    4 stars Well, that s the thing about choices, isn t it There are always to make I ve never seen a street where you couldn t cross to the other side This was a beautifully written historical fiction, written in a collaboration of 3 different authors Karen White, Lauren Willig and Beatriz Williams Honestly, everything flowed together so wonderfully that you can t even tell that 3 different authors had a hand in the different storylines.1944 Kate Schuyler is a doctor working in a private hospital formerly a great mansion on Manhattan s Upper East Side when Captain Cooper Ravenel is brought in with a badly infected war injury 1920 Lucy Young, having accepted a job as a secretary at the law offices of Cromwell, Polk and Moore, has just made the move from Brooklyn to Manhatten, seeking answers to questions brought up about her paternity She has moved into the same building housing the private hospital that Kate works in, though in the 1920 s it was a women s boardinghouse.1892 Olive Van Alan is a servant in the Pratt mansion yes, the very same building mentioned twice already , which her father designed Upon the Pratt s not paying for his services as their architect, he took his own life, leaving his wife and daughter to pick up the pieces and in Olive s case, to look for a way to find revenge for her late father.This is their story, spanning 3 generations Slowly throughout the book, you start collecting little clues and learn how the women are connected to eac...

    It isn t often that three point of views, in three different eras, are seamlessly woven together and so well done that it really is breathtaking but the authors of the Forgotten Room, not only pulled it off, but mastered it.Beautifully detailed, spoken and interwoven, the tale of Olive, Lucy, and Kate was one I soon won t be forgetting Foreshadowed, mysterious, and lovingly laid out, these three women all with different, strong, and determined voices, couldn t have been presented better Each lovable, endearing, and completely relatable, it was hard to choose a favorite any than I could have chosen a favorite hero from each section.Beautifully detailed, told, and unfolded, this really was so well done and has a story line that will stick with you long after the book has been put down I couldn t get enough of The Forgotten Room and it truly took me by surprise with how much I not only...

    Three women, three generations.what is their connection Olive, Lucy, and Kate are the women We learn about the m in alternating chapters from 1892 to 1944 as the connection is hinted at it while we the reader try to figure out just how it all links together.A house, a ruby necklace, a law firm, and an injured soldier start the connection and get the pieces together in this beautifully told story filled with love, loss, revenge, and secrets The house belongs to the Pratt family where Olive worked as a housemaid in 1892 and the housemaid that was forced to be painted by one of the Pratt s sons.The ruby necklace is one that Kate s mother gave her but would never wear.The law firm is where Lucy worked and where Lucy was trying to find out what she could about the Pratt house and Harry Pratt.The injured soldier is mesmerized by Kate and said she looks exactly like someone he knew a long time ago.I absolutely loved THE FORGOTTEN ROOM.The three main characters were colorful, interesting, and perfectly portrayed the time ...

    I was interested in reading this book when I saw Beatriz Williams listed as one of the co authors After having read it, I m wondering if she actually did write it, or if her name was just used as some sort of a marketing tactic The Forgotten Room is a series of love stories that takes place across three generations late 1800s, just prior to the 1929 stock market crash, and during World War 2 The narrators are a grandmother, mother, and daughter There is a question about the objects of their desire, and whether or not they might actually be related Rather than maintaining an air of mystery, it actually gets a bit confusing to keep track of who is who.I ve referred to Williams s other writing as beach reads with a brain and her writing is smart and sharp Her female leads have moxie That is all missing here, and was a disappointment The writing, plot, and story line were simply all right.3 stars.Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Group Berkley for a galley of th...

    Fafa s Book Corner Wordpress Fafa s Book Corner Blogger I received this E ARC via Penguin Group Berkley and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.DNFWhen I saw this on Netgalley I was fairly excited While it didn t sound like my kind of read, it sounded interesting I love historical fiction, romances and mystery This seemed like a good blend of them both Unfortunately I didn t enjoy this I am not going to put a spoiler tag I have only revealed what happens in the first chapter.The book begins in 1944 with one of our main characters Kate When Kate was a little girl her mother and her would walk around the area in which this beautiful mansion was located Sometime after her mother passed away she took up a job as a doctor in said mansion It s pretty hard for her because she happens to be the second female doctor The nurses seem to think that Kate is to proud and didn t want to be a nurse because it was beneath her Since the war begun there have been many patients coming to the mansion As another arrives she leaves to explain ...

    I was so excited when I got approved for this book A book written by 3 great authors Count me in I ve read books by all 3 of them and have never been disappointed by any of them This book is no exception It was so well written that I have no idea which author wrote which story I enjoyed all three stories of Olive, Lucy, and Kate This book spans three generations of women and their lives and loves Mostly a love story that seems doomed in every generation I enjoyed ge...

    A New York mansion built before the turn of the century plays a major role in this unique novel written by three authors You have heard me mention dual time novels well this is a tri time story Each of the three authors presumably tells the story of a single period There wa...

    This book was TERRIBLE I could not wait to finish it, and probably should not have bothered May contain spoilers This was pretty much pure drivel First, there was no reason for it to take place in the three distinct time periods it encompassed, all of which have interesting and highly significant events The social, historical, or political events of those times were never referenced in the story and did not influence the plot at all, so the story could have been written in ANY three time periods This was frustrating, as I love historical fiction and chose this book because of these three time periods Second, the three stories are all the same exact story being told over and over It s repetitive to read and feels very contrived There are too many coincidences and it s just not plausible It moves very slowly and the mysteries are obvious way before they re revealed Nothing is surprising Third, the inclusion of the middle character, Lucy, is completely unnecessary The book may have been better and at least intriguing if it just had Olive and Kate Those characters were at least slightly different and interesting to read about There was no literary need to include the middle character.Fourth, I also f...

    Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig, three very popular authors, wrote this novel I was apprehensive because I thought the style would change from author to author but I was impressed that it flowed seamlessly.This romantic novel covers three generations In 1892 Olive is a housemaid for a very wealthy family and she is out for revenge for her father s death but her attraction to a certain artist could be her downfall In 1920 Lucy, Olive s daughter, works for a law firm but she is there for one reason only She is desperate to discover some well buried secrets about her family In 1944, Lucy s daughter, Kate, is a doctor healing soldiers returning from the war She is dedicated and determined to shine in a man s world but her attraction to a very handsome patient sometimes cause troubles with her career These three women have a very interesting and puzzling connection concerning a ruby neckless and a mansion in...

    The Forgotten Room is a unique story told in three different points of view and three different times of the ages What was so interesting is that the story blends together people whose lives intersect in ways they never could have imagined across generations It s amazing that these three authors can each write about a personality and then bring together heartwarming story about men and women whose lives will be changed forever.This is a story of three beautiful romances that are both touching and heartbreaking at the same time I just could not get enough th...
