The bestselling novel that has touched millions of readers across the globe
Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door to door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard—their secret hiding place—and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released.
Sixty Years Later: Julia Jarmond, an American journalist, is working on an investigation into the Paris roundup. In her research, she stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah…and nothing in Julia’s own life will ever be the same.
