From the celebrated author of The Orphan’s Tale
Manhattan, 1946: Grace Healy is rebuilding her life after losing her husband in the war. One morning, at Grand Central Terminal, she finds an abandoned suitcase. Unable to resist her curiosity, Grace discovers a dozen photographs—each of a different woman.
Grace learns that the suitcase belonged to Eleanor Trigg, leader of a ring of female secret agents deployed from London during the war. Twelve were sent to Occupied Europe as couriers and radio operators to aid the resistance, but they never returned. Setting out to learn the truth, Grace is drawn to a young mother-turned-agent named Marie, whose daring mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valor, and betrayal in this mesmerizing tale inspired by true events.
