    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.

    Home run for author Pam Jenoff!

    Home run for author Pam Jenoff! Fabulously written and researched. I found myself savouring the story. I was caught up in not wanting to put the book down against ending the book too soon. I wanted the story to continue. What a frustrating dilemma! The characters are all fictional. There is a strong female friendship, intrigue and a bit a of romance and mystery. Overall, I appreciated the unique perspective on the WWII theme. “The Lost Girls of Paris” alternates between two time periods and two continents. The first occurs during World War II in London and Paris. The second in 1946, New York City. Grace is a recently widowed young lady who, while running late for work, witnesses a car accident. Following the accident, Grace stumbles across a suitcase at Grand Central Station that contains the photographs of 12 women. She discovers that the suitcase and photos belong to a deceased woman, Eleanor Trigg. Eleanor worked for the British Government during the war. Grace is very curious about the nature of the pictures and decides that she needs to know more about Eleanor, the suitcase and the photographs. This is where we dive into who really were “The lost girls of Paris”. I love historical novels. Pam Jenoff is a gifted writer who is able to convey history with a pleasant spoonful of sugar. I appreciated her unique perspective on this WWII theme. The author also recommends two other books to read: “Life in Secrets: Vera Atkins and the Missing Agents of WWII” by Sarah Helm, and “Spymistress: The True Story of the Greatest Female Secret Agent of WWII” by William Stevenson. Both of which are now on my TBR list. :)
