There is overlap in content and some other issues when compared to the the 2018 book The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff. Not replication but clearly similar references to the actual women in WW2 were used or reviewed. This takes place during WW2 while the book refers back to these women in WW2 in 1946. See more »
