    Thank you for your review of 21 rue La Boétie. I am unable to read French so I really appreciate your assistance. The recovery of looted Jewish art is at least something. So much was lost that can’t be recovered. Thank you again.

    Dear Mrs Dorothea Shefer-Vanson
    I am so enjoying your book, I realize that we must have grown up in the same part of the world and at about the same time, as your novel is full of memories, just like mine.
    Looking forward to your new book.
    Best regards
    Brenda Godrey (Lyons)
