Review by: Town Spirit on July 06, 2013 :
Julia's Violinist is a book about people. Not good people, not bad people, just people making their way through life surrounded by upheaval, tragedy, necessity and different kinds of love. It's a story about how deep happiness and great sadness can be exactly the same emotion.
Be prepared to grit your teeth as you read, and to tear up, but also to be left with that mixed feeling of sweet sorrow.

Review by: Darlene Jones on Feb. 27, 2013 : (no rating)
I had the good fortune to read Julia’s Violinist before publication. One woman’s struggle to survive and protect her children in the aftermath of WWII is a war story with a difference. In her novel, Purchase focuses on Julia’s determination and her strength of will. Despite all that she endures, she is a survivor. It’s Julia who holds her family together during the horror of reprisals and the deprivation of deportation and internment.
But Julia’s violinist is above all a story of love—for children, parents, siblings and the three men in her life. You will cry for Julia, you will root for Julia, you will cheer for Julia, and above all you will come to love Julia.
This is not just one woman's story, but the story of many women, any one of whom it would be an honor and a privilege to know.
