’All the Light We Cannot See’

When Marie Laure goes blind aged six, her father builds her a model of their Paris neighborhood so she can memorize it with her fingers and then navigate the real streets. But when the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, is enchanted by a crude radio. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent later used as a tracker of the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another.
