In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France…but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When France is overrun, Vianne is forced to take an enemy into her house, and suddenly her every move is watched; her life and her child’s life is at constant risk. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates around her, she must make one terrible choice after another.
Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets the compelling and mysterious Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can…completely. When he betrays her, Isabelle races headlong into danger and joins the Resistance, never looking back or giving a thought to the real–and deadly–consequences.
I snagged this book for $4.88 during an Amazon flash sale in December. It’s been sitting on my shelf ever since, staring at me, whispering, “read me.”
This book has been getting so much attention lately because it’s being turned into a movie. I plan on starting this book very shortly, it’s next to line after my physical copy of Saving Meghan and right before The Guest Book…maybe it will help me keep my butt reading instead of being too distracted to read! Have you read this book, what did you think of it?
