I haven’t read Sarah’s Key, but the cover of this book really drew me in. I loved the way the book was setup, drawing the reader in with the “event” that started everything and then working up to and past that “event”.
I was surprised by the plot had so much push and pull about life and death as well as how family members survive and move on after death. I definitely didn’t expect the characters to face more death throughout the book. In a way, I could see similar plot structures to a crime drama series – just as the characters figure some part of the puzzle out a whole another twist of fate happens.
I enjoyed watching Antoine grow as a character from the beginning to the end. This book is full of mystery and intrigue as well a heartwarming family centered story.
