The New York Times bestselling authors of The Glass Ocean and The Forgotten Room return with a glorious historical adventure that moves from the dark days of two World Wars to the turbulent years of the 1960s, in which three women with bruised hearts find refuge at Paris' legendary Ritz hotel. The heiress . . . The Resistance fighter . . . The widow . . . Three women whose fates are joined by one splendid hotel France, 1914. As war breaks out, Aurelie becomes trapped on the wrong side of the front with her father, Comte Sigismund de Courcelles. When the Germans move into their family's ancestral estate, using it as their headquarters, Aurelie discovers she knows the German Major's aide de camp, Maximilian Von Sternburg. She and the dashing young officer first met during Aurelie's debutante days in Paris. Despite their conflicting loyalties, Aurelie and Max's friendship soon deepens into love, but betrayal will shatter them both, driving Aurelie back to Paris and the Ritz-- the home of her estranged American heiress mother, with unexpected consequences. France, 1942. Raised by her indomitable, free-spirited American grandmother in the glamorous Hotel Ritz, Marguerite "Daisy" Villon remains in Paris with her daughter and husband, a Nazi collaborator, after France falls to Hitler. At first reluctant to put herself and her family at risk to assist her grandmother's Resistance efforts, Daisy agrees to act as a courier for a skilled English forger known only as Legrand, who creates identity papers for Resistance members and Jewish refugees. But as Daisy is drawn ever deeper into Legrand's underground network, committing increasingly audacious acts of resistance for the sake of the country--and the man--she holds dear, she uncovers a devastating secret . . . one that will force her to commit the ultimate betrayal, and to confront at last the shocking circumstances of her own family history. France, 1964. For Barbara "Babs" Langford, her husband, Kit, was the love of her life. Yet their marriage was haunted by a mysterious woman known only as La Fleur. On Kit's death, American lawyer Andrew "Drew" Bowdoin appears at her door. Hired to find a Resistance fighter turned traitor known as "La Fleur," the investigation has led to Kit Langford. Curious to know more about the enigmatic La Fleur, Babs joins Drew in his search, a journey of discovery that that takes them to Paris and the Ritz--and to unexpected places of the heart. . . .… (lisätietoja)

I loved the previous books from Williams, Willig and White and this one was even better. Paris, the Ritz and WWII is a favorite location and genre for me. I raced from page to page and loved the 3 timelines. I would give this one a sky full of stars is possible. Definitely if you are a historical fiction fan put this one on your want to read list. ( )

This book follows three different storylines. In 1914, Aurelie impulsively leaves her home with her mother at the Ritz hotel and travels to her father's ancestral home in Courcelles. When the German's take over the area, they decide to use their home as their headquarters. In 1942, Daisy lives in Paris with her two young children and husband, a Nazi collaborator. Reluctant at first, she joins the French Resistance, and finds herself falling in love with a fellow spy. In 1964, following the death of her husband, Babs receives a letter, hinting that her husband was involved with the famous French resistance letter La Fleur. Babs journeys from England to the Ritz hotel, where she hopes to unravel more information about La Fleur, and her relationship with her husband.

I found this book to be very tedious. Although the three storylines were related, it felt like the authors spent so much time developing the various storylines that nothing ever happened. Most of the book felt like background story rather than actual forward moving plot. The women's resistance and war work was barely discussed, instead the book focused on romance. Overall, this was a bust. ( )

I always worry when a book has more than one author. Will the story flow and not be choppy? You hope that it will be seamless and that you won't be able to tell the difference in who wrote what part of the book. Well in this case, this book worked!!

This is a story of three women, in three different periods of time. World War 1, World War 2 and the 1960's. These women are all strong women, often times they have more strength than they know and they each find themselves capable of so much more than they ever knew possible.

I absolutely loved this book! And those that love stories of strong women and historical fiction will love this book!

Thank you Edelweiss, William Morrow and Harper Collins for this ebook! I think you have an amazing book that many will love! ( )

The scope of this novel, with three intertwining stories covering two world wars, is vast but the authors manage to make each story-line come together and capture the spirit of different eras and women. Babs is a 1960s British widow who comes to Paris, and specifically the Ritz, to discover what her late husband might have with a French Resistance spy during WWII. Aurelie is the wealthy daughter of a French aristocratic family who finds herself behind enemy lines during the First World War and at odds with a German officer she knew in Paris before the conflict. Daisy, Aurelie's daughter, is a Parisian housewife in the 1940s who starts to work for the Resistance by delivering messages from a local bookshop. These three women each evoke different eras and personalities but they all manage to tell a seamless story of war, resistance, and love that's often just too good to put down. ( )
