In this beautiful and bittersweet novel set during World War II, Anthony Doerr
tells the parallel tales of  Marie Laure, a blind girl living in
occupied France, and Werner, a young German radio enthusiast in the
Hitler Youth program. Doerr's portrayal of Marie Laure's
relationship with her father, the locksmith at Paris's Museum of Natural
History, is tender and true. Werner's journey across Europe, where he
helps ferret out resistors, is unflinching and richly detailed. Through
these characters, Doerr encapsulates the great horrors of war. Moreover, he weaves a deeply compelling story of lives torn asunder and united.
