"An evocative love story layered with heroism and intrigue the film Casablanca if Rick had an artsy bent powerful. San Francisco Chronicle "A sweeping tale of perseverance and courage set against the backdrop of Nazi-era Europe, The Postmistress of Paris is the very best kind of historical fiction: a complex and intriguing story that both highlights a little-known moment in the past and resonates powerfully in the present, reminding us that bigotry can only be vanquished when people are willing to take a stand. Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train "I loved The Postmistress of Paris, a novel of so many layers - a suspense story, a love story, and a story about the purpose of art. Meg Waite Clayton is a brilliant and deft writer, and I rooted for her strong, witty and brave heroine on her pulse-pounding mission to save Jewish painters, intellectuals, and a motherless child from Vichy France." Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of Eternal "Widely esteemed for her previous World War II novels, Meg Waite Clayton triumphantly returns with The Postmistress of Paris, a story of one womans heroic quest to help the forgotten in Occupied France. Claytons immaculately researched and beautifully written tale of passage and courage and heart is her best work yet." Pam Jenoff, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Woman With The Blue Star The work of an unsung heroine rises from the pages of The Postmistress of Paris. Meg Waite Clayton draws a vivid contrast between the beauty of art and the brutality of war, the power of humanity and the human cost of cruelty, greed, and prejudice. With a heart-stopping flight across war-torn Europe, this is a story readers of historical fiction and strong female characters will devour. Lisa Wingate, # 1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Before We Were Yours Clayton expertly renders the story of a courageous American womans role in the French Resistance during WWII. . . . Claytons lyrical, thought-provoking prose breathes life into her characters. This sterling portrait of a complex woman stands head and shoulders above most contemporary WWII fiction. Publishers Weekly (starred review) This gripping historical love story from Clayton brings readers into the courageous lives of those struggling just to stay alive and those risking everything to help. Booklist "Fans of Kate Quinn and Kristin Hannah will want to dive right into The Postmistress of Paris." BookPage A true gem . . . and a testament to the power of good. Portia Kapraun, Library Journal (starred review)
