International bestselling author

Through letters with a famous author, one French librarian tells her love story and describes the brutal Nazi occupation of her small coastal village.

Saint-Malo, France, August 1938. The German invasion has begun, and Jocelyn Ferrec – the guardian of the Saint Malo Library – clings to her husband, Antoine and to the priceless books under her care. But she and everything she holds dear are in danger as Germany encroaches upon every corner of the continent. Antoine is forced to the frontlines, and Jocelyn must contend with an illness that threatens her very life. Despite her fear and loneliness, Jocelyn will stop at nothing to protect the library – a museum to her beloved city’s rich literature and history After the French capitulation, life in Saint-Malo becomes a shade of what it once was. Residents try passive resistance, but the German commander ruthlessly purges part of the city’s library to destroy any potentially subversive writings. At great risk to herself, Jocelyn manages to hide some of the books while waiting to receive news from Antoine. She herself finds strength in loyal friends and their Resistance efforts, as well as in letters to an author whose work she admires. What unfolds in Jocelyn’s letters is a description of her mission: to protect the people of Saint-Malo and the books that bear witness to their humanity.
