The Golden Doves - Martha Hall Kelly
The long-awaited sequel to the international bestseller Lilac Girls. Two former female spies risk everything to hunt down an infamous Nazi doctor.
Inspired by true events, The Golden Doves is an unforgettable story about the fates of the Nazi doctors in the wake of WWII, and the unsung females spies who risked it all to fight for justice.
As part of the French Resistance in Paris, Arlette LaRue and American Josie Anderson steal so many Nazi secrets they become known as the ‘Golden Doves’, renowned across France and hunted by the Gestapo.
Their courage costs them everything. When finally arrested, they and their loved ones are taken to the Ravensbrück concentration camp. There a reclusive Nazi doctor does appalling things to Josie’s mother, while Arlette’s baby son is stolen from her, never to be seen again.

The Doves embark on a quest across Europe and ultimately to South America, discovering a web of terrible secrets, and must put themselves in grave danger to finally secure justice and protect the ones they love.
