Sarah's KeySarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sarah is a ten year old Jew taken with her parents during a round-up in 1942 Paris. She has locked her younger brother in a secret cupboard to protect him from the police and promises him she'll come back for him once they are released. Sixty years later, Julie Jarmond is a journalist given the job of writing about the 60th anniversary of the Vel' d'Hiv (the rounding up of the Jews in 1942). As Julie and Sarah's lives collide in this breathtakingly poignant story of mystery, heartbreak, and determination, we learn we must remember, and never forget. A beautiful story sure to move you.
