Sometimes a quote from a book just gut punches you so much that re-reading it no fewer than 10 times is required. Wow. 🤯🤩💟
“An artist was driven to create art even in the worst of times. Perhaps especially then.” - Edouard Moss from “The Postmistress of Paris” by Meg Waite Clayton

This book was absolutely amazing and heart wrenching. Such an incredible story! The author did a fantastic job of weaving both women's stories together! One of the best books I've read in a long time.

She crushed their lips together, unable to hold back for one more minute. “Yes,” she said when they pulled apart, knowing it was true, whatever she was agreeing to. “Yes, yes, yes.”

Really enjoyed this book on WWII and the women who helped! The story has several story lines that start then intertwine together.

A weird comfort, hope and inspiration of mine is this fact:

What percentage of the French population
participated in the Resistance?

First off, active resisters before D-Day constituted not a small minority of the French population but a TINY ONE-perhaps as low as two percent of the people were actively engaged in publishing underground newspapers, sabotage operations, intelligence gathering,recruiting, or participating in one of the networks.

TheBookHippie I am enjoying this massive read for #FOODANDLIT FRANCE 1mo

In a few hours, my book club will gather to discuss this month‘s pick! My first experience with the author, this WWII novel clips along at a consistently quick pace. Set mainly in France during the war, there‘s also a 2005 element to Eva‘s story. A lifelong book lover, Eva falls into the role of a forger of documents during the war. The titular book houses the real names of her fakes. The plot takes a few familiar turns but is hard to put down!

SilversReviews LOVED this book and LOVE this photo!! 1mo

“We are all guilty of seeing things through the lens of our own lives.”

This guilt is my current heartbreak. It helps to see my feelings articulated on the page.
