London, England 1943: Eleanor Trigg is in charge of training women to be radio operators, among other things for the French Resistance. Marie is recruited because of her knowledge of the French language. Marie faces many dangers, once placed on French soil.
New York 1946: Grace Healey, war widow cuts through Grand Central Station on her way to work. She notices a suitcase pushed under a bench. No one is around and thinking someone has lost it, Grace looks inside and finds photos of several young women with names written on them. Impulsively, she takes the photos. Who were these women? This sends Grace on a quest to find out who they were and what happened to them. ( )

This was a great story at the beginning but I felt it spiraling to unrealistic outcomes. ( )

While I enjoyed "The Lost Girls of Paris", I didn't like it as much as "The Orphan's Tale" by the same author. The start was slow and I almost gave up fairly early on, but I kept going. I am so glad I persevered because as the three stories converged the novel became far more interesting. I found the stories of the three women - Marie, Grace and Eleanor -intriguing and each time the novel move to another view point I was sorry to leave the previous one. These women were flawed and made some stupid choices/mistakes which frustrated me, especially Marie when she was in Occupied France. Also, the romances felt forced and weren't actually needed.

"The Lost Girls of Paris" was definitely not one of the best WWII novels I have ever read but, at the same time, it wasn't the worse either. An okay read. ( )

I first heard about the Special Operations Executive or SOE in a show on Netflix called "Churchill's Secret Agents: The New Recruits" just this past April. I think this is what drew me to this book. I think the author does a fair job in describing the training, but as the show didn't really talk about what happened in the field, I don't know how close it was to the truth, not that it matters in a fiction book. I may read one of the non-fiction books she recommends. ( )

Pacing was well-done, but the feel of the story could have been so much better. Almost ready like a YA novel. ( )
