Publisher's Description

"Fresh. Fascinating. Unforgettable. The Butterfl y and the Violin is a masterpiece of a debut." —Laura Frantz, author of Love’s Reckoning

". . . impossible to put down." —RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, TOP PICK!

A Mysterious painting breathes hope and beauty into the darkest corners of Auschwitz—and the loneliest hearts of Manhattan.

Manhattan art dealer Sera James watched her world crumble at the altar two years ago, and her heart is still fragile. Her desire for distraction reignites a passion for a mysterious portrait she first saw as a young girl—a painting of a young violinist with piercing blue eyes.

In her search for the painting, Sera crosses paths with William Hanover—the grandson of a wealthy California real estate mogul—who may be the key to uncovering the hidden masterpiece. Together Sera and William slowly unravel the story behind the painting’s subject: Austrian violinist Adele Von Bron.

A darling of the Austrian aristocracy of 1942, talented violinist, and daughter to a high-ranking member of the Third Reich, Adele risks everything when she begins smuggling Jews out of Vienna. In a heartbeat, her life of prosperity and privilege dissolves into a world of starvation and barbed wire.

As Sera untangles the secrets behind the painting, she finds beauty in the most unlikely of places: the grim camps of Auschwitz and the inner recesses of her own troubled heart.

"In her historical series debut, Cambron expertly weaves together multiple plotlines, time lines, and perspectives to produce a poignant tale of the power of love and faith in difficult circumstances. Those interested in stories of survival and the Holocaust, such as Eli Wiesel’s Night, will want to read." —Library Journal, starred review

". . . debut novelist Cambron vividly recounts interwoven sagas of heartache and recovery through courage, love, art, and faith." —Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

'In chapters alternating between past and present, debut novelist Cambron vividly recounts interwoven sagas of heartache and recovery through courage, love, art, and faith.”
'In her historical series debut, Cambron expertly weaves together multiple plotlines, time lines, and perspectives to produce a poignant tale of the power of love and faith in difficult circumstances. Those interested in stories of survival and the Holocaust, such as Eli Weisel’s Night, will want to read.'
'Alternating points of view skillfully blend contemporary and historical fiction in this debut novel that is almost impossible to put down. Well-researched yet heartbreaking scenes shed light on the horrors of concentration camps, as well as the contrasting beauty behind the prisoner's artwork. Two stories are carefully intertwined and demonstrate that there is always hope in God despite the monstrosities inflicted by man.'
'This amazing book was emotionally engaging and very hard to put down. Its message of trusting God no matter the circumstances is one that will stay with your customers.”

    This book is a masterpiece! I read all the time and this book has really touched me deeply. It is creative, has a well managed plot, and the characters will draw you in.

    It involves the Lord in all aspects of the book in a way that many don't realize. It doesn't give chapter and verse, but in the worst circumstances, (a prison camp during WWII), it brings God into the midst of the camp's horrors. People made it through because of God's strength and desire to live.

    This book will make you realize how the war broke people in the camps, not only the starvation, but the terror of never knowing when you might be beaten or killed. Remarkable insight.

    There are some books that you know are going to impact your life. As you turn the pages the images, the story, becomes forever engrained in your mind. This is one of those books, prepare to became forever invested, forever changed.

    The Butterfly and the Violin, is the set in both present day and during World War II. Cambron eloquently intertwines the two tales, transitioning between the two with ease. The book reveals itself the way history often does, over space and time.

    Sera James, an art gallery owner, has been searching for an original painting of a portrait that has significant personal meaning to her from her childhood. This portrait is a piece of Holocaust art, of a woman playing the violin. A copy has James flying across the country to meet with its mysterious owner; the owner of the portrait passed away and she is left to deal with his grandson William Hanover. Mr. Hanover informs her that his grandfather willed his entire estate to the owner of the painting and therefore he too is seeking the original. Their paths are intertwined for the better or worse as they search for this piece.

    Adele Von Bron is the daughter of a general of the Third Reich. She is Austrias sweetheart, a title bestowed on her because of her talent as a violinist. Despite her familys prominence in the Reich, Adele knows that what Germany is doing is wrong. She has fallen in love with Vladimir Nicolai, a musician and son of a merchant, a relationship that was doomed before it ever began. Her family would never approve of him because of his lower status; moreover they would not hesitate to report someone who was aiding those the Germans were trying to cleanse themselves of.

    Has a book ever swept you down a river of emotion and elegance? Was there beautiful despair tossed in?

    The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron not only took me down that river but sent me into an ocean of awe. The poignancy of the tale captured my interest from the first chapter and built layer upon layer of various emotions until I couldn't help but weep as I read.

    This may be Kristy's debut novel, but she certainly has arrived on the book scene with gusto. I know authors often say they never "arrive," but sometimes a reader knows when an author brings a unique voice and important stories to the table. And the best part for readers, in my opinion, is that Kristy's stories teach invaluable lessons in an entertaining yet very organic way.

    In the extraordinary book The Butterfly and the Violin, Sera James searches for the Holocaust painting that piqued her interest -- and captured her heart -- at the tender age of eight. Tracking down the piece of art and its secrets proves more difficult than simply calling the contacts she's made since opening her art gallery. Once she finds a sliver of a lead, Sera's real journey begins. But will she discover a victorious end to her pursuit or the birth of an entirely different dream?

    The Holocaust at Auschwitz is predominantly featured in this book and may be difficult to read for some people. I recommend you pre-read this one before sharing it with your children (including teenagers).

    That being said, this story is so powerful and beautiful. Honestly, words can't do it justice. It really brought history alive to me in a way that had me feeling the dirt between my toes, the filth on my skin, and hearing Adele's music as if she were playing a solo right in my living room. I greatly appreciate the attention to detail, intricate application of research, and raw passion Kristy Cambron put into the writing of Butterfly. The story reminded me of The Diary of Anne Frank and Corrie ten Boom's The Hiding Place. I hope you will enjoy The Butterfly and the Violin, a real masterpiece in our generation.

    I absolutely loved The Butterfly and the Violin! It captivated me from the very first page and I was unable to put it down until the last page had been turned. Kristy Cambron has woven two beautiful stories, one present day and one historical, together to create a literary masterpiece.

    Beautifully written with excellent characterization and vivid, historical details, The Butterfly and the Violin is a poignant story that stirred my emotions. Its characters and spiritual messages won't soon be forgotten! I highly recommend this book for fans of historical fiction, especially World War II era fiction!

    Have you ever read a book because it had such rave reviews, but found yourself disappointed and wonder why everyone loved it so much? Let me tell you, there is a reason why The Butterfly and the Violin has high ratings. It is well deserved. I highly recommend it. I am definitely not disappointed and can't wait to read more by Kristy Cambron.

    Great book!

    5 plus stars.
