An atmospheric, haunting and beautifully written story of how the people of the tiny Normandy village of Vergers cope with German occupation, and the destruction of all they hold dear. Relatives and neighbors are conscripted or assassinated. Food and fuel are meagerly rationed. Yet, the French villagers devise ingenious ways to support one another. You will be reminded of Emma’s cleverness and bravery when you eat a baguette again. The story also offers a different perspective on a major historical event….I can’t be any more specific!
