Summary
  • Francia, 1939. En el tranquilo pueblo de Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac se despide de su marido, Antoine, que debe marchar al frente. Ella no cree que los nazis vayan a invadir Francia, pero lo hacen, con batallones de soldados marchando por las calles, con caravanas de camiones y tanques, con aviones que llenan los cielos y lanzan bombas sobre los inocentes. Cuando un capitán alemán requisa la casa de Vianne, ella y su hija deben convivir con el enemigo o arriesgarse a perderlo todo. Sin comida ni dinero ni esperanza, Vianne se ve obligada a tomar decisiones cada vez más difíciles para sobrevivir. La hermana de Vianne, Isabelle, es una joven rebelde de dieciocho años que busca un propósito para su vida con toda la temeraria pasión de la juventud. Mientras miles de parisinos escapan de la ciudad ante la inminente llegada de los alemanes, Isabelle se encuentra con Gaëton, un partisano que cree que los franceses pueden luchar contra los nazis desde dentro de Francia. Isabelle se enamora completamente pero, tras sentirse traicionada, decide unirse a la Resistencia. Sin detenerse nunca para mirar atrás, Isabelle arriesgará su vida una y otra vez para salvar a otros
  • "Vianne and Isabelle have always been close despite their differences. Younger, bolder sister Isabelle lives in Paris while Vianne lives a quiet and content life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. When World War II strikes and Antoine is sent off to fight, Vianne and Isabelle's father sends Isabelle to help her older sister cope. As the war progresses, it's not only the sisters' relationship that is tested, but also their strength and their individual senses of right and wrong. With life as they know it changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Vianne and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions. Vivid and exquisite in its illumination of a time and place that was filled with great monstrosities, but also great humanity and strength, Kristin Hannah's novel will provoke thought and discussion that will have readers talking long after they turn the last page"--
