All the Light We Cannot See

All the Light We Cannot See

By Anthony Doerr

This book, while set mostly in Germany and France before and during the war, is not really a “war novel”.  The author’s focus is on the interior lives of his two characters.  Marie Laure is a blind 14-year-old French girl who flees to the countryside when her father disappears from Nazi-occupied Paris.  Werner is a gadget-obsessed German orphan whose skills admit him to a brutal branch of Hitler Youth.  (Sara Nelson)
