THE RACE FOR PARIS by Meg Waite Clayton

ABOVE THE WATERFALL by Ron Rash

This most ambitious novel yet by bestselling author Meg Waite Clayton was inspired by the actual “Race for Paris” and the extraordinary women who were some of the first journalists to report from the liberated city in August 1944. For the readers of historical fiction with strong female characters such as The Paris Wife and Nancy Horan’s Loving Frank, the story itself is reminiscent of the classic World War Two era film Julia.
