Book Club: Suite Francaise

This book had been on my list for a while:

a. It takes place in France

b. It takes place in France during WWII

But it is the author that intrigued me the most. Irene Nemirovsky, already an established French author at the beginning of the War, witnessed the invasion and occupation.Unfortunately, she died in Auschwitz in 1942, leaving behind an unfinished manuscript that wouldn’t be discovered until decades after her death.

This novel is beautifully written, but what makes it even more poignant is the story about its inception and the woman behind it.
