Item description for And the Violin Cried by Susan Joy Clark...

Samantha Andrews is a sixth grade Christian girl who is best friends with a Jewish violin player, Annie Rosenberg, also a sixth grader. Their friendship is broken due to the difference in their faiths. A group of boys, who call themselves the Black Knights, do a series of anti-Semitic and bullying acts in the school, affecting Annie and her older brother David, including breaking Annies heirloom violin which has an interesting history dating back to Holocaust times in Hungary. Because of their actions, Samantha and her family have an opportunity to show Christian love to Annie and her family. Dimitri Paulakis, one of the Black Knights, just wants to fit in with the tough guys and have their protection. Will he learn to fear God instead of fearing the gang?

Reviews - What do customers think about And the Violin Cried?

An Adult Novel about Juveniles  Jun 24, 2009
Although labelled as a youth novel, many adults have enjoyed reading this book. The characters are well-developed, and various chapters tell the story from the viewpoint of various characters. So you get inside their heads and empathize with them. I felt that I couldn't put the book down from the time I finished the first chapter.

The chapters involving the Jewish family's experiences during the Holocaust seemed like a historical novel because of its connection to real historical figures and events.

The author treats the tensions between the Jewish and Christian faiths, as well as between orthodox and liberal Jewry, with great sensitivity and respect. A careless remark by a well-meaning Christian and a gang of juvenile boys who dabble in antisemitism create situations that not only strain the friendship between the Jewish and Christian families, testing their faith, but also causes one of the gang members to question where his gang activities are taking him.

This novel has an exciting and gripping plot, but beyond that, it makes you think about how one's faith should guide you through life's trying circumstances, and how to communicate your faith honestly and kindly to others.
If you're looking for a great read, this book is worth an A+  May 3, 2007
This book was FANTASTIC! It is so well written that I literally hated to put the book down. The author is a personal friend of mine and I always knew she had the talent to write a great book, and "And the Violin Cried" exceeded my expectations to say the least. The characters have wonderful personality and depth, their feelings are real, and the conflicts they face are things that all kids - and adults - go through at one time or another in their lives. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who wants to read a "real" book that has topics and lessons that apply to all people, not just kids.
