This novel Sarah’s Key By Titiana De Rosnay is about the history of The Holocaust and how Sarah, wanted to escape from the camps. There are two stories one is the past and the other in the present, Michael is in the past and Zoe in the present.
The policeman punished if they wanted to leave. Family members go to the camps and they live or die suffering and wanting food to eat. Zoe goes to a family vacation long beach and New York to give Sarah the paper to give Michael that he’s in the cupboard waiting for Sarah to get him.
The connection I have with the character is that my birthday is in February when Charla’s baby was born in February. The author’s style of writing is descriptive about the characters and the writing what happens in the story. “I wish I can help the people and not get their heads shaved off” (81).
(Makes you want to predict what happens next). My experiencing of reading this book was interesting and wanted to know what great events happens or great points in the story. The author predicts what happens next by giving the character an emotion and a pause.
Type of reader who would enjoy this if the reader like historical novels and what happened in the Holocaust. My experience by reading this book was interesting about the Jewish people getting arrested and escaping.
Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten- year- old, 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 investing the round up. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own romantic future.
