This novel tells the story of Marie-Laure (French) and Werner (German), both of whom are stuck in a war that is not theirs. When the Second World War breaks out, the blind Marie-Laure and her father flee to the coastal city of St Malo, carrying a big and dangerous secret with them. Meanwhile, the orphaned Werner has an important choice to make as the only way for him to attain a better life than his parents is to join the German army. Both children are forced to grow up in a world that is being devastated and where all they are trying to do is survive. ‘All the Light We Cannot See’ is a deeply moving story that explores the ability of people to do good even when all hope seems to be lost.
