I can't say I enjoyed reading this book, because it makes much more uncomfortable reading than that, but I found it an absolutely fabulous book. What is more, I intend to re-read it straight away in the original English; I will be intrigued to see if there are any subtle differences in the narrative.
In whatever language you read it, though, be prepared to be shaken - and stirred too! In particular it should be compulsory reading for anyone of French nationality whose watchword is Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité!

Sarah's account of her experiences following 16th July 1942 were very moving and gave me great insight into the situation. The feelings experienced by Julia as she discovered the events surrounding the flat in Paris and the family clearly had a major impact on her life. The second part of the book, based in the USA was quite different to part 1 and was less powerful.

This book, written by the sister of a friend, intrigued me. It will provide further insights into what was a most unfortunate period in the history of France. The book was delivered very promptly. Thank you.

I enjoyed this book whilst the focus was on Sarah but I think the author stretched the story too far by pursuing her anscestors. Definitely a page turner but a bit too neat and tidy at the end

It is written in easy to understand French and if you do not understand all the words you get the underlining story line.
