    Brilliant WWII tale

    The Lost Girls of Paris Pam Jenoff Jenoff’s (The Orphan’s Tale) latest WWII story is historical realism based on true events, a time capsule that should never be forgotten where evil and good reigned side by side and sometimes those lines were crossed in the name of war. The Lost Girls of Paris is tragic, poignant and reflects the bravery of everyday ordinary citizens fighting to end the tyranny promised by the Nazi regime giving readers a birds-eye-view of real women SEO agents sent into harms way. But Pam does something special she not only gives them voices she also gives them heart and makes them more real. The solid gritty plot, fluent dialogue, unforgettable characters and arresting backdrops make this a must read for any fan of WWII, historical or fantastic literary fiction. 1946 New York City – When Grace Healey finds an envelope full of women’s photos in an abandoned suitcase in Grand Central Station and later learns the owner of the suitcase, a British woman was tragically hit and killed by a car curiosity has her seeking information into who these strangers in the photos were. Little does she know she’d be opening a Pandora’s box full of British wartime secrets. London, 1943 - Eleanor Trigg, secretary to the director of the covert British intelligence agency, Special Operative Executive (SOE), an illegitimate cousin to MI-6 never would have believed she’d suggest sending women into occupied France to aid the resistance when their male operatives kept disappearing and she sure never would have believed she’d be running it. But that’s exactly what she’s doing, training and preparing these girls to fight the enemy by transmitting messages out right under the Nazis noses, knowing if they’re caught they’d face torture and death and hoping she’s doing the right thing.

    How bad is bad ?

    To review this novel would be pointless. I will simply list errors in research and editing . - Librairie des Marne - bought a rasher of bacon for the group meal - enchanté ( girl talking ) - the French countyside is described as “ dotted with red roofs and chateaux “ ( not as seen from a plane ) - jetted from NYC to Washington ( metaphorically in 1947) - Bletchley seemed to be well known to typists in a British ministry . - Heroine called le petit ( little one ) - Romeo embresse Juliette - Protagonist enters a cathedral in the Latin Quarter - shuttered streets of North London ( Brits don’t do shutters , now or then ) - book title by Baudelaire .... Fleurs du mal - The description of Dachau does not ring true . The SS barracks are adjacent to the camp , not half a mile away . - and a funny description of a rail car on its way to a concentration camp .” The air reeked of toilet smells “

    What rubbish.

    Historical fiction is a stretch... So trite and full of banal cliché I cringed in shame thinking of anyone who'd actually experienced the horror of WWII ever reading this book. I'll be much more wary of Kobo suggestions in the future.

    Great Mystery & Thrills

    The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff is Historical Thriller Fiction set in World War II and just after. I loved this book as I have every book Pam Jenoff has written. The characters and settings are well written, the reader is immediately drawn into their world and lives. This book has non stop action, thrills, tragedy, mystery and love. The girls work in conjunction with various groups and citizens to thwart the Nazi forces.. It is a story of their strength, bravery, hardships and sorrows that they endured. I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. My thanks to the author, the publisher and netgalley for the privilege to read, review and enjoy this book.
