I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

This was a pretty good read. I really loved the first half. The author does a fantastic job of weaving in the historical story of Holocaust victim, Sarah, with the present-day story of the main character. The second half was less entrancing for me. I wanted more about Sarah and less about the present day characters. Overall though, it was very well written, and a quick read. I was completely unaware of the police action of the French that sent 80,000 Jewish French to the gas chambers. In all the reading I've done on WWII, this isn't something I remember coming across. I thought the author's ability to depict the horror of that experience from a child's point of view was impressive and touching.
