Summary

From the internationally best-selling author Pam Jenoff, The Lost Girls of Paris is an emotional and powerful journey through friendship and betrayal during the Second World War, inspired by true events.

1940s. With the world at war, Eleanor Trigg leads a mysterious ring of female secret agents in London. Twelve of these women are sent to aid the resistance.

They never return home.

1946. Passing through Grand Central Station, Grace Healey finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. The case is filled with a dozen photographs, each of a different woman.

Setting out to find the women behind the pictures, Grace is drawn into the mystery of the lost girls of Paris. And as she delves deeper into the secrets of the past, she uncovers a story of fierce friendship, unthinkable bravery and, ultimately, the worst kind of betrayal.

Strange American Accent

I normally prefer books read in English rather than American but the trailer for this is in English so I bought it. It's an excellent story and the British English parts nicely read but I found the American reader's accent false, almost like she'd started in the wrong key and had to continue.

All drama, no build up

This book was on my wish list and I bought on offer so less than £3. Glad because although I didn't dislike the book I felt like it was missing something, the character development was lacking and it felt like there was always tension and excitement without enough to explain why they cared about each other etc. Starting to wonder if I dozed off for great chunks!!

Excellent

My only issue was Grace , her accent and voice was hard at times to listen to . All the other characters were fabulous.

Riveting listen

A fantastic and believable story. The characters are well defined and distinct. The setting for the story was not something I was familiar with,although I had heard of SOE I didn’t appreciate the work that was done. It also begs lots of questions about the aftermath of war and price paid by so many that were involved. My only criticism is of the narration, in particular the terrible Irish or was it Welsh or maybe Mancunian accents that changed at times mid sentence. That aside a fabulous listen. Highly recommended.
