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 Brionna 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.

I finished this book quickly. It had a great message about how God works in our lives, but I agree that the modern day portion seemed a bit forced.

This is Cambron's debut novel - very moving. It's about having faith in God in difficult times.

When art dealer Sera James glimpsed a haunting portrait as a young girl, she never forgot it. Trying to work out recent hurts and disappointments in her life, she begins searching for the portrait and the story it might tell. This book has a powerful message and my heart was saddened as the story from the past unfolded. Yet, it does have a message of hope. The romance elements in the story sometimes seemed forced and out-of-place to me, but overall I thought the book was very good.
