Sera has been obsessed with a painting for a very long time. She gets a chance to find the original but only if she finds it for a rich family. The subject of this painting is a famous violinist who was sent to a concentration camp during the Holocaust.
I didn't know this book was told in two timelines. We follow Sera who works in a gallery and she is trying to find an original painting. The second story line is about Adele a famous violinist who get sent to a concentration camp for behavior correction.
I really wish this had just followed Adele's timeline. With her point of view we saw a young girl struggle with going against her family and standing up for what she thought was right. We caught a glimpse of how some talented prisoners were treated during such a horrific time. It was a wonderful story about survival.
And all of that gets dragged down by cringe worthy instalove melodramatic storyline. I hated Sera's POV so much. I found her to be incredibly one dimensional.
I just found her to be so annoying.
Sera's storyline failed to balance out Adele's. Sera just seemed so childish and cliched.
She really brought down this book for me.
I give this book a D.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
