About the Author

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.
