Ehh, it was alright but so rushed. I know that the point of the series is to have short reads but none of the others that I have read so far felt like they had pacing issues like this.

When Noa is found near frozen to death with a Jewish infant in her arms, Astrid, an aerialist in the circus, and her troupe take them in. To earn her keep and a safe haven for baby Theo, Noa is put to work on the trapeze. As the ‘catcher’ for Noa, Astrid insists no secrets be kept between them. But Noa is set on holding her past close to the vest while Astrid, a Jew and the former wife of a Reich officer, is also living a lie.

As the Nazi hold tightens in France, the circus is in peril of crumbling and the secrets of the past threaten to surface. When a fire races through the big top, split decisions must be made and only one of the aerialists will survive.

While not biographical there are a lot of truths woven into Pam Jenof’s, The Orphan’s Tale. She has done an excellent job researching the time, the circus, and some wonderful characters that lived at that time.

Given our climate, this is a good reminder to keep the past alive.

The Lost Girls of Paris is a historical fiction about the SOE; a British intelligence group of female operatives who, through unthinkable circumstances of betrayal by their own, nearly all do not survive to come home.

The question I ask myself while reading this book, written about a subject I love, WW2, women, and their fight to make a difference in a male dominant world, is why didn't this book resonate better for me; the simple answer is depth. I wanted more mire and muck, gut-wrenching, heart-stopping, fear-inducing depth. The Lost Girls did not have that for me, yet it seemed teed up to give it.

The second question I ask myself: When did I become such a cynic?

This is a marvelously written book with beautiful characters and believable settings (it is fictitious, after all), and I did enjoy the book. I would be remiss if I gave it anything less than the most stars available, although I would bump it down if there were a half. It was a home run but fell short of a grand slam.

I will read another of Ms. Jenoff's books, and she deserves your try as well - the book is worth it.

A dishonest,reckless depiction of the events of the Holocaust. The author takes historical fact and turns it into an adventure and story of romance. It is very unsettling that a book this popular will tell people an incorrect representation of what really happened. The author should feel ashamed.
