Excellent book and on sale @ Chapters right now. Nemirovsky completed three of five 'books' before being taken to a concentration camp. As interesting as her timely take on Paris in WW2 is the correspondence and journals that follow the three books explaining how she planned to finish them and her husband's attempts to rescue her.
My most favourite book, I read it in French and always with a box of tissues...

My favorite book of all time! - Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky....I keep meaning to pick this book up, I have it. I feel like everytime I go to pick my next book to read, they are all raising their hands & yelling "pick me, pick me next!"
suite francaise by irene nemirovsky... a great book!
This is a great read. It looks at the second world war from a very different viewpoint. It focuses on the people of France and how they are affected by the German occupation. The story has an amazing history behind it. Irene Nemirovsky wrote this in two parts and planned to include three more but unfortunately she was arrested as a Jew and detained at Pithiviers and then Auschwitz, where she died. In her journal she explains how the rest of the book would have evolved.

This book was selected as a literature project in my community several years ago. Citizens young and old could pick up a free copy at designated spots, read it, and drop it back off for others to read. There were related presentations, plays and activities that united the citizens and gave everyone a common topic to discuss.
The book that started it all...

Cazalet Chronicles. Have you ever met a family so intriguing you just wanted to be part of them immediately and never say goodbye? That's how the Cazalets affected me. From the opening scene when the maids rise early to prepare their morning tea until the closing page when the children's schoolteacher buries her long-held secret, this family draws you into their upper class English home.
