The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel

“There’s something almost miraculous about seeing a child’s eyes light up when you hand him a book that intrigues him. I’ve always thought that it’s those children—the ones who realize that books are magic—who will have the brightest lives.”

Kristin Harmel’s World War II era novel based on a true story is a real page-turner.

Eva, a librarian in Paris flees to southern unoccupied France after the Nazis take her father. Although Eva intends to go to Switzerland, she ends up becoming a document forger to save hundreds of children whose parents are in concentration camps.

This book is full of love, bravery and resilience during a time of great despair. I highly recommend it!
