All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr
In Paris, Marie Laure goes blind when she is 6. Her father builds her an exact model of their Paris neighborhood so she can read it like Braille, and walk the real streets. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to relatives in Saint Malo.
In Germany, bright and talented orphan, Werner, is snapped up by the Third Reich to attend an elite and brutal military academy. Destined to become a highly specialised tracker of the Resistance, school life paints a stark picture of the merciless and total brainwashing of the Nazi Youth.
Their paths cross in Saint Malo.
A slow beginner for me but a real page turner once I got into it.
