“A Sparrow in Terezin” by Kristy Cambron

“A Sparrow in Terezin” by Kristy Cambron is the second book of the Hidden Masterpiece Novels.  Even though some of the characters in this book have made their first appearance in “The Butterfly and the Violin”, and the book can be read without reading the first one in the series; it would be much better to read them in sequence.  102 more words
