Product description

Review

Wonderfully compelling… The story grips from the very first page, and the atmosphere of the circus is entrancing – you feel all the terror and thrill of the flying trapeze.’ – Margaret Leroy, author of The Soldier’s Wife

‘Secrets, lies, treachery, and passion…I read this novel in a headlong rush.’ – Christina Barker Kline, #1 bestselling author of Orphan Train

‘A thrilling, yet heart-breaking story of life and love, heroism and sacrifice in wartime Europe’ – My Weekly

‘This is a book not to be missed’ – Melanie Benjamin, bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue and The Aviator’s Wife

‘Jenoff has written a tribute to the human spirit that soars in the midst of epic despair…’–NPR

‘Jenoff’s prose is evocative and compelling’–The Globe and Mail

“An emotional tale of survival and courage during a difficult time in Europe.” – Suzy Approved Book Reviews

“Jenoff keeps readers on their toes with the numerous twists and turns… as well as the emotional peaks and valleys that had me reaching for tissues more than once.” – Romance Dish

“THE ORPHAN’S TALE takes us on a heartbreaking, hopeful, touching and emotional journey; one that is not to be missed.” – Jennifer Blankfein

About the Author

Pam was born in Maryland and raised in southern New Jersey, outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She attended George Washington University in Washington D.C., where she earned a bachelor's degree magna cum laude in international affairs, with minors in history and Japanese. She then received her master's in history from Cambridge University in England.

After Cambridge, Pam accepted an appointment as special assistant to the secretary of the army. The position provided a unique opportunity to witness and participate in operations at the most senior levels of government, including helping the families of the Pan Am Flight 103 victims secure their memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, observing recovery efforts at the site of the Oklahoma City bombings and attending ceremonies to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of World War II at sites such as Bastogne, Belgium and Corregidor in the Philippines.

Following her work at the Pentagon, Pam then became a foreign service officer with the State Department and was assigned to the U.S. consulate in Krakow, Poland, for more than two years. It was during this period that Pam developed her expertise in Polish-Jewish relations and the Holocaust by working on matters such as preservation of Auschwitz and the restitution of Jewish property in Poland and developing close relations with the surviving Jewish community. Pam remains involved in Polish-Jewish issues by publishing articles and serving as an advisor to various organizations

Having left the foreign service in 1998 to attend law school at the University of Pennsylvania, Pam now lives in Philadelphia where she works as an attorney. She has done extensive pro bono and civic work focusing on at-risk youth, hunger relief and homelessness. When not writing novels or practicing law, Pam enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going to the beach, cheering on her Philadelphia Eagles, reading, traveling and participating in running and other sports (she is a second-degree black belt in karate)

The Kommandant's Girl was her first novel.
