Book Review: The Cellist of Sarajevo

For those who never experienced life in a war zone, this novel by Steve Galloway takes you there through the eyes of four main characters. Living in very different situations, the four face a common enemy—snipers shooting from the hills. The story bares not only their precarious existence but their very souls and the impact the struggle to survive has upon them. In the midst of this mayhem, one of them, the cellist, vows to play his instrument on the street for 22 days in honor of 22 people killed by a bomb.  

The story makes you count your blessings and pray for peace. It was chosen by our local library system as the 2013 book selection.
