Women On The Move: Pam Jenoff, "Code Name Sapphire"

REGISTER

After exploring the agonizing challenges of ordinary women trapped in the nightmare of Nazi Germany in earlier novels, Pam Jenoff returns to that theme with Code Name Sapphire, the tale of a young woman thwarted in her attempt to escape Europe who becomes caught up with a secret resistance network. When her family is arrested and slated for deportation to Auschwitz, she faces the wrenching dilemma of how much she can sacrifice to save the people she loves. This powerful novel about resilience and family was inspired by true stories of courage and sacrifice.

With a rich and varied career at the Pentagon, as a U.S. diplomat in Poland and as a labor and employment attorney, Pam Jenoff now teaches in the law school at Rutgers. In her other life, she is the New York Times bestselling author of 12 works of historical fiction, including The Lost Girls of Paris and The Orphans Tale.
