Suite Francaise | Irène Némirovsky
post image

The first part this book depicts life of Parisian refugees fleeing the German occupation of Paris. The author follows different families as they try to survive life on the road. The second part of the book shows a glimpse of the life in a French village that is occupied by the Germans. This book was published posthumously and I would have loved to read the author‘s finished manuscript.

Lcsmcat This was the first Nemirovsky I read, but I highly recommend reading her other books, if you can find them! (Some have been translated and others are only available in French.) 2mo
Cinfhen This was such a powerful book. Good choice for published posthumously 2mo

Mdargusch I really thought it would be more of a historical fiction/romance by the cover @Cinfhen I‘m glad it was more on the powerful side. 2mo
Tex2Flo I‘ve been holding this in my TBR for years. Glad to hear such a firm recommendation. 2mo
Mdargusch I really appreciate WWII books told from a slightly different perspective @Tex2Flo 2mo
Zelma I loved this book so flipping much. And the notes at the end about Nemirovsky were even better than the book, or maybe made me love it more, I can‘t remember which. 2mo
LeahBergen Oh, I loved this one. ❤️ 2mo
Mdargusch The notes at the end were such an added bonus @Zelma ❤️ 2mo
