MovieGripping story - emotional performance! Tatiana de Rosnay wrote Sarah's Key. It is a moving story of a journalist who uncovers secrets related to World War II and her family.
bookA decades-old mystery unsolved. A courageous life unknown. A family's secrets untold - until now. Julia Jarmond is an American journalist living in Paris with her French husband Betrand, assigned to cover the anniversary of France's notorious 1942 Vel' d'Hive Roundup of Jews in World War II. She's stunned to discover that Betrand's family apartment was the scene of an unspeakable incident committed during the war; his family has been concealing a disturbing secret; and a young French girl Sarah holds the key to unlock the devestating truth.
The book was phenomenal and the movie which was just released on DVD was excellent. I was gripped from the moment it began. Click on the book or movie to place a hold for your copy.
