The Lost Girls of Paris Pam Jenoff read online review & book description:

A New York Times Bestseller

“Fraught with danger, filled with mystery, and meticulously researched, The Lost Girls of Paris is a fascinating tale of the hidden women who helped to win the war.” —Lisa Wingate, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours

From the author of the runaway bestseller The Orphan’s Tale comes a remarkable story of friendship and courage centered around three women and a ring of female secret agents during World War II.

1946, Manhattan

One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to work, Grace Healey finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Unable to resist her own curiosity, Grace opens the suitcase, where she discovers a dozen photographs—each of a different woman. In a moment of impulse, Grace takes the photographs and quickly leaves the station.

Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to a woman named Eleanor Trigg, leader of a network of female secret agents who were deployed out of London during the war. Twelve of these women were sent to Occupied Europe as couriers and radio operators to aid the resistance, but they never returned home, their fates a mystery. Setting out to learn the truth behind the women in the photographs, Grace finds herself drawn to a young mother turned agent named Marie, whose daring mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valor and betrayal.

Vividly rendered and inspired by true events, New York Times bestselling author Pam Jenoff shines a light on the incredible heroics of the brave women of the war and weaves a mesmerizing tale of courage, sisterhood and the great strength of women to survive in the hardest of circumstances.

    The books are beautifully written…however life is too short to read that much sadness, violence, and horrors beyond words. It’s mostly fiction, yet don’t expect a happy ending.

    Great book
  • Good characters but plot details don’t add up

    Author does a great job developing the 3 main female characters so we care enough to keep reading. But plot details matter too, especially when writing about events as well known as those of WW2. Midway a character reports he lost a wife and 2 children but late in the story is described as being college aged “about twenty or so.” Most annoying is the way the 2 lead female characters act in ways that defy reason, especially in the second half of the book.
  • Well worth the read.

    This is a wonderful book with such memorable characters. An element of intrigue, lots of unpredictable encounters with unanticipated outcomes. Really enjoyed reading it and trying to figure out how all the facets of the story would come together.
  • Moronic

    This book is not for a person with even the slightest minutiae of intelligence. The ending contradicts the resolve of the characters who struggle throughout the story. Also, there are several details that are ignored in order to quickly end (thank god) the terrible pain the author was obviously in while she wrote this travesty.
  • One of my favorites!

    This was an interesting subject, but Jenoff’s plot points were implausible and handled in a sophomoric style.
