Good day, dear readers!
Where in the world has this year gone!? I am sitting on the couch, enjoying a blazing fire, but deep down, I am missing summer. It seems that this year has gone by in a flash! Before too long, we are going to be right in the center of holiday mayhem and spending time with friends and family.
When you need that time alone, there is always a good book to keep you company and transport you to another world. Everyone needs to unwind, and books are the perfect pastime, especially during the colder months.
Currently, we are reading “The Collectors Daughter” by Gill Paul. This exciting journey through the sands of Egypt will be a fun adventure. Next month, we are going to be reading “The Forgotten Room” by Karen White, Lauren Willig, and Beatriz Williams. This book is going to take us on a journey through three different time periods and uncover a mystery along the way. Let’s dive into a great book!
1945: When the critically wounded Captain Cooper Ravenal 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 portrait miniature 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 Gilded Age Olive Van Alen, driven from riches to rags, who hired out as a servant in the very house her father designed, and Jazz Age Lucy Young, who came from Brooklyn to Manhattan in pursuit of the father she had never known. But are Kate and Cooper ready for the secrets that will be revealed in the Forgotten Room?
The Forgotten Room, set in alternating time periods, is a sumptuous feast of a novel brought to vivid life by three brilliant storytellers.
