The Melody of the Soul Book Review

The Melody of the Soul by Liz Tolsma book review.

A Nazi officer. A Jewish Czech violinist. Her music haunts him. When he’s faced with losing it, he’ll go through any length to save it. And her.
 
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.

Book Review: I have read a number of Liz Tolsma’s books and have enjoyed everyone of them. The Melody of the Soul does not disappoint. She weaves faith, love, pain, suffering, war atrocities, loyalties, family bonds, and history throughout this wonderful story. One reason I enjoy Liz’s books is because, every time I read one, I come away with a piece of history that I had not known before.
This book held my attention until the end…which I read in about two days. It’s one of those books that one can hardly put down. Not only does Liz craft a great story but it gives one a feel for just how difficult and horrendous this time in history most have been.
One walks away from reading this book with a better understanding of what war does to humanity, as well as, how deprived the human race can become.
I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy history and romance.
I would certainly give this book five stars.
Blessings, Kasey
