The Postmistress of Paris
New York Times bestselling author Meg Waite Clayton, revisits the dark early days of the German occupation in France in the haunting novel, The Postmistress of Paris.
Wealthy, beautiful Naneé was born with a spirit of adventure that transcends her Midwestern roots. For her, learning to fly is freedom. When German tanks roll across the border and into Paris, this woman with an adorable dog and a generous heart joins the resistance. Known as the Postmistress because she delivers information to those in hiding, Naneé uses her charms and skill to house the hunted and deliver them to safety.
Inspired by the real life Chicago heiress Mary Jayne Gold, who worked with American journalist Varian Fry to smuggle artists and intellectuals out of France, Meg Waite Clayton has fashioned a sweeping tale of romance and danger, set in a world aflame with personal and political passion. The Postmistress of Paris is the haunting story of an indomitable woman whose strength, bravery, and love is a beacon of hope in a time of terror.
Meg Waite Clayton is the New York Times bestselling author of eight novels, including the National Jewish Book Award finalist The Last Train to London. A graduate of the University of Michigan law school, Meg’s short works have appeared in major newspapers and on public radio.
