This is such a good book!
It's a story about hope, courage and faith.
The story toggles between a present-day-woman who was jilted at the altar on the day of her wedding and a woman who endures the cruel treatment of the concentration camps during WWll. In spite of their situations, the author shows so beautifully how God can turn something so evil and senseless into good. The human spirit, although weakened and tested, cannot be broken and can prove victorious with perseverance, hope, faith and courage in the end.
I highly recommend this book!

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.
