"Suite Francaise" by "Irène Némirovsky, Sandra Smith (translator)
this book may need some work in the appendices, as they were hand-written, but 
the main text is almost flawless.  I marked it "good": because of the 
appendices, but this is an amazingly powerful book.  I really need to finish 
laundry instead of books now... I do have to have sheets to sleep on tonight!  
what follows is the synopsis of the book.
Irène Némirovsky was a famous author in France. Before her death in the German 
concentration camps, she wrote two parts of what was to be a five-part book.
Sixty years after her death, her daughters unearthed the notebooks in which 
these unfinished manuscripts lay dormant. These have been published, along
with appendices that contain Irène Némirovsky's notes on the book, as well as 
correspondence telling the fate of this author.

I have accepted a seat in the House of Representatives, and thereby have 
consented to my own ruin, to your ruin, and to the ruin of our children. I give
you this warning that you may prepare your mind for your fate.
