All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doer

$27

This beautifully crafted novel is set largely in France during World War II and chronicles the intersecting paths of two ordinary people – a boy who grows up in a German orphanage and is trained as a radio specialist for the Nazis, and a blind French girl who escapes Paris with her father when the Nazis arrive and ends up in the walled coastal enclave of Saint Malo. It is a multi-layered tale written in short, crisp chapters that evoke not only the horrors of war but the decency and goodness that emerge in humanity’s darkest moments. (Politics & Prose)
