Odette's Secrets

Odette's Secrets

Maryann Macdonald


Odette is a tender Jewish woman residing in Paris in the course of a perilous time. The Nazis have invaded the town, and each day brings new threats. After Odette's father enlists within the French military and her mom joins the Resistance, Odette is shipped to the nation-state until eventually it's secure to return.

On the outside, she leads the lifetime of a customary girl―going to college, doing chores, or even attending Catholic Mass with different young children. yet inside of, she is burning with secrets and techniques in regards to the lifestyles she left in the back of and her actual identity.

Inspired by way of the lifetime of the genuine Odette Meyers―and written in relocating free-verse poetry―this is a narrative of braveness, of decision to outlive, and of a tender woman pressured to conceal in simple sight.
