The Lost Girls of Paris | Pam Jenoff
113 posts | 82 read | 7 reading | 161 to read
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 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 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 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.

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.

DebinHawaii I bought it of course... 💜 2mo

I thought that there would be more suspense in this one, but I still really enjoyed it. I found it especially interesting because I read the Maggie Hope series earlier this year and those books take place earlier in the war...

This book was solid. The characters and relationships were a little shallow and there were some inconsistencies but I really enjoyed learning about all the women who were involved in spying and circumventing the German's advance across Europe, specifically in France. As I was reading I thought, "This would be a really good movie."

I was really disappointed in this. I thought the main characters made some very silly decisions that ultimately cost lives. Also, things worked out very conveniently. I'm in the minority opinion though - feel free to check out my full review on Goodreads! https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2685968220

First of all, I love history! This book fed my historical addiction that has been silent for a few years. My first love was historical fiction fed by my wonderful Aunt Glenda. Anyway, this book! Three women across three time periods during WWII. The efforts made by women during that time, a time when we were not considered worth the same as men, was amazing. This book tells of the British women who ran the radios behind enemy lines. 👇🏼

Slajaunie It was a wonderful story of intrigue. The three women were amazing heroines in the story. Marie who operated the radio, Eleanor the head of the women‘s department, and Grace who picked up and finished the story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4mo

Wow okay so THIS is what I wanted from The Alice Network. So we get 3 povs, all of which are in different geography/time during or after WWII trying to solve wtf is going on with the radios and why are people missing. I highkey gasp cried the last quarter of the book with everything being tied together. All the povs are interesting and do such a good job of building tension. All the women are interesting and I LOVE the role of romances. SOLID 5 ⭐

💕💕💕 This is a story of exceptional, brave, and intelligent women who joined WWII as radio operators and spies. The story begins with the finding of an abandoned suitcase that contains pictures of 12 of the women. We then learn their stories and their roles in the war. And who abandoned the suitcase. It‘s heartwarming and heartbreaking, but oh so good! 5🌟 (It also make me want to read more historical fiction.)
