Any book that deals with a library has to be a winner for me. The Paris Library during the WW2 Nazi occupation of France is the centerpiece of this wonderful historical fiction epic. Unfortunately, the author Janet Skeslien Charlie flips between the WW2 period and 1983. Janet Charlie falters when she tries to connect Odile, heroine of the occupation section, with Lilly from 1983. But without enough vivid details and delicious characters you’ll easily be able to forgive the period framing device.
