All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
This gripping story features a blind French girl and a young German orphan and how their lives intersect during the devastation of World War II. The writing is so evocative that the landscape of Europe is almost a character in and of itself. Doerr has done a masterful job of bringing this tumultuous era to life and giving the reader an insight into what the thought processes were likely like for those facing unfathomable choices while caught up in the machinery of war.
