The Paris Housekeeper by Ryan
From the author of The Secret Society of Salzburg comes a riveting World War II novel of the heroism of a young Paris housekeeper who makes a gut-wrenching bargain to save the Jews hiding in her Nazi employer’s basement.

Despite her distrust of the woman, Camille desperately turns to Vivian when her friend and fellow hotel maid Rachel Berman needs help getting out of Paris. It’s then that Camille discovers that Vivian is not what she seems…. The American has been using her wealth and connections to secretly obtain travel papers for Jewish refugees.
Hiding in an underground bunker under a Nazi’s nose, a daring escape plan is hatched. But as the net grows tighter, and the Germans more ruthless, Camille’s courage will be tested to the extreme…
