Moving Second World War fiction
The New York Times bestseller from highly-acclaimed, multi-award winner Anthony Doerr, tells the tale of a blind French girl and a German boy who meet in occupied France during the Second World War. When Hitler’s troops invade Paris, 12-year-old Marie-Laure and her father flee with a dangerous secret to a walled city by the sea.

Their two paths cross when Werner is sent to the same walled city to intercept Resistance radio broadcasts. Deeply moving and stunning, All the Light We Cannot See will delight Doerr’s army of fans.
