Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky – what a fantastic book. It is an intriguing story set in 1940 during the early years of German occupation of France. It is a story of despair, fear, chaos but also in the end – HOPE.
In the first chapter of Suite Française, STORM, Irène portrays the life of the people of France where they have to flee their homes, hiding in the fields, and flee to the neighbouring cities.
The different characters are portrayed so well;
