This novel is narrated by four children....all aged 6 or thereabouts. Each child is trying to make sense of their situation, yet fails, as they are only 6!
The story retreats in time from present day California to Munich during the second world war, with stops on the way.
Each child's voice is pure and confused.
The novel covers things I didn't know happened during the second world war.......and perhaps most people are unaware. The consequences of the actions are in this case far reaching but settled within the novel.
This novel makes the reader think, which is not a bad thing.

Nancy Huston is a French speaking Canadian, this novel was originally written in French. Nancy Huston translates her own books.
