I have just finished reading one of the novels dropped off for us by our local librarian on the day our lockdown started a couple of weeks ago.
I was not sure at first if I would enjoy it so had left it until I had finished the more obvious choices in the pile. It follows the paths of a blind French girl and a young German orphan through the years of the Second World War leading ultimately to the meeting of their separate paths very briefly in occupied France at the time of the D-Day landings.
Some of you may have already read this book as it is a few years old now.
I became totally absorbed in it right from the start and found it quite beautifully written and ultimately quite sad. It may not appeal to everyone but I am quite disappointed that I have finished it so soon.
