We follow Odile Souchet as she applies to be a librarian in an English-speaking library in Paris, 1939.
I loved Paris, a city with secrets. Like book covers, some leather, some cloth, each Parisian door led to an unexpected world.
Dad and I hovered at the side of Mom's hospital bed. She tried to smile but her lips just quivered.The two lost souls find solace in each other, and soon a grandmother-granddaughter relationship begins to form.
I was skeptical about soulmates, but could believe in bookmates, two beings bound by a passion for reading.I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I'm not normally one for war books and war books riddled with flashbacks and flashforwards.
"Atrum post bellum, ex libris lux.
After the darkness of war, the light of books."
