Synopsis

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cuoard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours.
Paris, May 2002: On Vel' d'Hiv's 60th anniversary, journalist Julia Jarmond is asked to write an article about this black day in France's past. Through her contemporary investigation, she stumbles onto a trail of long-hidden family secrets that connect her to Sarah. Julia finds herself compelled to retrace the girl's ordeal, from that terrible term in the Vel d'Hiv', to the camps, and beyond. As she probes into Sarah's past, she begins to question her own place in France, and to reevaluate her marriage and her life.
Tatiana de Rosnay offers us a brilliantly subtle, compelling portrait of France under occupation and reveals the taboos and silence that surround this painful episode.

BookLender review by Jolene Hunt on 2020-04-12 14:24:59

Easy read, sad story but a good book. Hard to put down. You really get involved into the story and can feel the heart ache. Didn’t want the book to end.

Tatianas writing is very easy to read. The chapters flow and you get involved in the story and feel Julias plight. Even though the subject of the book is heartbreakening it is an eye opener to what really went on. I enjoyed the read.
