All Our Worldly Goods - Irene Nemirovsky A beautiful, simply-told story of love, family, and the human instinct of survival in even the worst situations. Caught up in the devastations of history, these characters love so fiercely because it's the best, if not only, way they know how to survive. Némirovsky's work is shattering and heartbreaking, a beautiful voice cut off far too soon in Auschwitz.
