Drumroll… The EXCITING day is here!
This book was unveiled at the HarperCollins Christian Publishing Sales Conference today, so we can now share it with the rest of you. Here it is, the title and cover art for the Hidden Masterpiece #2:
A Sparrow in Terezin
The full synopsis will follow soon, but the story centers around the children’s art of the Theresienstadt transport camp (also known as Terezín), the Nazis’ propaganda camp north of Prague.
A Sparrow in Terezin follows a key character from the historical storyline in The Butterfly and the Violin (which I can’t share because it would be a major Spoiler). It also introduces Kája Makovský, a Czech-born journalist who survives the worst of The London Blitz in 1940, only to be later transported to Terezín when trying to help her family flee Nazi-occupied Prague at the height of the war. Here in the camp, Kája uses her love of art and of storytelling to help the children – all under the age of fifteen – cope through the horrific experiences of the Holocaust.
A Sparrow in Terezin will release from Thomas Nelson (Harper Collins Christian Publishing) in April, 2015.
