FoC 042: Hidden Grace and All The Light We Cannot See

 

ep42allthelight

For our latest book club selection we chose the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See.

It’s an amazing tale of World War II interweaving the lives of  a blind French girl and a brilliant German boy who grows up within the Nazi regime.

In circumstances of survival we see beauty, love, and grace shine through. We talk about redemption, sacrifice, standing up for one’s conscience, and the hidden workings of grace in our lives. We had a great time discussing this novel that really sinks into your soul and stays with you.

  1. Oh, I can’t wait to listen to this podcast! I have no friends to talk about this book with, so glad I can listen in on conversation.

  2. I definitely thought about ‘Wait Until Dark’ too during the scene you mentioned, Christy. Creepy movie, creepy scene.

    Also loved Doerr’s memoir from Rome. I just purchased a copy of a collection of his short stories called ‘Memory Wall’. I think I’m addicted to his writing, so I hope he’s working on something new! 😉
