A story with Paris, a book shop, a publishing house and set in the past and present sounds like a great idea.
Charlotte was a difficult character to know. I didn’t feel as if I knew any more of her story than what we knew at the beginning.
What was her sin? We know people who did whatever they had to do to survive the Nazi regime. They lied, they took food from the enemy, some even informed on their own people. But Charlotte wasn’t one of them. And where this war is concerned, people aren’t so forgiving of those who did what she did.
The entire thing felt disjointed and shallow. Not my cup of tea.
