I am about 1/2 way through this book and it is a very intriguing story about a girl and her family in German occupied France during WWII. The girl is an old woman now, telling the story, so it mixes past and present as it unveils slowly something terrible that happened (I don't know what that is yet.) This is the author who wrote 'Chocolat' so there is a culinary piece to it. So far very good.

The ending does not live up to the beginning in my opinion. Still interesting read. Some what like 'The Kite Runner.'
