Yesterday afternoon, I read a new favorite book of mine called Sarah’s Key. This wonderful book is about a ten-year-old Jewish girl named Sarah who lives in France. When the police come banging on the door to take Sarah and her family to the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup, Sarah locks her little brother in their secret hiding place to keep him safe. She promises to come back for him, and takes the key with her to the roundup. Sixty years later, a woman named Julia Jarmond is a journalist writing an article on this horrific event. She soon finds out about Sarah, and is instantly drawn to her. Julia makes surprising discoveries on Sarah’s life that link them together, and will change Julia’s life forever!
Sarah’s Key is an amazing book and I would rate it 5+ stars! My next book is The Time Travelers Wife.
Keep on reading!
