Wow!! This book did not turn out the way I thought it would. A small girl lives in a french town during WWII. It goes back and forth between then and now. She tells the story through the use of food, and describes each moment with such reality that I could see and feel it all. I could not put it down!!

I liked it, but did not love it. I found it to drag a bit in the middle, and then rush at the end. good story, interesting characters.

This book really captures a sense of "place" (small village in the French countryside during Nazi occupation) with wonderful, detailed descriptions. The characters are unique (very French, I'll leave it at that) and the story is fascinating and surprising. Oh, and the food sounds fabulous and really contributes to the emotion of the story.

Good reading with interesting plot and character studies...seemed to go on a little too long, so I was losing interest.

I enjoyed the story and found myself interested in the characters. I felt a little disappointed by the ending. I guess I wanted more payback for the antagonists. I admit, that wasn't really the way of the book.
