Jane Healey is the bestselling author of several books of historical fiction including The Beantown Girls, a Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestseller. The Secret Stealers, a WWII spy thriller, was an Amazon First Reads Editor’s Pick, one of the New York Post’s Best New Books, a Historical Novel Society’s Editors’ Choice pick and was also on Frolic’s 25 Best Books of Spring 2021. Jane is also the host of Historical Happy Hour, a monthly webinar and podcast featuring premiere historical fiction authors and their latest novels.

The Secret Stealers is a flawlessly crafted and engrossing story of the unexpected ways in which war changes who we are. Once again, Healey gifts readers with her trademark characters: everyday women who prove themselves to be extraordinary—women so relatable, so endearing, and so brave that they jump off the page and into our hearts.
