Jeff’s Book Pics By Jeff Brown


From the author of the runaway bestseller The Orphan’s Tale comes a remarkable story of 
friendship and courage centered around three women and a ring of female spies during 
World War II.1946, Manhattan. Grace Healey is rebuilding her life after losing her husband 
during the war. One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way 
to work, she 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 woman named Eleanor Trigg, leader 
of a ring 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 home, their fates a mystery. Setting out to learn the truth 
behind the women in the photographs, Grace finds herself drawn to a young mother turned 
agent named Marie, whose daring mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, 
valor and betrayal.Vividly rendered and inspired by true events, New York Times bestselling 
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.
