Sarah's Key

After I read the last page and put this book down I thought it was good but it haunted me. I found myself returning to thinking about it from the different viewpoints of the characters. You could see how every character got to the place where they made the crucial decision that led to the book's drama. I like it more every time I think of it. Great book!

I had trouble getting into the book and almost put it down permanently. After 125 pages, I got into it- it's reminiscent of Jane Austin or the Bronte sisters.

Shoemaker's Wife

Started slow but then I got into it. Liked the close calls these two people have but hated the boring ending. Thought the middle about Caruso was the most interesting part.

Wow! One of my all-time favorites!

Not usually a Stephen King reader, I absolutely loved this book. So thought-provoking while still an adventure from the first page to the last! Bravo!

Wow!

This book takes WWII to another level, from the point of view of two youngsters drawn into a time they cannot understand. I am going to use this as a novel study with students from now on.

Don't give up on this one.

It took me a bit to get used to the author's very different writing style and figure out just what was going on but then I got hooked and wanted to know what happened! It's one of those books that you keep thinking about long afterward.
