June 27, 2019 Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff

Presented by Kathy N.

There are some stories that are impossible to get out of your head once you’ve finished reading them. Pam Jenoff’s The Lost Girls of Paris is one of those stories. Told from three different perspectives across a couple of different timelines, The Lost Girls of Paris shines a light on the little-known experiences of British SOE agents who operated in Nazi-occupied areas during World War II. … Regardless of the accuracy of the events described in The Lost Girls of Paris, there’s no denying that this is a powerful novel of love, loss, and duty. The stories of these three fierce women are woven together beautifully and effortlessly. While some of the things they faced or uncovered were difficult to read, I had a hard time putting this book down…. If you’re a fan of stories of underappreciated women doing the unthinkable, novels set around World War II, or historical fiction, you’re bound to be enthralled by Pam Jenoff’s The Lost Girls of Paris. (From Hypable Review by Danielle Zimmerman Feb. 4, 2019)
