Butterfly and the Violin, a masterpiece in itself, is the first novel in the Hidden Masterpiece Series. Sera, a Manhattan art dealer, is intent on finding a mysterious portrait of a young violinist ravished by the horrors of WW||. When William, wealthy heir to a real estate company, intends on finding the same exact painting to save his family's inheritance, Sera's and his paths cross. Together they uncover the dark hideous past that lurks behind those startling blue eyes.
The author seamlessly went from contemporary to historical sharing two distinct stories. The author did a fantastic job creating two distinct and very sweet romances. The ending was perfect, sweet, and complete leaving no strings hanging.
As more of the story enfolded each page seemed to whisper hope. The beauty with which the author portrayed how God gives beauty and talents to people to use for his glory was emotionally riveting. More than once I had to stop reading to analyze the rich profundity, my feelings, and even my convictions. The author tastefully created a richly endowed spiritual book with contemporary elements, and a rich historical backdrop.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.
