All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.

It is set in St Malo, France during the occupation by Germany in WW2. It tells the story of a little blind girl whose father has been entrusted with a jewel from the National Museum. This is being sought by one of the Nazi curators. At the same time the story of a brilliant young German boy unfolds. It tells of his experiences at an elite school and eventually of the army and his mission in France. The story is exciting and moving and is beautifully written.
