Book Review - great find!

So, given that I was just in Paris (have I mentioned that, hee hee), I have been reading a bunch of books that take place in Paris or have something to do with it. Before our recent family trip, I ran to our public library to grab a few books. In the "featured book" section I found a book called Sarah's Key. It was such a great read. It is a book about the French treatment of Jews in WW II. It was really fascinating, and took place in the neighborhood we stayed in - le Marais. I highly recommend it. I read it in one day - a day where I spent 10 hours in an amusement park with my kids. Probably got through the whole thing in 2 hours. I couldn't put it down. A bit sappy, perhaps, but I loved it.

frustratingly - it appears the author is French, and all her other books are yet to be translated....

That sounds like a interesting read... I am not a big reader but I might have to search it out.

Ooooooh, Paris! I've been four times, and was just commenting to my hubby that I'm pining to go again. I didn't have a good camera last time - I could do some serious damage with my new lens!

Congrats on your trip. And I'll check out the book, too!

Thank you for very much your comment about my book. I wrote it directly into English, my mother tongue. My Dad is French, my mother British. My next book is in English too !Out next year.
all best from Paris
