Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I found this book to be very interesting and sad. I was drawn into the lives of the characters and the events that were occurring. It is hard to believe that this is a work of fiction because Ms. Némirovsky did such a wonderful job of describing the events that were taking place around her.
What really got to me though was Ms. Némirovsky's story, which was at the end of the book. I found this to be even more interesting and compelling than the story that she wrote. I don't think that people can truly appreciate the story that she wrote and the circumstances that she was writing in unless they lived through that period of time.
