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

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

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.
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!
