The Butterfly and the Violin

Sera James once saw a striking painting of a young woman in a concentration camp, holding her violin. In the years since she laid eyes on the painting, she has sought to find it again. When she comes across a copy of the original painting, she is instantly swept up in the mystery surrounding an inheritance left to the owner of the original painting.
In late 1942, Adele Von Bron is a young musician who trades the world of performing for that of the concentration camps when she is caught smuggling Jews out of Vienna.
This is a beautiful story of sacrifice and love. I picked it up because of the beautiful cover, and found that the story is every bit as beautiful as the cover. If you enjoy historical fiction, this one is a must!
