Review: CHARLOTTE GRAY by Sebastian Faulks

One of the books Tracey from A Book Sanctuary (click for full review) chose for the WWII reading challenge was Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks.  Here’s what she had to say:

There are many facets to this story. Charlotte’s personal journey and her relationships with the people of Lavaurette; and her need to find out what has happened to the man she loves form a part of the story.The heart of this story I think is the effect of the war on France and her people and their response to the German occupation. The deep division between those that are almost accepting of the occupation finding it preferrable to the perceived alternative of communism should the allies win, and those that cannot tolerate it and the absolute horrors inflicted on the Jewish people.
