DescriptionA "New York Times" bestseller. Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours. Paris, May 2002: On Vel' d'Hiv's 60th anniversary, journalist Julia Jarmond is asked to write an article about this black day in France's past. Through her contemporary investigation, she stumbles onto a trail of long-hidden family secrets that connect her to Sarah. Julia finds herself compelled to retrace the girl's ordeal, from that terrible term in the Vel d'Hiv', to the camps, and beyond. As she probes into Sarah's past, she begins to question her own place in France, and to reevaluate her marriage and her life. Tatiana de Rosnay offers us a brilliantly subtle, compelling portrait of France under occupation and reveals the taboos and silence that surround this painful episode.

If you liked the book theif, you will absolutely love this. by Homan Zandi
I truly loved this book from start to finish. The story line of a combination of fact and fiction made it an interesting read that absorbed you. Even after finishing this book I found myself thinking of the characters and storyline for weeks. I will even read this book again. by Vikki Oflus
This is the best book I have read this year. From the moment I started reading it grabbed me, and I was unable to put it down. Both of the 2 stories of people 2 generations apart, kept me reading, wanting to see what came next for each of them. I loved all of the characters in the book, they were all very believable.
I highly recommend Sarah's Key by Lynnette McIndoe
This is a truly wonderful story, so heart breaking yet beautiful at the same time. I literally could not put this book down, and needless to say the end came all too soon. Thank you Tatiana De Rosnay for telling such a compelling story. by Shenay
