Laurie Mullane | 5 comments I read this probably 20 years ago. I recall a young girl living above a shop and a staircase. I think she was hiding books. Possibly set in Germany?

Laurie, how old is the girl? Who does she live with?

What's the time period of the story?

I would say adults - I don't recall that it was written in a YA format.

I think it was 1940s - that's why I'm thinking is was situated in Germany - but don't remember for sure.

I added possible genre and plot details to the topic header. Feel free to update it by clicking the small “edit” link after the header. This only works on the full Desktop website – not the Mobile website or app.

No - but that is one I will put on my TBR list!

Why does she possibly hide books (e.g., books are burned or destroyed, considered controversial, her parents disapprove, just personal treasures)? What's the tone or mood of the story?
