Episode 13: "Some Changes"

There's this week's episode, I hope you enjoy it!


I am now recording every TWO weeks now for more things to talk about and show you.

Reading:

I finished listening to Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. It was a really good audio book, so I highly suggest it. Here's the description from Goodreads.com:

"Tatiana de Rosnay offers us a brilliantly subtle, compelling portrait of France under occuptiom and reveals the taboos and silence that surround this painful episode.

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d;Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours.

Paris, May 2002: On Vel' d'Hiv's 60th anniversary, journalist Juila Jarmond is asked to write an article about this black day in France's past. Through her contemporary investigation, she stumbles onto a trail of long-hidden family secrets that connect her to Sarah. Juila finds herself compelled to retrace the girl's ordeal, from that terrible term in the Vel' d'Hiv', to the camps, and beyond. As she probes into Sarah's past, she begins to question her own place in France, and to reevaluate her marriage and her life."

I'm currently reading The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I'm liking it so far, I can see why so many liked it.
