9780062240309 Beautiful and mysterious, The Keeper of Secrets by Julie Thomas follows a priceless violin across generationsâ€”from WWII to Stalinist Russia to the gilded international concert halls of todayâ€”and reveals the loss, love, and secrets of the families who owned it. Â In 1939 Berlin, 14-year-old Simon Horowitzâ€™s world is stirred by his father's 1742 Guarneri del Gesu violin. When Nazis march across Europe and Simon is sent to Dachau, he finds unexpected kindness, and a chance to live. Â In the present day, orchestra conductor Rafael Gomez finds himself inspired by Daniel Horowitz, a 14-year-old violin virtuoso who refuses to play. When Rafael learns that the boy's family once owned a precious violin believed to have been lost forever, Rafael seizes the power of history and discovers a family story like no other.
