From the New York Times bestselling authors of The Forgotten Room comes a captivating historical mystery, infused with romance, that links the lives of three women across a century--two deep in the past, one in the present--to the doomed passenger liner, RMS Lusitania. May 2013 Her finances are in dire straits and bestselling author Sarah Blake is struggling to find a big idea for her next book. Desperate, she breaks the one promise she made to her Alzheimer's-stricken mother and opens an old chest that belonged to her great-grandfather, who died when the RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German U-Boat in 1915. What she discovers there could change history. Sarah embarks on an ambitious journey to England to enlist the help of John Langford, a recently disgraced Member of Parliament whose family archives might contain the only key to the long-ago catastrophe. . . . April 1915 Southern belle Caroline Telfair Hochstetter's marriage is in crisis. Her formerly attentive industrialist husband, Gilbert, has become remote, pre-occupied with business . . . and something else that she can't quite put a finger on. She's hoping a trip to London in Lusitania's lavish first-class accommodations will help them reconnect--but she can't ignore the spark she feels for her old friend, Robert Langford, who turns out to be on the same voyage. Feeling restless and longing for a different existence, Caroline is determined to stop being a bystander, and take charge of her own life. . . . Tessa Fairweather is traveling second-class on the Lusitania, returning home to Devon. Or at least, that's her story. Tessa has never left the United States and her English accent is a hasty fake. She's really Tennessee Schaff, the daughter of a roving con man, and she can steal and forge just about anything. But she's had enough. Her partner has promised that if they can pull off this one last heist aboard the Lusitania, they'll finally leave the game behind. Tess desperately wants to believe that, but Tess has the uneasy feeling there's something about this job that isn't as it seems. . . . As the Lusitania steams toward its fate, three women work against time to unravel a plot that will change the course of their own lives . . . and history itself.… (lisätietoja)

*Small Spoiler* The writing is excellent. I fell in love with many of the characters, especially Tess Fairweather. And the playful banter, back-and-forth dialogue, and fun flirting between male Brits and female Americans, in both timelines is simply a joy!
I got to page 238 before the token gay male character showed up. As I've said before, no judgements, and I'm not looking for a discussion, but am simply sharing the info for those it may help. If it doesn't help you, there are lots of other reviews on here that might. :) ( )

I was not sure The Forgotten Room the first collaboration book from Willig, Williams and White could be topped but this is a fabulous book. Truly could not put it down. Remarkable character development and voice. You will be on the edge of your seating as the ending rushes toward you and you wonder the fate of your favorite characters.
A must read for historical fiction fans. 5 Stars from me. ( )

I don't usually like novels with shifting points of view, but this one works even with 2 points of view in 1915 and a third in 2013. The class divide between Caroline and Tess in 1915 and Sarah and John in 2013 is clear cut. Under currents of love and betrayal add layers of interest. ( )

I thought this would be mystery and intrigue with a little romance. But it was mostly romance with a little mystery and intrigue. It’s not a bad book but it wasn’t that interesting to me. ( )

This was primarily a romance and just didn't really work for me. ( )
