I’m hoping that Jessie wasn’t abducted…which may explain why she disappeared. No, it would be preferable that she simply returned to the quiet life of a librarian…or better yet, that she met some Frenchman from one of the demolished towns. a lone survivor if you will…and fell madly in love, ultimately spending the rest of her years in France.

I hope I am the eight person to comment!
I'm involved in Holocaust (Shoah) studies.
I enjoy learning from good fiction & non fiction about the era of WWII, as well as genocide in various countries, including that of the American Indians, which we in the US could acknowledge even better than we do.

I really loved her previous book and historical fiction involving France and WWII in general.

Connie Springer

Sounds fascinating


I have a Jessie Carson book from WW I in my personal collection, I always visit the Morgan Library in NY and other famous Libraries when I travel. Just visited the Thomas Jefferson collection at the Library of Congress in DC, so I appreciate the theme of using literature to build peace.
And a story that skips across decades in a library environment is dear to key heart, too.
