From USA Today bestselling author A.W. Hartoin comes a series perfect for the fans of Pam Jenoff's The Lost Girls of Paris: A Novel, Martha Hall Kelly’s Lilac Girls, and Kit Sergeant’s The Spark of Resistance: Women Spies in WWII.
On the eve of WWII, a honeymoon turns treacherous.
For young Stella Bled Lawrence being wealthy and stylish in 1938 is exactly what it's cracked up to be. She's blissfully unaware of the rising tensions in Europe even as she travels to Vienna on the eve of the Kristallnacht, The Night of Broken Glass, Hitler’s first large-scale action against the Jews of Germany and Austria.
Stella and her husband, Nicky, witness the night's atrocities first hand. Even as they watch the horror, they never imagine it will touch them personally, a pair of wealthy Americans on their honeymoon but touch them it does. In the chaotic aftermath, Stella finds passion and purpose in the form of a package with a Paris address. She promises to deliver it, not knowing what it contains or who wants it. Soon Stella must decide who and what she's willing to sacrifice to keep a secret that has been quietly guarded for five hundred years.
The Paris Package
Fast moving, well written, historic novel. I couldn’t put it down. I would recommend this to everyone with an interest in WWI.
Read it if you have nothing better to do.
How exciting and frightening a journey!
Stella was rich and pampered . How could she run from the Nazi pursuers ? But, she did and did things she didn’t think possible for herself. I enjoyed her successes and trembled at her fears just as she did.
