"....Based on the true story of the town of Le Chambon—the only French town honored by Israel for rescuing Jews from the Holocaust...:

Have not read the history of Le Chambon, but was aware that France was duped into turning over their Jewish citizens to the German Nazis. Until reading this book, I was unaware that these citizens of France had taken such a commendable stand against Hitler's pogrom.

This story is finely written; the plot and characters are woven from historical fact, and a seamless rendition of grace emerges from the author's insight into the mercy of a repentant heart. The folks in Le Chambon learn that mankind is capable of great harm to their own. When one looks at another as a brother or sister in need, we can become living testimonies to God's grace to us all. These folks learn and practice that grace.

Enjoyed this read, and would recommend to teen and adult audiences.
