Here is the complete list of our collection.
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
This novel juxtaposes two stories - the life of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist living in Paris, and the life of Sarah Starzynski, a Jewish child rounded up by the French police for deportation to Auschwitz. Julia has been given the assignment to research the roundup of French Jews in July 1942. In the process of her research, Julia learns about the Starzynski family and what the two women, who lived sixty years apart, have in common.
What follows is a very moving and haunting story. One that will surely stay with you for a very long time.

Book Review of All I Love and Know by Judith Frank
"This beautiful novel is old-fashioned in its approach, taking its sweet time to tell a tender love story between two flawed, good-hearted people, and yet it feels wholly fresh... This is a compassionate, utterly compelling story of how family members, torn apart by tragedy, must reach deep within themselves to meet their greatest challenge." -- excerpted from a review by Booklist.
