Description

Join us for a very special event as we celebrate the release of The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff. This afternoon reading is free, with Q&As and a book signing to follow.

After taking the world by storm with her compelling USA Today and New York Times bestseller, The Orphan’s Tale, Pam Jenoff returns with a story of bravery, intrigue and sisterhood in the Second World War. The Lost Girls of Paris investigates the forgotten history of a female spy ring whose agents changed the course of the war before disappearing, and the widowed American woman determined to uncover their fates.

Based on the Secret Operations Executive, this story shines a light on the much-overlooked role that women played in the Allied victory. The Lost Girls of Paris is a suspenseful read about the brutality of war, the scars left on its survivors and the tenacity of the human spirit.

Pam Jenoff's meticulous research and gorgeous historical world-building lift her books to must-buy status. Her latest interweaves the gritty World War II exploits of England's female spies with the post-war struggle of damaged survivors trying to build new lives in the fallout of tragedy. 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
