Julia’s Violinist

At age 19, Julia fell in love with the baker’s son from a neighbouring village. He was handsome, fun to be with, and played the violin so sweetly. But their love was not to be.

Fast forward twenty years. World War II has been lost. Julia, now a widow with two small children, is trying to rebuild  her life after postwar atrocities left her raped, homeless, and deported.

Gradually she rebuilds her life, but her new husband is hard to live with at times.

A letter arrives from Canada. “I’ve been searching for you  through the Red Cross for years. I’m so happy I’ve found you at last. Please come to me in Canada. Life is better here.”

By some miracle, her first sweetheart is still alive.  But what to do?

    This month, in my budget I may choose to purchase a couple of books. I usually pick just one to start from an author. My past years of applying to library acquisitions didn’t bring more than one of my choices out of at least thirty, including your books I carefully wrote out all titles. . .
    I am debating which book to choose but this one has history and a love story. . . I like that you have Canada included so am wondering is this loosely based upon a grandmother or relative’s story? Hugs, Robin

      My mother provided a lot of the background of what was happening in those days so I was able to use some of her firsthand experiences. It is fiction but based on what was happening then.

      Thanks, Patsy. I love the characters in Julia’s Violinist. They are flawed but wonderful and they have so many challenges. I think you would love it if you read it. The Wind Weeps is also a page turner, but it is a coastal story, the first of three (The Wind Weeps, Reckoning Tide, and Marlie). Two very different settings, but I hope you have a chance to enjoy them all.
