The Diplomat’s Wife: A Novel

We rated this book:


“Bestselling author, Pam Jenoff, author of //The Lost Girls of Paris// and //The Ambassador’s Daughter//, again delivers with her novel //The Diplomat’s Wife//. The story of Marta Nederman began in //The Kommandant’s Girl// and concludes here with astounding consequences.
Marta has barely escaped the Nazi prison camps when she meets Paul, an American solider who has been part of the liberation of prisoners. They fall rashly and madly in love, but when Paul is shot down, Marta, alone and pregnant, is forced to make some tough decisions, including marrying a British diplomat. When the British government seeks her help in routing out a Communist spy, Marta becomes involved with far more than she bargained for.
This book is fast-paced from beginning to end, but also takes special care to invest the reader in the characters. Fast-paced where it matters, and takes its time where it needs to. Marta is a wonderful heroine, both strong and easy to identify with. Paul is the American solider we all want to have fallen in love with. And the intrigue never stops, making this an all-consuming, stay-up-well-past-your-bedtime read. “
