Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old Jewish girl, is arrested by the French police in the middle of the night, along with her mother and father. Desperate to protect her younger brother, she locks him in a cupboard and promises to come back for him as soon as she can. Paris, May 2002: Julia Jarmond, an American journalist, is asked to write about the 60th anniversary of the Vel' d'Hiv'--the infamous day in 1942 when French police rounded up thousands of Jewish men, women and children, in order to send them to concentration camps. Sarah's Key is the poignant story of two families, forever linked and haunted by one of the darkest days in France's past. In this emotionally intense, page-turning novel, Tatiana de Rosnay reveals the guilt brought on by long-buried secrets and the damage that the truth can inflict when they finally come unravelled.

Most awful narrator ever

Story was ok. A bit trite and sentimental.
Reader was dreadful - irritating voices for characters.

Moving and sensitive story

Two very different worlds and two very different stories that smelt into one, EXQUISITELY done in my view!

The only thing I wanted was to read on. I found it a gripping story, and I became part of both worlds.

It is a beautiful and moving story of a little Jewish girl during the second world war, and an American journalist in Paris in 2002. I was intrigued by the fact that the life of the girl was so linked with the life of the inlaws of the journalist.

The fact that the narrator changed voices according to which person was talking, sounded a bit odd in my ears, however, this didn't at all change my opinion about the book. was a great read! The story stayed with me for days after it had ended.
