The Lost Orphan (Paperback)Pam Weaver (author)
December 1941: Evacuated from the threat of German bombs, sisters Amelie and Mireille have grown up under the storm clouds of war.
Now they have joined the fight against Hitler, with Amelie training as a nurse to save wounded soldiers, and Mireille enlisted to help the Air Force wage war in the skies over Europe.
But as each sister fights for peace, they are still haunted by the memory of their missing sister who was snatched away from them at the beginning of the war.
As Mireille is recruited for a special forces role behind enemy lines in France, she puts her life on the line for the Allies. But could she also finally have a chance of reuniting her sisters, once the war is over?
A heart-breaking tale of the bond between sisters and the courage of women in wartime. Perfect for fans of Shirley Dickson, Glynis Peters and Pam Jenoff.
