"Two women, one in the present day and one in 1942, each hope for a brighter future. But they'll both have to battle through their darkest days to reach it. Today. With the grand opening of her new gallery and a fairytale wedding months away, Sera James appears to have a charmed life. But in an instant, the prospect of a devastating legal battle surrounding her fiancé threatens to tear her dreams apart. Sera and William rush to marry and are thrust into a world of doubt and fear as they defend charges that could separate them for life. June 1942. After surviving the Blitz bombings that left many Londoners with shattered lives, Kája Makovsky prayed for the war to end so she could return home to Prague. But despite the horrors of war, the gifted journalist never expected to see a headline screaming the extermination of Jews in work camps. Half-Jewish with her family in danger, Kája has no choice but to risk everything to get her family out of Prague. But with the clutches of evil all around, her escape plan crumbles into deportation, and Kája finds herself in a new reality as the art teacher to the children of Terezin. Bound by a story of hope and the survival of one little girl, both Sera and Kája will fight to protect all they hold dear"-- Provided by publisher.

I thought it was one of the best books I ever read!

I was quite disappointed by this book. It did not live up to the reviews by the critics. First, the enormous problem that keeps being alluded to and finally shared is solved in a rather off-hand manner at the end of the story. Second, it is difficult to see how the two different plot lines come together. Third, the references to faith come across as lacking real meaning and struggle - almost as if they are thrown in so that this could be called a "Christian novel." This book is more a cheap romance rather than a book of intrigue.
