I'm glad you posted about this! I have Fire in the Sky on my wishlist, but I didn't realize that she had a total of 13 books in print. I'm definitely going to look for them. I loved Suite Francais, but it was so incredibly sad to find out at the end of the book that Irene meant for Suite Francaise to be the first book in a series and was unable to write the others because she was sent to a Nazi camp. Her death was a tremendous loss for everyone and also a loss for literature. It's great that Irene's daughter was able to bring her books back for the world to enjoy.
