Wow! Another great historical fiction novel by Pam Jenoff.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me a copy of this book.

The Lost Girls of Paris takes you inside the lives of young women who are placed as secret agents out in occupied Europe during WWII. These women, based on real-life women who were SOE's in WWII, put their lives in danger as they work as radio operators situated right in the guts of the war.

The story is told in two timelines: 1944 and 1946 when a suitcase with mysterious photos of women is found after the war ends, which gives us a glimpse into life right after the war.

I'm so impressed by the research done on this book and highly recommend it to readers of HF who love stories about strong women!

I'm a historical fiction junkie and one of the many things I love about reading WWII fiction books is being enlightened about things that really happened during the war that we never learned in school.

In this book, it's no different. I had no idea the circus played a part during the war in helping to hide people. I've read other books by this author and have loved every one of them. Her characters are real, flawed, and written so that we care what happens to them.

Of course, this book is filled with much heartache, but it also reflects the resiliency of the human spirit and the goodness in most people who go far beyond their duty to help each other in times of need.

Another great Pam Jenoff novel!

A great read! I find myself reading many books now on WWII, and the effect it had on the people during the war. This was a terrific book, told in a way that made me really feel I was a part of Helena and Ruth's experiences (which were many times horrible!) Very insightful novel, and as with many other WWII stories, I wonder how anyone made it out alive. It shows the strength of the human spirit.
