What readers are saying about her latest novel
THE SILVER LOCKET
I really enjoyed reading this book and I was immediately hooked to characters, the plot and the author's writing style. This book is set on World War II where there was a raging war between Europe and the Pacific. In this book two young women’s destiny are bounded by one baby girl who will grow up as a product of an untold secret. This book captivated my attention from the first few pages and I was left intrigued by what would happen next. The author was very vivid in describing every scene of the book and portrayed the emotions well through her words. I liked how the story unfolded and enjoyed the many interesting twists. This is a book full of emotion and thrill. Two thumbs up for the author. I really liked this story and can certainly recommend it.

I had a hard time putting it down! I wasn't born in this era (a bit later) but it was fascinating to read a story intertwined with real history happening around the characters. The reality of life and the beauty that came from it brought me to happy tears by the end. I loved the other books by this author and I was not disappointed with this addition to her repertoire! You will love this storyteller, she's a keeper.

THE SILVER LOCKET was a riveting read full of drama, suspense and emotion. It is extremely well written with vivid descriptions. The interesting plot holds your attention and you find yourself continually wondering what's next. I literally could not put it down! The author is a master at developing characters and weaving the themes consistently throughout the novel. I would love to see this book made into a movie. Outstanding piece of writing, highly recommended.

Sophia Bar-Lev's contemporary novels are moving and exciting. Her characters are alive and real. The atmosphere she creates is warm, bright and peaceful. Her settings are exotic, stylish, romantic places like Florence, Italy. She creates a colorful world in her stories.
Can you imagine the spacious, cobblestoned piazzas, the ornate European buildings constructed in Gothic and Renaissance style, the lush flowers, the cafes, the fountains?
Sophia Bar-Lev's novels flow in a steady pace and once you start reading, you cannot put them down. Ms. Bar-Lev deals with emotions masterfully; she captivates the readers' attention in the first sentences and adds situations that resonate with them and touch the deepest core emotions. This is how she rivets her readers.
Her contemporary novels are alike Italian operas; dramatic, grand, sweeping. The writer has the charisma and dazzle of a Meryl Streep. She can be lighthearted and deep, serious and smart at the same time and she knows a thing or two about the power of positive thinking.
You will find yourself rooting for Sophia Bar-Lev's characters from the get go; they are like any other woman, having the same problems and issues. You have a sense that "I know her...she is like me...like my mamma....like my friend."

Heartwarming Women's Novels
I believe...... that a book is the vessel for an idea. Like the tall glass of ice-cold lemonade on
a hot summer's day, it's what inside the book that matters.
I believe....that there are two ways of spreading light; to be a candle
or the mirror that reflects it. Edith Wharton
As a writer, my goal is to spread the light of goodness, kindness, compassion and truth
in a realistic, inspiring and enjoyable format.
