She holds a degree in international affairs from George Washington University and a degree in history from Cambridge, and she received her JD from UPenn.

She lives with her husband and 3 children near Philadelphia, where she teaches law.


"Secrets, lies, treachery, and passion... I read this novel in a headlong rush." --Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train

"[A] heartbreaking and breathtaking story.... Jenoff's prose is evocative and compelling." --The Globe and Mail "Christina Baker Kline's Orphan Train has collided with the circus caravan from Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants.... Jenoff has written a tribute to the human spirit that soars in the midst of epic despair." --NPR "Readers who enjoyed Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale and Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants will embrace this novel." --Library Journal "Beautiful, ethereal, and poignant, The Orphan's Tale is a novel you won't be able to put down." --Bustle "A compelling and beautifully told story about the power of female friendship, with all its complications." --PopSugar "The Orphan's Tale is not one person's story of abandonment but that of a generation lost to history. With a detailed command of circus life, unexpected twists and parallel narratives, Pam Jenoff uses the circus's mystique to symbolize each character's secrets." --Shelf Awareness "A gripping story about the power of friendship to save and redeem even in the darkest of circumstances. This is a book not to be missed." --Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Aviator's Wife "Jenoff expertly performs a pirouetting tale worthy of a standing ovation.... The Orphan's Tale proves that the human spirit defies hate, fear, and gravity with a triumphant ta-da!" --Sarah McCoy, New York Times bestselling author of The Mapmaker's Children "Riveting.... With deftness and emotion, Jenoff sets in motion a compelling story of friendship and courage." --Charles Belfoure, author of The Paris Architect and House of Thieves
