Thoughts:
Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnayis written in a simple language, maybe too simple but that’s OK since I’ve read books which tested my knowledge of the English language with every sentence and weren’t enjoyable the least.

This is an enjoyable book . The story revolves around the French roundup of Jews during WWII. A little girl, named Sarah, which escaped death and the search for her little brother whom she locked in a cupboard before the French police took their family away.
Very sad even if it is a fictional account (I hope).

The second story takes place much later and revolves around an American woman living in Paris, married to a French man, who discovers Sarah’s story and researches it while discovering, of course, a connection to her husband’s family.

The first story, the one about Sarah, is engaging, flows and is very touching.
The second story – not so much.

However, I did enjoy the book very much even though I think story number two could have been more engaging with more dimensional characters.
