The Lost Girls of Paris
The Lost Girls of Paris | Pam Jenoff
From the author of the runaway bestseller The Orphans Tale comes a remarkable story of friendship and courage centered around three women and a ring of female spies during World War II. 1946, Manhattan Grace Healy is rebuilding her life after losing her husband during the war. One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to work, she finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Unable to resist her own curiosity, Grace opens the suitcase, where she discovers a dozen photographseach 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 ring 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.

Although a work of fiction, The Lost Girls of Paris is loosely based on the admirable and courageous female British agents that played an active and important role in the Special Operations Executive during WWII. A wonderful read. Lovers of The Nightingale, From Sand and Ash, The Alice Network and All the Light We Cannot See will enjoy this.

The covers of my WWII historical fiction seem to depict a theme. This was a good one - women recruited in England to infiltrate France as unsuspecting radio operators - and just a few years later a woman in NYC resolving the mystery of who and why these women were.

Eggs Love these and I recommend to you 1mo
marleed @Eggs I borrowed The Huntress from the library and loved it. In fact, if I had to chose I might pick that one over The Alice Network. ...Just what is it about the ubiquitous backwards view on the covers of historical fiction? I feel like I have an unintended cover collection now and must keep adding to it! 1mo

The best way to finish a book is cuddled up with this little pup ❤️ I really really enjoyed this historical fiction book! It was written from three different points of view and the chapters rotated between the characters. I could not put it down and was curious to see how and when the stories would intertwine! I definitely need to read more by Pam Jenoff !!

This is the story of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) run by the British government to send spies into occupied European countries during WWII. Women were part of this network, putting their lives on the line, sending radio messages and sabotaging Axis maneuvers. I really enjoyed the first half of the book but found some of the plot of the second half to be far fetched. Interesting back story but didn‘t completely hit the mark for me.

I had high hopes for this one, but after a rather slow start and then a rush to the finish, it ultimately disappointed me. More fiction than historical, characters that were either hyper developed or under developed, and an ending that was very rushed & scattered. I was entertained, intrigued, and excited to learn about these female agents. Now I need to read their ACTUAL story.

I enjoyed this story of female insurgents in occupied France during World War II. The elements of romance were fairly sappy, but romance in general just doesn‘t blow my skirt up. I figured out the twist in advance of its reveal, but that in no way hampered my enjoyment of the book.

(This image has nothing to do with the book.)

Reading Pam Jeniffer is a guilty pleasure, but I do enjoy her books. I don‘t think is as as good as THE ORPHAN‘S TRAIN but if you enjoy historical fiction, you‘ll enjoy her new tale.

Eleanor Trigg has convinced the SOE to send women agents, primarily trained as radio operators, to help the French resistance prepare for the D-Day invasion. Their story, including their betrayal, is revealed following a traffic accident in 1946.

1946 Manhattan. About friendship and courage centered around 3 women and a ring of female secret agents during WWII. Grace Healy finds an abandoned suitcase at Grand Central Terminal with photos of woman who never returned home from the war. Grace is determined to find out what happened to them. Inspired by true events. Thought-provoking and captivating. Told from 3 POV. Jenoff shows how government barters with individual‘s lives. Recommended.

I was afraid this book wouldn‘t live up to the hype, but I‘m glad I gave it a try. It‘s a good addition to all of the WW2 novels that have come out in the last five years. The love story seemed to come out of nowhere, but other than that it was a good story.

#WanderingJune
In the tagged novel, a young widow in 1946 comes across a suitcase & inside are a stack of photos of twelve young women working as undercover agents to combat the Nazis & #LostInFrance & presumed captured & killed. This weekend "Carve Her Name with Pride" was a Kindle Deal & it's about real life heroine, Violette Szabo, one of the inspirations for the novel, who parachuted into Limoges & was later caught & executed by the Germans.
