The Paris Children (by Gloria Goldreich) … wonderful WWII historical fiction story

I am a huge fan of historical fiction books about WWII and this one was another great addition to my library.  Having read another book about the forgery of papers to help children and adults escape from France, I was already familiar with the story line.  However, this was a very moving tale that touched me.  My heart ached for all of the people who were affected by Hitler’s evil machinations and it soared for all of those who worked behind the scenes to prevent his atrocities.  I was once again encouraged and reminded that there are wonderful people who demonstrate the positive aspects of mankind.  The characters are well developed and you will find yourself caring deeply about so many of them.

Madeleine was an amazing woman and her efforts on behalf of the Jewish people, even while dealing with a hearing loss, was nothing short of miraculous.  What a wonderful story of love and loss, family and friends, tragedy and achievements, evil and good. Thank you to NetGalley and SourceBooks Landmark Publishing for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I will definitely read more books by this amazing author!
