I know this book came out some years ago, but I just recently read it and it's one of the best books I've ever read. I'm new to this board so I'm not sure how you do things here, but I won't give anything away. It tells the story of a Jewish girl living in Paris when the Nazi's made the Paris police round up the Jews, and the story of a woman living in Paris in modern times. The author alternates each of their stories by chapter. I generally don't like when authors tell stories from various points of view, but this worked so well. I couldn't wait for the next chapter as each female had such an interesting story. The two points of view came together in such an amazing way by the author. This book was fiction, but the roundup of Jews in Paris was real. It was a very good read. Our book club just read this book last month and we all liked the book.
Sorry if I've done this wrong, I didn't take the time, I admit, to look at other posts on here. And the book is a few years old so perhaps most of you have already read the book. It was so good I just had to share.
