Reading in 2010: Sarah’s Key

This book was really good. Historical fiction, detailing the Vel d’Hiv round up of Jewish families in Paris in July 1942. How appropriate since Sunday was Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The book flips back and forth between Sarah, a 10-year old Jewish girl in 1942, and Julia, an American journalist living in present-day Paris. Eventually, Julia uncovers a link between her in-laws and Sarah’s family, which has been a source of hidden shame and guilt for years.

Definitely recommend this book to the historical fiction lovers out there.
