The Room on Rue AmélieBook - 2018
Newlywed Ruby Benoit arrives in Paris in 1939 with her French husband Marcel, imagining strolls in the golden afternoon light. But war is looming on the horizon, and as France falls to the Nazis, her marriage begins to splinter. Charlotte Dacher is eleven when the Germans roll into the French capital, and when Jews are ordered to wear the yellow star, she can't imagine things getting much worse. Thomas Clarke joins the British Royal Air Force to protect his country; when his mother dies during the waning days of the Blitz, he wonders if he's making a difference. Fate brings them together, and Ruby, Charlotte, and Thomas must summon the courage to defy the Nazis-- and to open their own broken hearts-- as they fight to survive.
