About the Book
Anna has one chance for survival-and it lies in the hands of her mortal enemy.
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.

Author Liz Tolsma’s The Melody of the Soul is an inspiring and powerful story of the relationship between the Jews and Nazis and how difficult it could be. It is of the struggle of being a Jew or Christian Jew and going into hiding; about a Nazi soldier who is stuck doing things he doesn’t want to do and doesn’t believe is right. It’s about the struggles of life, but the hope of life as well; and especially of unexpected friendship and romance between completely different people from completely different backgrounds. This novel connects readers with the characters in a way that they will not soon be forgotten. Readers will fall head first into this novel, its history, and the engaging characters, and not want to put it down. This is a story that readers of WWII history will not want to miss!
