In haunting ways, this gorgeous novel prefigures Irène Némirovsky’s masterpiece <i>Suite Française</i>. Set in France between 1910 and 1940 and first published in France in 1947, five years after the author’s death, <i>All Our Worldly Goods </i>is a gripping story of war, family life and star-crossed lovers. Pierre and Agnes marry for love against the wishes of his parents and his grandfather, the tyrannical family patriarch. Their marriage provokes a family feud that cascades down the generations. This brilliant novel is full of drama, heartbreak, and the telling observations that have made Némirovsky’s work so beloved and admired.
