All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr
This story takes place in Europe during WWII and centers largely on the German occupation of France. The author, who uses alternating glipses into several peoples' lives weaves a story with his characters, which are well developed and believable. He does this and yet manages to maintain a certain amount of mystery and suspense. You'll find yourself being "drawn in" as the individuals of the story are drawn together. As an added bonus, you'll also come away with a better understanding of this time in history. I highly recommend this book.
