The Melody of the Soul ~ Book Review

About the book:

Anna has one chance for survival-and it lies in the hands of her mortal enemy.

It's 1943 and Anna Zadok, a Jewish Christian living in Prague, has lost nearly everything. Most of her family has been deported, and the Nazi occupation ended her career as a concert violinist. Now Anna is left to care for her grandmother, and she'll do anything to keep her safe-a job that gets much harder when Nazi officer Horst Engel is quartered in the flat below them.

Though musical instruments have been declared illegal, Anna defiantly continues to play the violin. But Horst, dissatisfied with German ideology, enjoys her soothing music. When Anna and her grandmother face deportation, Horst risks everything to protect them.

Anna finds herself falling in love with the handsome officer and his brave heart. But what he reveals might stop the music forever.

My Review:

I am always intrigued by stories that take place around WWII. There are so many rich stories to be told. Things that we can not even being to imagine that took place. I'm grateful for the story tellers like Liz Tolsma, who takes us to a unique place during 1943 and the German occupation of Prague. In "The Melody of the Soul", we get to know Anna, who is a Jewish Christian. She has basically lost everything, including her career as a violinist and is living with her grandmother. Things in her world become worse, when Horst, a Nazi officer, moves in downstairs from her.
We get to see the turmoil of their lives in such a desperate time. It's an edge of your set kinda of book. Get ready to have your heart pulled apart & put back together again. I'm saying that as a reader, who wants to be changed by a book. And this one changes you.

I received this book from Litfuse for my honest review.
