Well this novel certainly lived up to the hype. What a beautiful, and heart-breaking story of two adult sisters living through the German occupation of France during World War II.

I loved it. I liked the characters. I enjoyed trying to figure out who was telling the story. The story captivated me. There were heroes and villains. How people survived the occupation amazes me. Each does what they can to survive and fight. I don't want to say much because I don't want to ruin the...

This book is an excellent reminder why hate spewing blow hards should not be entrusted to to run the country. Bad things happen to good people. PS - this was the last audiobook given away at the now defunct Ford Audiobook Club. Thanks Ford. I don't know if your book club and giveaways ever inspired ...

What an awesome book. While listening to this book my library time ran out and had to wait for to become available again, when it did I decided to start at the beginning. WOW, what a book. Over 17k reviews at amazon 15k at goodreads. I'd read this book over and over again it was that good.

Look, I knew the second world war was crazy horrible. I knew millions of people died, I know people were killed in the most horrible ways. I knew all that.
