The booklovers in Old Palm’s Ladies Book Club tend to read the latest, most thought-provoking novels and this month’s selection certainly fits the bill. It is Anthony Doerr’s award-winning “All the Light We Cannot See, an ambitious novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. The New York Times calls the book “as precise and artful and ingenious as the puzzle boxes the heroine’s locksmith father builds for her. Impressively, it is also a vastly entertaining feat of storytelling.” The Washington Post also praised the book as the best novel of 2014, describing it as “enthrallingly told, beautifully written and so emotionally plangent that some passages bring tears.” Ten years in the making, “All the Light We Cannot See” is one of the Idaho-based author’s finest books and a work of art that the Ladies Book Club has enthusiastically embraced.
