Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

I can certainly understand why Sarah’s Key is one of the most-read books for discussion groups, with all of the elements of mystery, tragedy, deception, etc. Those that enjoy historical fiction will love this, as it appears to be pretty accurate. (Yes, I did look up some of the “facts”.) This is the story of a young Jewish girl in France in the summer of 1942, and the horrors she endured during the Nazi occupation.  It is also the story of a journalist in present day trying to find out informaton about this little girl. The novel is very well done; however, I would caution that this is a very, very depressing novel that really bothered me in many ways. Be prepared when you pick this up; it can be quite upsetting.

One thought on “Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

  1. Great and fast read. Quite a lage turner. It got a bit slow near the end; however, ever detail was vital to the story. Beautifully written story. Will look into more stories from this author. This was my first book by her, and I enjoyed it.
