From the New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan's Tale
How have I been lucky enough to come here, to be alive, when so many others are not? I should have died . But I am here.
1945. Surviving the brutality of a Nazi prison camp, Marta Nederman is lucky to have escaped with her life. Recovering from the horror, she meets Paul, an American soldier who gives her hope of a happier future. But their plans to meet in London are dashed when Paul's plane crashes.
Devastated and pregnant, Marta marries Simon, a caring British diplomat, and glimpses the joy that home and family can bring. But her happiness is threatened when she learns of a Communist spy in British intelligence, and that the one person who can expose the traitor is connected to her past.
If there were a story about empowered women, Pam Jenoff would certainly be a great example. She was born in Maryland and grew up outside of Philadelphia. She went to Cherokee High School, George Washington University, Cambridge University, and University of Pennsylvania. Her university work garnered her a Master's Degree in history and a Juris Doctorate Degree in Law. After receiving her master's, she accepted an appointment as Special Assistant to the Army, where she observed and participated in special operations at the highest levels of government. Some of those included......helping secure a memorial for Pan Am 103 victims at Arlington Cemetery, observing recovery efforts at the Oklahoma City bombing, and attending the ceremonies to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of WW II at European sites. Pam then moved to the State Department, after which she was assigned to the U.S. Consulate in Krakow, Poland. She developed close relations with the surviving Jewish community.
In 1996, she went to law school, and now teaches at Rutgers University. She is also the author of The Kommandant's Girl, The Winter Guest, The Diplomat's Wife, The Ambassador's Daughter, Almost Home, A Hidden Affair, The Things We Cherished, and her most recent work, The Other Girl. Pam is a resident of Haddonfield, New Jersey with her husband and three children.
