Publisher's Description

". . . 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, 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: in the grim camps of Auschwitz and in 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 Weisel’sNight, 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

    The book smoothly transitions for WWII era Austria to present day Manhattan.Both Adele's, Sera's, and WIlliam's story come together for a very interesting and uplifting read set during a terrible time in history. The author made the setting and characters come alive for the reader.

    Butterfly and the Violin, a masterpiece in itself, is the first novel in the Hidden Masterpiece Series. Sera, a Manhattan art dealer, is intent on finding a mysterious portrait of a young violinist ravished by the horrors of WW||. When William, wealthy heir to a real estate company, intends on finding the same exact painting to save his family's inheritance, Sera's and his paths cross. Together they uncover the dark hideous past that lurks behind those startling blue eyes.

    The author seamlessly went from contemporary to historical sharing two distinct stories. The author did a fantastic job creating two distinct and very sweet romances. The ending was perfect, sweet, and complete leaving no strings hanging.

    As more of the story enfolded each page seemed to whisper hope. The beauty with which the author portrayed how God gives beauty and talents to people to use for his glory was emotionally riveting. More than once I had to stop reading to analyze the rich profundity, my feelings, and even my convictions. The author tastefully created a richly endowed spiritual book with contemporary elements, and a rich historical backdrop.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.

    Everyone should read this book, a fictional, but true story. The horrors of Hitlers world, and the acceptance by many that willingly followed him, like lemmings going off a cliff. We put faces to these people, although they really could have a thousand different ones.

    A memory of a painting observed by an eight-year-old girl, becomes a life passion, and we become witnesses to how it came to be. Add in a family in possession of a copy of this same painting, thought to be the original, and we have a basis of the story.

    Sera James owns a Manhattan Art Gallery, and has a passion to find this picture she only glimpsed once. When her assistant finds it, or think she does, Sera heads to California and meets William Hanover III. So begins a chance romance, but it is not the main romance, there is another in this story. One that has to do with the Viennas Philharmonic, and the lives of compassionate and gifted performers who with Gods help eyes are opened to what is going on in their country. Vladimir and Adele are the Austrian side of this story, and what they do that lands them in Auschwitz.

    We change to different time periods in this book, and you keep hoping while knowing all the while what is about to happen. Hoping you are wrong, but the time was too horrible, that even the Germans tried to destroy all of the evidence. I so enjoyed this book, and even wanted more, not to be in the prison camp, but to see the three blinks of eyelids.

    You wont go wrong with this one, and it will keep you up trying to get to the end to find a conclusion, will anyone survive? Everyones life is about to be changed! I gave this book the top five stars, but it is worth much more!

    I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

    The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron.

    I never would have picked this book up on my own, hubby bought it for me. I must say I loved it. The author has weaved WW 2 era, modern day, a couple love stories (not sappy), a strong story line that keeps you guessing till the end. music, art and nice messages of hope. Certainly gonna start following this author.

    Perfect Masterpiece

    Two worlds can sum up my thoughts of this historical novel. Perfect Masterpiece. This novel, the first in A Hidden Masterpiece Series, the lives of four people, present and past, are blended completely and without any thread left unwoven. It is a novel that I could not put down, desiring to discover gems with the turning of each page.

    The beautiful language that this book was written in allowed me to picture the horrific scenes of Auschwitz, as well as the opulence in which two characters resided for a time.

    Although this is a historical novel, it is also full of romance , historical detail of which I never knew existed, and mystery surrounding a painting.

    This is a novel that I expect to win awards. With thought provoking questions tucked away in the back, it would be an excellent book study or a fabulous gift for yourself and a friend. I loved this novel and I know you will too!
