    Loved this WWIi historical novel

    I had never read about the SOE, Special Operations Executive, who were secret communications agents sent into France with their special radios used to confuse the Germans. The author developed the characters and the plot that kept the reader engaged throughout the story. I look forward to reading more by this author, specifically The Orhans Tale, since I got the first chapter included with this book!

    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.

    Enjoyed immensely!

    Loved it! Kept me in suspense until the end. Really a great book, and historically authentic.

    Disappointing

    This is my second book by this author. I was so excited when I heard about this one that I listed as a priority and ordered a copy right away. Well... it’s very disappointing. The writing is not bad, but I did not find the story believable or exciting. The idea was good but not well developed. I was numb the whole time (perhaps that was my main problem - totally disconnected from the characters). I expected a lot more.
