"All the Light There Was offers a vivid picture of life for a minority family in occupied Paris, and author Kricorian effortlessly takes the reader from one year to the next….A pleasure to read."
—Historical Novel Society
"Beautifully conjured… Kricorian’s touch is light, but the residual impact of war is nonetheless palpable."
—Eleanor J. Bader, In These Times
"Immersive as quicksand."
—Portland Book Review
"Moving. . . With a bittersweet love story, examples of everyday heroism, and a community refusing to give in to tyrants, Kricorian's work sheds even more light on the German occupation of France."
"The first-person narrative nails the blend of daily detail and political history. . . . An important addition to the WWII fiction shelves, this is bound to spark discussion."
"Love blooms just as war tears two people apart…Kricorian’s rendering makes good on its promise of drama [and]….her heroine’s resilience is exciting."—The New York Times
"Nancy Kricorian is a gem, her work subtle and nuanced and moving. All the Light There Was brings Nazi-occupied Paris vividly, tragically, and heroically to life."
—Chris Bohjalian, author of The Sandcastle Girls and Midwives
