it was amazing

It is books like this that make me a fan of historical fiction. The story is written in parallel between a 10 year old girl that is arrested with her family in 1942 dring the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup and an American journalist living in Paris and writing a piece on the sixtieth anniversary of this horrible event. In the midst of her family being arrested, this brave girl locks her 4 year old brother in a secret closet with the promise of returning to him. Her painful journey to the camps with the drive to return home and save her brother makes this book impossible to put down. As the journalist uncovers the disturbing details of this time, it haunts her as it did me, as the reader. The story is most chilling as it holds so many facts and truths. Well worth your time to read.
