It takes place in and around Paris. The chapters alternate between the voice of a ten year old girl in 1941 and a woman reporter of today. The story is about the French police rounding up the Jews and sending them off to almost certain death... a piece of history I was totally unaware of. You'll love Sarah who is one of the children rounded up and sent away. She escapes from a prison camp to get back to Paris to find her younger brother who she locked in a cupboard (the key) to hopefully keep him hidden an safe from the enemy.
The woman reporter is writng a story about the Round-up and slowly learns about Sarah and the house she lived in.
I won't tell anymore. Just dash to the library or bookstore and grab a copy of Sarah's Key.
Then plan on ordering in or getting Take-out as you won't want to leave your chair.
Make a great day!
