Suite Francaise

Suite Française - Irène Némirovsky, Sandra Smith The fictional account of life in France before and during the German occupation of WWII. This book was written by a Jewish woman who did not finish the manuscript before she was taken away to a concentration camp. Based on historical events, the stories involve Parisians and rural French citizens who must cope with life during the invasion of France by the Germans. Bittersweet and wonderful--a true picture of life in France during WWII.
