'I'll come back for you later. I promise.'

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old Jewish girl, is arrested by the French police in the middle of the night, along with her mother and father.

Desperate to protect her younger brother, she locks him in a cupboard and promises to come back for him as soon as she can. Paris, May 2002: Julia Jarmond, an American journalist, is asked to write about the 60th anniversary of the Vel' d'Hiv'-the infamous day in 1942 when French police rounded up thousands of Jewish men, women and children, in order to send them to concentration camps.

Sarah's Key is the poignant story of two families, forever linked and haunted by one of the darkest days in France's past. In this emotionally intense, page-turning novel, Tatiana de Rosnay reveals the guilt brought on by long-buried secrets and the damage that the truth can inflict when they finally come unravelled.

Industry Reviews

'Sarah's trials are so riveting, her innocence so absorbing, the book is hard to put down.' (Starred review) - Publishers' Weekly

Masterly and compelling, it is not something that readers will quickly forget. Highly recommended. - Library Journal

A gripping story of loss, family secrets and silence - Warwickshire Telegraph

Absolute Classic


This is one of my all time favourite books. I came across it by accident originally when I found it on a plane. Then I bought this copy as a gift for another bookworm. I could not part with my copy. I am keeping it as one of my Classics. I have also seen the movie and it is just as good. 10/10

A little disappointed


Sorry I found this book very disappointing. A really good idea badly executed. The two story lines seemed disjointed, and I wanted to know more of the historical side of the story which was not developed all that well. The modern voice quite frankly was annoying and self centred.
