Sarah's Key #sarahskey A great WWII book from the point of view of a jewish child living in France, and a present day journalist researching WWII.

Sarah's Key http://media-cache7.pinterest.com/upload/282952789057901535_LwfvoGHK_f.jpg cindybatt books worth reading

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay ~ Book Review {Living Outside the Stacks} One of my favorite books

Sarah's Key - Sweet Tea & Lollipops: {Book Club Friday}: Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Such an amazing book. Sarahs Key - She closed the door on the little white face, turned the key in the lock. Then she slipped the key into her pocket. The lock was hidden by a pivoting device shaped like a light switch. It was impossible to see the outline of the cupboard in the paneling of the wall. Yes, he’d be safe there. She was sure of it. The girl murmured his name and laid her palm flat on the wooden panel. “I’ll come back for you later. I promise.” -From Sarah’s Key, page 9-

Sarah's Key Just finished this incredible story. So worth reading!

Amused By Books: Book Review: Sarah's Key

Sarah's Key, on my to read list.

Today is my first Book Club Friday!  I am hoping to get in the swing of reading again and I am sure I will find some great suggestions over at Blonde...Undercover Blonde's link up. The last book that I read was Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.  I picked it up on the way to get a pedicure to have something to read and the main reason I settled on it was that it is a historical novel.  The main story is fictional but the events that occurred are factual.  I loved the book and I was unable to put it down once I started.  It is the first book that I have read since becoming a mother and I saw what a different light I view things from.  If you read it, you will see why. I also see that I must have been under a rock somehow missed the fact that it has been made into a movie. Here is an overview from Barnes & Noble: 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. And here are some reviews: “This is a remarkable historical novel, a book which brings to light a disturbing and deliberately hidden aspect of French behavior towards Jews during World War II. Like Sophie's Choice, it's a book that impresses itself upon one's heart and soul forever.” –Naomi Ragen, author of The Saturday Wife and The Covenant “Sarah's Key unlocks the star crossed, heart thumping story of an American journalist in Paris and the 60-year-old secret that could destroy her marriage. This book will stay on your mind long after it's back on the shelf.” –Risa Miller, author of Welcome to Heavenly Heights I hope that if you pick it up you love it also!  If you are looking for something new to read, or have a book review yourself, hop on over to Book Club Friday and link up!

One of the best books I've read. Ever.

Corrie Ten Boom's The Hiding Place . A book about honor, faith, courage and survival - one of my favorite books.

The Hiding Place (Hendrickson Classic Biographies) by Corrie Ten Boom, Still one of my all time favorites

The Hiding Place (Hendrickson Classic Biographies): Corrie Ten Boom - living in Austria during Hitler's march across Europe. Her family hid Jews in hiding places they created in their home. The Jews were never found but Corrie and her family went to Concentration Camps. This book led to me coming to know the Lord!

The Hiding Place - Corrie Ten Boom. One of my favorite books. Need to read again, it's MANY years

The Hiding Place, the inspiring true story of Holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom, With the WWII Nazi invasion of Holland, the ten Boom family joins the underground resistance to help save persecuted Jewish families. They quietly shelter Jews in their small house - until Nazis discovered their hiding place. When they are arrested and imprisoned in concentration camps themselves, This is a story of forgiveness that one can only comprehend through the love of Christ.

A real life story of a concentration camp survivor. THIS IS A BOOK WORTH READING!

The Hiding Place - Corrie Ten Boom One of my all time favorite books

Film, Music & Books - The Hiding Place, Corrie Ten Boom,, awesome story.. worth reading.. also there is a film.

Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) was a Dutch woman admired the world over for her courage, her forgiveness, and her memorable faith. In World War II, she and her family risked their lives to help Jews escape the Nazis by hiding them in their home in Haarlem, and their reward was a trip to Hitler's concentration camps. Corrie's father, sister, brother, and nephew died as a result of their imprisonment. But she survived and was released-as a result of a clerical error-and now shares the story of how faith triumphs over evil.For thirty-five years Corrie's dramatic life story, full of timeless virtues, has prepared readers to face their own futures with faith, relying on God's love to overcome, heal, and restore. The Hiding Place tells the riveting story of how a middle-aged Dutch watchmaker became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's death camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century.After the war, Corrie ten Boom returned to the Netherlands to set up rehabilitation centers. She returned to Germany in 1946, and many years of itinerant teaching in over sixty countries followed, during which time she wrote many books. In 1967, Corrie ten Boom was honored as one of the 'Righteous Among the Nations' by the State of Israel. The Hiding Place (1971) was made into a film in 1975. The Hiding Place: Corrie ten Boom (9781598563399) by Corrie ten Boom, Elizabeth Sherrill, John Sherrill

Wow, truly the best non fiction book I have read in years. Almost impossible to put down.

Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo. Getting my 2013 reading list together.

Katherine Boo spent more than three years (from late 2007 to early 2011) observing life in the slum of Annawadi. First book of 2013. This will be my book club read in August. What others are saying: What is remarkable about Behind the Beautiful Forevers is how invisible Katherine Boo is from the narrative.

Book For the Socially Conscious: Katherine Boo wrote the National Book Award Winner Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity ($27) after three years of reporting. The narrative nonfiction piece reveals insights into the lives of Mumbai families, plus the inequality that's shaped their reality.

2012 National Book Award Winner for Non-Fiction - Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo

I am excited to see that Behind the Beautiful Forevers has won the 2012 National Book Award for Nonfiction! My book club is currently reading this.

Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity - Katherine Boo spent three years among the residents of the Annawadi slum, a sprawling, cockeyed settlement of more than 300 tin-roof huts and shacks in the shadow of Mumbai’s International Airport. From within this “sumpy plug of slum” Boo unearths stories both tragic and poignant--about residents’ efforts to raise families, earn a living, or simply survive.

The dramatic and sometimes heartbreaking story of families striving toward a better life in one of the twenty-first century's great, unequal cities. In this fast-paced book, based on three years of uncompromising reporting, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human. Annawadi is a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport, and as India starts to prosper, Annawadians are electric with hope. #bookclubs

Behind the Beautiful Forevers is non-fiction. Several times in reading this enlightening book about the people of a Mumbai slum, I had to remind myself that this is reporting based on three years spent there conducting interviews and reviewing public records. I was fascinated by the people and their stories and I want to learn more. Katherine Boo writes wonderfully and I recommend this book and the web site which includes photos and videos. #nonfiction #india #poverty #journalism #culture

Defending Jacob/I could not put this book down.

Just started reading this "Barnes & Noble recommends" title. For those who don't know, B&N recommends are books read and recommended by human booksellers who are not paid for their recommendations.

Excellent book. The moral dilemma of the narrator, whose son is accused of murder, is extremely complex. He has a blind spot that he cannot break through no matter how much the reader wishes that he could open his eyes. The plot, characters and descriptions make the book very engaging. I listened to it while I was driving and often got home before I was ready to stop listening. I constantly wanted to know what would happen next. The author has tackled a difficult subject extremely well.

Really good book. Makes me think of "We Need to Talk About Kevin"

Excellent Book..reminds me of Jodi Picoult books

One of my favorite books ever.Defending Jacob/

Great Book

I love this book. It was highly recommended to me by a coworker at my very first job. I have reread it many times since 1987. It's like revisiting old friends. If I were artistic, I would paint the Shellseekers so that I could have it always. I can see that painting in my mind to this day...well, as I imagine it to be.

One of my all time favorites....read it many times. I like Hallmark's movie version with Angela Lansbury.

The Shell Seekers is a novel of connection: of one family, and of the passions and heartbreak that have held them together for three generations. The Shell Seekers is filled with real people--mothers and daughters, husband and lovers--inspired with real values. The Shell Seekers centers on Penelope Keeling--a woman you'll always remember. One of my all time favorites

The Shell Seekers One of my all time favorite authors...have read all of her books!

One of my favorite authors. Her main women characters are always strong and smart.

definitely in my top three favorite books of alllll time ... The Shell Seekers

Book 73: Reconstructing Amelia - Kimberly McCreight

Reconstructing Amelia (Kimberly McCreight) at Booksamillion.com. Litigation lawyer and harried single mother Kate Baron is shocked when her daughter's exclusive Brooklyn private school calls to tell her that Amelia her intelligent, high-achieving fifteen-year-old has been caught cheating. But when Kate arrives at Grace Hall, she's blindsided by far more devastating news: Amelia is dead..

In Reconstructing Amelia, the stunning debut novel from Kimberly McCreight, Kate's in the middle of the biggest meeting of her career when she gets the telephone call from Grace Hall, her daughter’s exclusive private school in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Amelia has been suspended, effective immediately, and Kate must come get her daughter—now. But Kate’s stress over leaving work quickly turns to panic when she arrives at the school and finds it surrounded by police officers, fire trucks, and an ambulance. By then it’s already too late for Amelia. And for Kate.An academic overachiever despondent over getting caught cheating has jumped to her death. At least that’s the story Grace Hall tells Kate. And clouded as she is by her guilt and grief, it is the one she forces herself to believe. Until she gets an anonymous text: She didn’t jump. Reconstructing Amelia is about secret first loves, old friendships, and an all-girls club steeped in tradition. But, most of all, it’s the story of how far a mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she couldn’t save.Fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl will find Reconstructing Amelia just as gripping and surprising. Book Description Litigation lawyer and harried single mother Kate Baron is shocked when her daughter's exclusive Brooklyn private school calls to tell her that Amelia—her intelligent, high-achieving fifteen-year-old—has been caught cheating. But when Kate arrives at Grace Hall, she's blindsided by far more devastating news: Amelia is dead. Despondent, she's jumped from the school's roof. At least that's what Grace Hall and the police tell Kate. It's what she believes, too, until she gets the anonymous text: Amelia didn't jump. Now, Kate is going to find the truth—no matter where it leads. Sifting through Amelia's e-mails, text messages, and Facebook posts, Kate reconstructs the pieces of her daughter's life and the people in it, uncovering why she was on Grace Hall's roof that day—and how she died.A superb blend of Tana French and Jodi Picoult, Reconstructing Amelia is a story of secrets and lies, friends and bullies. It's about how well any parent really knows their child and how far one mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she could not save.
