I don't know how I missed this one when it first came out! This wonderful novel is an evocative and bittersweet story of two sisters in occupied France during World War II. Vianne’s husband is a prisoner of war, and she must support their daughter by teaching in the local school. When a German officer is billeted with her, life becomes more fraught with danger. Rebellious sister Isabelle is unable to live quietly with Vianne, so she undertakes a more dangerous role in Paris.
