New York Times bestselling authors Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig present a masterful collaboration--a rich, multigenerational novel of love and loss that spans half a century....   1945: When critically wounded Captain Cooper Ravenel is brought to a private hospital on Manhattan's Upper East Side, young Dr. Kate Schuyler is drawn into a complex mystery that connects three generations of women in her family to a single extraordinary room in a Gilded Age mansion.   Who is the woman in Captain Ravenel's miniature portrait who looks so much like Kate? And why is she wearing the ruby pendant handed down to Kate by her mother? In their pursuit of answers, they find themselves drawn into the turbulent stories of Olive Van Alan, driven in the Gilded Age from riches to rags, who hired out as a servant in the very house her father designed, and Lucy Young, who in the Jazz Age came from Brooklyn to Manhattan seeking the father she had never known. But are Kate and Cooper ready for the secrets that will be revealed in the Forgotten Room?   READERS GUIDE INCLUDED… (plus d'informations)

A well-crafted story that weaves together characters from three generations. It was hard to tell who wrote what, which is often not the case with collaborations like these. ( )

Some of the fun is lost when you predict the ending/twist when you're only 1/3 of the way in... Oh well- I think I've read too many books with similar storylines. ( )

Lovely story following 3 generations of women trying to make sense of their world and find love. Easy read ( )

Simply fabulous, one of the best books I have read this year. Put this one of your TBR list and get out a tissue, you might need it. I did. ( )

It’s unusual to come across a novel written by three authors, and one would wonder how the three different writing styles would mesh. I’m happy to say that these three prolific authors have done an excellent job of telling one story, in three parts. Set in three different eras in New York City - the late 1800s, the 1920s and mid-1940s - this novel tells the story of one mansion, its inhabitants over the years, and secrets that were born in a forgotten room on the top floor.

With three different narrators, and times-shifts between the historical eras, the writing is nonetheless seamless. And some of the chapters end in such a way that you have to resist flipping forward to the continuation of the story line (I admit I didn’t resist a few times)! If you enjoy historical fiction, with a bit of romance, this emotionally satisfying novel will be a treat for you.
