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 cupboard 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.

    " Worth reading for the Vel d'Hiv treatment, but it was extremely hard to care about a modern troubled marriage in this context "

    " One of the best books ever! Very sad and a tear-jerker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Joella | 2/2/2014

    " An engaging plot that keeps you turning the pages. A little more "best seller" than I tend to like (more plot than theme), but it was extremely interesting to read a historical fiction novel about a lesser-known Holocaust event in France during WWII. Overall, I liked the book, but the ending was a bit abrupt. "

    " Really liked it more than I expected. Knew I would cry given the topic... But still enjoyed the story and characters. "
