Confessions of a Bibliophile


“The Girl With a Violin” Shelley Davidow

If ever a book got my whole attention from beginning to end, it was ‘The Girl With the Violin”.. I loved this story.  It begins with the ambition and the longing to visit Berlin to study with a renowned musician and to find more about the demise of her Jewish grandmother. As her dream starts to become fact, the story becomes far more involved.

The whole story develops like a perfect composition of music, of frustration, of love, of self awareness.. it entices the reader to want more. Definitely a book to be reread.
