For the first time in history three women authors have gotten together to tell a story. This story is written one seamless story. The Forgotten Room is one such novel. I also know that they are working on another project.
Olivia Van Alen is a maid in the Pratt mansion in New York. She has taken the post to get revenge for her father’s death. Will she be able to find the proof that she needs? Or will she be distracted by one of the sons? Their story remains a secret until we meet Lucy Young who takes a job with a law firm. Her boss is a Schuyler and one of his clients is a Ravenel. When Lucy is asked to take this client out will she find that they have more in common than she thought? Then in the Second World War the mansion has become a hospital. Doctor Kate Schuyler who is Lucy’s daughter makes a case for taking on an extra patient. This patient is Cooper Ravenel. What will they discover about their common pasts?
I loved this novel! I am a fan of at least two of the authors Karen White and Beatriz Williams. I have yet to be able to share one of Lauren Willig’s novels. I hope to in the future. I loved that the story is seamless from beginning to end. The plot in this book will keep the reader hooked from beginning to the end! The story is set in three different time periods the Gilded Age, The Jazz Age, and the World War Two era. I found myself wanting to skip ahead to find out what happened next. I know that the authors worked hard on making these characters gel together in one seamless way. I might have liked the pacing to be a little quicker in the novel.
I can’t wait for their next novel together!
