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… (mere)

This is a cool bit of historical fiction with a star-crossed lovers element to it. It reminded me of The Clockmaker’s Daughter in a way because it had different characters living in different time periods who are all connected, and you’re trying to figure out what happened. You think you know pretty early on, but you don’t actually get the full picture until the very end!

1892 - Olive Van Alan is a maid working in the house her architect father designed, serving the family who ruined him, hoping to uncover proof of their mistreatment.

1920 - Lucy Young moves into a room in the mansion-turned-boardinghouse as she begins her new secretary job and attempts to learn the true identity of her father.

1944 - Dr. Kate Schuyler is treating war patients in a converted hospital when she discovers one Captain Ravenel in possession of a miniature portrait that looks just like her.

As the pieces fall into place, the identities of these women come to light and their stories begin to bleed together. If walls could talk, the room on the seventh floor would have a lot to say! ( )

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.

First time reading a novel by the three writers. I really enjoyed it. It started good with Kate's story then I was lost after the first chapter. I was going to give up then after a while you get the feel of the story and it pulls you in. I drew a family tree to keep track of the characters. Was a great read. ( )

The perfect trifecta of authors made this book a huge hit for me! An awesome mastery of storytelling.
Three generations of women unknowingly connected, a hidden attic room, and a wide cast of characters create the story. The magic occurs as you move along and pieces begin to click into place. How they coordinated it is beyond me.....but it was such a worthwhile read! ( )
