The Lost Girls of Paris

This is a World War 2 story that is well worth reading.  It is set in Britain where Eleanor Trigg, based on a real person, recruits girls to become radio operators.  They will be deployed to occupied Europe to pass messages and intercept information to relay back to Britain.     Based on actual events, this is a compelling story.  The review below gives a clear description of the story. I listened to the audio and I liked it.

“A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. 1946, Manhattan. One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to work, Grace Healey finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Unable to resist her own curiosity, Grace opens the suitcase, where she discovers a dozen photographs—each of a different woman. In a moment of impulse, Grace takes the photographs and quickly leaves the station. Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to a leader of a network of female secret agents who were deployed out of London during the war. Twelve of these women were sent to Occupied Europe as couriers and radio operators to aid the resistance, but they never returned. Grace sets out to learn the truth. Vividly rendered and inspired by true events, author Pam Jenoff shines a light on the incredible heroics of the brave women of the war and weaves a mesmerizing tale of courage, sisterhood and the great strength of women to survive in the hardest of circumstances” Book Companion Reviewer
