The personal story of Marie-Laure connects with the Nazi’s issue in Paris and then both go along. Marie’s mother died when she was a child and now she is six years of age living with her father who works in a museum.

Together the two were living a happy life when tragedy struck their home and Marie became blind. Father and daughter try to rebuild their life; the father makes a model of the whole area so that his daughter can understand the path well after touching the model.


Life comes back to routine after a couple of months and then the second chaos strikes. Nazi forces take over the town and the family runs towards Saint-Malo with the precious jewel that was locked in the museum. There at Saint-Malo, Marie takes shelter in her uncle’s house which is located near the seashore. After these incidents, Anthony Doerr takes us to the second dominating character in the story i.e Werner. Werner had no proper family, he only had one sister, and their parents were not known.

From his youth, Werner was an intelligent boy because of which he was taken in by Hitler’s army. When the training was complete the forces gave Werner his first assignment to track down the resistance which is working in a hidden way against the Nazis. Analyzing the footprints the boy reached Saint-Malo where he met Marie for the first time and they felt bound with each other. Zach Appelman has narrated love and war scenes together which is always tough for the narrator. But Zach has done justice with both tasks on all levels.
