Summary
  • "Set in France and America, News of Our Loved Ones is a haunting and intimate examination of love and loss, beauty and the cost of survival, witnessed through two generations of one French family, whose lives are all touched by the tragic events surrounding the D-Day bombings in Normandy"--
  • June, 1944. Over four long years the Delasalle family has struggled to live in their Nazi occupied village in Normandy, silently watching as their Jewish neighbors were arrested or disappeared. For Yvonne, thoughts of the war recede when she sees the red-haired boy bicycle past her window each afternoon. Her sister, Geneviève, is in Paris to audition for the National Conservatory. Decades later, Geneviève, the wife of an American musician, travels from the US to her homeland with her children, so that they may know their French family. -- adapted from back cover
