New Book Club Selection - Sarah's Key

Tonight was another example of how great friends, delicious food and drinks, and discussing a good book can be the most perfect evening. Book club was great and I always enjoy seeing the ladies and discussing great books. We all loved the book Heaven is Here and had a lot of deep and inspiring discussion about this book. We also spent a good amount of time trying to decide on our next selection and finally landed on choosing Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. 

 Here is a short blurb about this book:
  • Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door to door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard—their secret hiding place—and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released. Sixty Years Later: Sarah’s story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own future. In Sarah’s Key, Tatiana de Rosnay offers up a mesmerizing story in which a tragic past unfolds, the present is torn apart, and the future is irrevocably altered.
I just ordered this book and can't wait to start reading it. I am always excited to start a new book and hope this selection captures my attention! Happy Reading!
