Description

Three women. One daring mission.

1946. One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal, Grace Healey finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Inside is a dozen photographs—each of a different woman. Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to Eleanor Trigg, leader of a network of female secret agents 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.

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 mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valor and betrayal. In this riveting story inspired by true events, Pam Jenoff weaves a tale of courage, sisterhood and the great strength of women to survive in the hardest of circumstances.

Don’t miss Pam Jenoff’s new novel, Code Name Sapphire, a riveting tale of bravery and resistance during World War II.

  • I will read no more of this author’s books.

    The books are beautifully written…however life is too short to read that much sadness, violence, and horrors beyond words. It’s mostly fiction, yet don’t expect a happy ending.
  • Wonderful

    Great book
  • Good characters but plot details don’t add up

    Author does a great job developing the 3 main female characters so we care enough to keep reading. But plot details matter too, especially when writing about events as well known as those of WW2. Midway a character reports he lost a wife and 2 children but late in the story is described as being college aged “about twenty or so.” Most annoying is the way the 2 lead female characters act in ways that defy reason, especially in the second half of the book.
  • Well worth the read.

    This is a wonderful book with such memorable characters. An element of intrigue, lots of unpredictable encounters with unanticipated outcomes. Really enjoyed reading it and trying to figure out how all the facets of the story would come together.
  • Moronic

    This book is not for a person with even the slightest minutiae of intelligence. The ending contradicts the resolve of the characters who struggle throughout the story. Also, there are several details that are ignored in order to quickly end (thank god) the terrible pain the author was obviously in while she wrote this travesty.
  • One of my favorites!

    This was an interesting subject, but Jenoff’s plot points were implausible and handled in a sophomoric style.
