We made Pam Jenoffâs book Kommandantâs Girl  debut of the month last March and it was a great success, with this follow up she does not disappoint. Set again in the perils of the Second World War this is a subject the author has a passion about that shines through in her writing.

The Diplomat's Wife Synopsis

How have I been lucky enough to come here, to be alive, when so many others are not? I should have died... But I am here.

1945. Surviving the brutality of a Nazi prison camp, Marta Nederman is lucky to have escaped with her life. Recovering from the horror, she meets Paul, an American soldier who gives her hope of a happier future. But their plans to meet in London are dashed when Paul's plane crashes.

Devastated and pregnant, Marta marries Simon, a caring British Diplomat and glimpses the joy that home and family can bring. But her happiness is threatened when she learns of a communist spy in British intelligence, and that the one person who can expose the traitor is connected to her past...

In this dramatic follow-up to the bestselling Kommandant's Girl, Pam Jenoff writes of a time of uneasy peace and rising paranoia, when love and desperation could make liars of us all.
