I recently finished reading All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. The story takes place during WWII, but is not a war novel. The chapters are alternately told by Marie Laure, a blind 14-year old French girl who flees to the countryside from Nazi-occupied Paris and Werner, a gadget-obsessed German orphan whose skills lead him to a brutal branch of Hitler Youth. Eventually, their paths cross late in the novel. If you enjoy history or are an avid reader of historical fiction, this book is a must!
