Review: SARAH’S KEY by Tatiana de Rosnay

Another book I selected for the WWII reading challenge was Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.  Here’s an excerpt from the review I posted on Diary of an Eccentric (click the link to read the full review):

Overall, Sarah’s Key was an engaging, emotional read, and it brings to light a little known historical event.  Sarah’s story is among the saddest I’ve ever read, and while mostly devoid of hope, it seems authentic, which is important when dealing with subjects like the Holocaust.

  1. I just finished the book. The author tried to lighten the story with the 21st century romance of Julia. That did not entirely work for me, but the history was solid.

  2. silverseason: Thanks for stopping by. I agree that Julia’s story wasn’t as captivating as Sarah’s. I will be sure to check out your review and add it to our WWII Book Reviews page.
