Sarah’s Key

I’ve listened to a few great books lately and thought I would share one with you….
Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.

The book intertwines two stories, one present day and one from France in WWII. In the early part of WWII
French police come and round up Jews. Not understanding, a four year old Jewish boy is frightened and hides in a secret cupboard. His ten year old sister, in a split second decision, locks her brother in the cupboard and
takes the key with her as she is taken away with her parents. The lives of several families take a new course because of that split second decision.

I am completely draw to books about pioneer life, holocaust, or any books where people triumph over unimaginable circumstances.  I am a true “mouse in the corner cheerleader” cheering the main characters on while my heart is completely breaking for them.  If you like those type of books, this is one for you. 

Does the boy get out of the cupboard?  Does the boy die in the cupboard?  It’s definitely worth a read.

    It is a wonderful book. I read it over the summer. I think it was one of the 50 best books from Amazon for 2009.
