A spy, a socialite, and author Ariel Lawhon

    Bestselling author of “I Was Anastasia,” Ariel Lawhon’s new novel is a thrilling feat of historical fiction based on the real-life story of socialite and spy Nancy Wake, one of the most decorated women of WWII. Known for her ferocious wit and signature red lipstick, Nancy, an intrepid Australian reporter living in Paris, became one of the most powerful leaders of the French Resistance. Told in interweaving timelines organized around the four code names Nancy used during the war, “Code Name Hélène” is a spellbinding and moving story of enduring love, remarkable sacrifice and unfaltering resolve.
