All the Light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr

World War 2- Marie-Laure is blind and makes her way to Saint-Malo with her dad – bringing with them a rare gem from Parisian museum where dad works. Werner is a young German boy who becomes a key player in the German occupation of France because of his extraordinary gift with all things radio related. The parallel stories eventually come together in a suspenseful and very satisfying (although sad) way. No real villains here – no stereotypes – just ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events that test their characters – and isn’t that what great books are like? Terrific read!
