    TATIANA DE ROSNAY was born in the suburbs of Paris and is of English, French and Russian descent. She is the author of nine French novels. She also writes for French ELLE, and is a literary critic for Psychologies magazine. Tatiana de Rosnay is married and has two children. SARAH'S KEY is her first novel written in her mother tongue, English.

    A New York Times bestseller.

    Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours.
    Paris, May 2002: On Vel' d'Hiv's 60th anniversary, journalist Julia Jarmond is asked to write an article about this black day in France's past. Through her contemporary investigation, she stumbles onto a trail of long-hidden family secrets that connect her to Sarah. Julia finds herself compelled to retrace the girl's ordeal, from that terrible term in the Vel d'Hiv', to the camps, and beyond. As she probes into Sarah's past, she begins to question her own place in France, and to reevaluate her marriage and her life.

    Tatiana de Rosnay offers us a brilliantly subtle, compelling portrait of France under occupation and reveals the taboos and silence that surround this painful episode.

    • Must Read

      This book is a must read! The way the past & present are woven together is amazing. I could not put this book down and read it in one night. It is sad, you will cry, you will read about the horrible things that human beings do to each other but you will also see that human beings also have grit, determination, and the capacity to do the right thing.

      this one still makes me sad. i care so deeply about the suffering of others who are not in a position to help themselves. i know there are horribly cruel humans in this world, sometimes i wish i could be a separate entity from them, but i cannot, so speak out against cruelty in any form, whether it be humans or the other wonderful creatures here who live with us.

      I would highly recommend this touching story to everyone who is willing to read more about the terrible atrocities of Nazi halocaust, I had not heard of the happenings of July 16th in Paris before and have since researched historical documentation. The book bothered me at first, with alternating chapters of "present" and "past" but about halfway through it seemed to come together. Such a sad tale, but worth the read.
