“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
“Pam Jenoff’s meticulous research and gorgeous historical world-building lift her books to must-buy status. An intriguing mystery and a captivating heroine make The Lost Girls of Paris a read to savor!” —Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network
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.

    Fascinating story. I LOVED The Orphan’s Tale, so I knew this would be really great also. Then learning that this story is based on actual people and true events makes the story even more fascinating. I loved it.

    I enjoyed the story and the narrators. A narrator can make or break an audio book, but this one used just the right inflection.

    Great read. I learned so many interesting things, highly recommended

  • Amy F.

    Great story of women on WW II. Enjoyed the historical setting and reality -didn’t try to sugarcoat war. Ending only weak point -too much trying to tie everything into neat package which wasn’t true of the rest if the story.

  • Teri D.

    Really fun, interesting, well-paced book. Unfortunately, I did not care for one narrator in particular. I understand why a certain tone was wanted, but phrasing was so off it was distracting. Sounded as though she was reading material for the first time

  • Karyn B.

    I did enjoy the book. I love that it had a historical background. The narrarators kept the book moving. I was a little disappointed at the ending.

  • Ellen V.

    Good story, although it took me more than halfway the book to finally accept the super annoying voices of Eleanor and Grace. Sorry to say, but Eleanor sounded like a call girl, and Grace's voice danced in all directions.

  • Bobbie F.

    Good story and good narration. The one fault was that the love story plot was weak and seemed exaggerated.

  • Cathy D.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I couldn’t stop listening to it. I liked the narrators. It was a wonderful story.

  • Adria K.

    I really enjoyed this story, but found a couple of the narrators irritating:(
