Sarah's Key


Sarah's Key
by
Tatiana De Rosnay


I have always been fascinated by the history of the Holocaust and ever since I heard Regis Philbin talk about this book on 'Regis and Kelly' I have had it on my wish list. Well yesterday my hubby picked it up along with a book he needed for school because he too wanted to read it. He brought it home at noon and by 7 pm I was done! It sucked me right in and I couldn't put it down. It was that good so if you are looking for a good read I highly recommend this book!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PARIS, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door-to-door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard-their secret hiding place--and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released.

SIXTY YEARS LATER Sarah's story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own romantic future.
