Read in April, 2008

This author planned a 5-part novel and completed 2 parts before whe was killed in Auschwitz in WWII. Her daughters saved the manuscripts and they were recently published. Both parts take place in France in the beginning of WWII when the German army occupied Paris. I liked the 2nd part better than the first. There were a lot of characters introduced in part 1 - some of them carried over and characters intertwined in part 2. I would really have liked to listen to parts 3-5. I felt like it was just getting going.
