Monday Give Away
I’ve been working away at revisions on my section of the new Three Ws book (aka the Lusitania Book, aka Title to be Announced Soon!), so for today’s Monday give away, we have… a signed paperback copy of The Forgotten Room!
Here’s the official blurb:
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 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 historical storytellers.
This book is set in three time periods: Gilded Age, 1920s, and World War II. For your chance to win a copy, here’s your question: which of those time periods would you most like to visit?
The winner will be announced on Thursday.
Psssst, just between us, for any Forgotten Room readers out there, you just might see a character from The Forgotten Room pop up in the Lusitania Book….
I would love to visit the Gilded Age to see the wonder of all the technological advances that occurred during that period.
The gilded age.
For a brief visit, the roaring 1920’s (before the stock market crash) would be a grand time to party. (A young woman recently mentioned to me how romantic the World War II years were because of the hair & fashions! That’s not how my mother described her army nurse uniform or nursing wounded soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge as near to the front lines as the nurses could be. My father also never romanticized or even discussed fighting the Japanese in the jungles of Burma.)
If I could time travel to any of the three time period’s in this book I think it would be the 1920s. I love the fashions, the music, silent films, the excess.
The 1920’s for sure.
I would love to visit the 1920s the most. I find that time fascinating!
I would love to soak in the excitement of the 1920s.
The Gilded Age has always fascinated me. The world changed so much during those years and so many innovations.
I’d love a copy!!
And i totally forgot to answer the question…I love the 1920s!
It looks like a great book. How can I not want the gilded age after downton abby!
The Gilded Age, because of the fabulous clothes. That’s it. Pretty basic 🙂
I would love to visit the 1920s. I love flappers and speakeasys and have always wanted to be immersed in the culture.
The 1920s for sure!
Gilded Age UES?! What could be better? ?
The Gilded Age.
I would like to go back to the period of WW 2. I would really like to see what the atmosphere was before I was born in December, 1945.
WWII. Just on the home front.
The Gilded Age!
The Gilded Age! The 20’s might be fun, but there is the emotional fall-out of WWI to deal with, and WWII is too terrible to visit for me.
The Gilded Age, of course.
Gilded Age France or England 🙂
The art, the clothes, the Victorian and Edwardian time periods colliding together.
WW 2 era would be my choice especially if I could meet my hero Winston Churchill!
I would like definitely 1920’s visit.
I think I’m leaning towards visiting the 1920s for the drop waists.
I would love to read your book.
I love the 20’s. Would love the new book!
The 1920’s !
The gilded age
