All the Light We Cannot SeeAll the Light We Cannot See
by Anthony Doerr

Argenta Library

Description:

Marie-Laure has been blind since the age of six. Her father builds a perfect miniature of their Paris neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. But when the Nazis invade, father and daughter flee with a dangerous secret. Werner is a German orphan, destined to labor in the same mine that claimed his father's life, until he discovers a knack for engineering. His talent wins him a place at a brutal military academy, but his way out of obscurity is built on suffering. At the same time, far away in a walled city by the sea, an old man discovers new worlds without ever setting foot outside his home. But all around him, impending danger closes in.

*** This book unexpectedly jumped way up in popularity after it was nominated for the National Book Award. Because of this, it is hard to get library copies in at the moment. If you need a copy of this book, we recommend calling us and getting on the waiting list for one of Argenta or Oreana's copies of the book.
