  • Great Novel!

    The Forgotten Room by Karen White, Beatriz Williams and Lauren Willig. It is a novel about three women from three different eras, but their stories are all connected (sounds confusing and it is at first). Olive Van Allen Is working as a maid in the Pratt mansion in 1892 to find information that will help clear her father’s name (and get a little revenge). Lucy Young is working as a secretary in a law office in 1920 and trying to find out about her birth father. Lucy found out recently that the father who raised her is not her biological father. Kate Schuyler is a doctor in 1942. Captain Cooper Ravenel is brought in with a bad leg. Kate saves his leg and nurses him back to health. Cooper (delirious when he arrives) calls her Victorine and that he has been drawing her face his whole life. Captain Ravenel has a small miniature portrait that resembles Kate. How is this possible? How are these women connected and what are their stories? I do not want to say too much and give away the novel. The Forgotten Room drew me in right away. I enjoyed the story. You would not know that the book was written by three different writers. The book is very well-written, engaging, and a delight to read. I just kept reading until the book ended. I love how all the storylines tied together into one beautiful story. The first 31% of the book is a wee bit confusing, but then it will all click. The Forgotten Room is a pleasure to read. The story has romance and mystery that are beautifully woven together. I give The Forgotten Room 5 out of 5 stars. I hope you will give The Forgotten Room a try (you will not regret it). I received a complimentary copy of The Forgotten Room from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  • Very Good Multi-generational Romance

    I was initially attracted to this book because Karen White is one of the authors. I’ve read quite a few of her books and enjoyed them all. This, of course, has two other authors. I haven’t read them before, but after reading this I’ll be seeking out their books in the future. I have my suspicions about which sections Karen White wrote, but I enjoyed the entire book. This had all the elements I love in a book - a multi-generational story that takes the reader back in time, with romance and a little mystery. It jumps back and forth in time, and early on I had to pay attention to keep up with which time period we were in, but after a while it became easier to keep track. The characters were interesting, and there was a good feeling for the different times and settings. Overall, I very much enjoyed the three storylines in the book, and look forward to reading more by Beatriz Williams and Lauren Willig. Copy provided by Netgalley and Penguin Random House in exchange for an unbiased review.

  • Fun Read But Put On Your Thinking Cap!

    Good story and fun to figure out the connections between the characters. Was more confusing, however, than the book the three wrote together about the sinking of a passenger ship during WW II. Now reading the third book by the three women. I love books written in different persons and I am enjoying the different time eras. The mystery makes it fun!

  • Deliciously complicated

    Even though I had challenges with the connections between the charactera in each era - I was so enthralled with the characters that it never spoiled this unique saga. Absorbing and engaging from beginning to end .

  • Meh!

    Although this book paints a somewhat accurate picture of women's struggles in our recent past, I would prefer to read about those who rose above the norms and not the mundane weaklings who succumbed to society's expectations. Characters are disappointing and the book should be more accurately described as a "romance". Too bad, as I normally enjoy these authors.
