I read Sarah's Key last winter and went to see the film yesterday. It was excellent! Even though the book is fictional, it is based on a sad, dark time in Paris in the 1940's. The story is very moving and the acting is superb! Be sure you take your tissues!
And, I had quite a once in a lifetime (I hope) experience today. The state of Virginia experienced the largest earthquake since the 1800's. I was dusting in my dining room and every piece of china in the cabinet started to rattle. At first I thought it was a large plane since I'm not far from a major airport. But I soon realized what was happening. It actually felt like my house was moving. There were no injuries or major damages in my area. However. the epicenter was about 50 miles away and there were damages reported in that county but no major injuries. Several historic brick structures were damaged significantly.
