I loved the story. I loved how the writer used the journalist to investigated the story. It is two stories in one intertwing with each other. It is terrible what happened. The writer made it sound very real. The story is fiction but the events very are real.
the book itself is really long and it drones on. the narrator has a soothing voice and is nice to listen to. but you might fall asleep.
What started out as a great premise quickly took a wrong turn by being overly lengthy. Telling the stories from the viewpoint of two women, one is a child suffering under the Nazi’s; the other is an older married woman. I was not at all interested in the modern day sections of the book; I was only interested in Sarah`s story. I found after her part of the story was done I was wishing it would continue on, slowing us her life instead of Julia's.
It's an excellent book that sheds light on what happened to the Jews in France during the war while still holding your imagination about a current day family"s connection to the main character. It's a must read and a must recommendation for others to read.
