Book 55

Suite Francais by Irene Nemirovsky falls into the category of being made into a movie this year.  It was written during early WWII and is two parts of a planned 5 part novel.  There are characters that return in part two from part one, although the two are completely different.  I can't wait to see how they tie them together in the movie or if they even try.  The other three parts were never written as the author was a French Jew who was arrested in Paris in 1942, sent to Auschwitz and died.  I found the stories compelling and the characters intriguing.  I wish she'd been able to finish the tale for us, but I really appreciate that no one else did try.
