I bypassed this book originally because I have had my fill of World War II books, but decided to read it when I heard the rumor (false), that the author is related to writer Harriet Doerr. I’m glad I changed my mind! All the Light We Cannot See weaves together interesting characters, a captivating plot, beautifully rendered settings, a lyrical writing style and multiple layers of metaphor and meaning into an imminently readable and unforgettable novel.
