About the event
MEG WAITE CLAYTON is the New York Times bestselling author of eight novels, and the National Jewish Book Award finalist for The Last Train to London (released in 20 languages).
In this sweeping tale of romance and danger set in a world aflame, Clayton revisits the dark early days of the German occupation - a tale of high-stakes and incomparable courage about a young American heiress who helps artists hunted by the Nazis escape from war-torn Europe. Inspired by the real heiress, Mary Jayne Gold, who worked with Varian Fry to smuggle artists and intellectuals out of France.
