All the Light We Cannot See (Large Print / Paperback)
If you love historical fiction and you haven’t heard of this book yet, then put it on your TBR now! This book is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. The writing is lyrical, giving the setting and characters and artistic, enduring, almost magical feel that will keep you reading to the very end. This magical WWII story will make you see the world and the WWII conflict with new eyes and inspire you to plan a trip to Saint-Malo.— Michelle

“The French girl cannot see, but she can hear, feel, and explore the world around her like a budding naturalist. The German boy has no parents, but he teaches himself how coils of copper can receive lessons of love and learning. It's World War II, however, and the potential of thousands of children will be unrealized or thwarted. Will a mythical gemstone save them or unite them? Gorgeously written, Doerr's epic tale brings alive the beauty of two souls, their quest for learning, the turbulent times they cannot control, and the rock that mysteriously guides their fate.”
