The Lost Girls of Paris – Staff Review – Maddy

The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff

In Manhattan 1946, Grace Healy finds an abandoned suitcase tucked under a bench at Grand Central Station on her way to work. Curious, she opens it to find a handful of photographs of different women hidden inside. The suitcase belonged to a woman named Eleanor Tripp who helped lead a network of female secret agents that were sent to infiltrate occupied Europe during World War Two but never made it home.

Switching between the narratives of Grace, Eleanor and Marie Jenoff reveals a story of espionage, mystery, comradery and deceit.

I really enjoyed the way the author wove the three womens’ narratives together to reveal a larger story. For readers who enjoy WWII era historical fiction, I would recommend the Lost Girls of Paris.
