I am such a sucker for historical fiction set during the World Wars, so I was eager to add The Lost Girls of Paris to my collection. When we think about the war, the critical role women played is often overshadowed. Similar to The Nightingale and The Fire by Night, The Lost Girls of Paris focuses on the female role during this time period, specifically British secret agents who served in France. The fact that it is inspired by true events makes it even more important. These are not contrived stories, these are the real events that women went through to help win the war. The entire book seems incredibly well researched, and I think that the author, Pam Jenoff, took the time to make the story accurate and to give the characters real life. It's a powerful story of courage and I am happy to add it to my shelf of impressive historical fiction.
