Sarah's Key | von Tatiana de Rosnay | Verlag: Macmillan Usa | Seitenanzahl: 368 | erschienen am 01. November 2016 | Preis: 6,99 € | Taschenbuch | Kaufen! | Meine Wertung : 4 Sterne |

With more than two million copies sold and over two years gracing bestseller lists, Tatiana de Rosnay's debut novel "Sarah's Key" has found its way into the hearts and minds of readers everywhere. 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, Michel, 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, 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 connects 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. (Quelle: Orell Füssli Schweiz)
