The most acclaimed and beloved novel of the season, the instant national bestseller - "hauntingly beautiful" ("The New York Times"), "incandescent, luminous... enthralling" ("O, The Oprah Magazine").
Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris, and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure's reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. They carry with them what might be the museum's most valuable and dangerous jewel.
In a German town, an orphan named Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner's expertise wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the Resistance. Increasingly aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure's converge.
Anthony Doerr's "stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors" ("San Francisco Chronicle)" are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, "All the Light We Cannot See" is a "beautiful, daring, heartbreaking, oddly joyous novel" ("The Seattle Times").
