The Cellist of Sarajevo

Our county and several other counties have a program called the One Book, One Community. This is the featured book for the year:  The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway.

I’m still wrestling with the fact that Sarajevo is not the only place that hatred has affected. Ugly things are happening all around the world, right now. And, hatred can breed in our own hearts. Lord, have mercy.
