    4 starsWell that's the thing about choices isn't it? There are always to make I've never seen a street where you couldn't cross to the other side This was a beautifully written historical fiction written in a collaboration of 3 different authors Karen White Lauren Willig and Beatriz Williams Honestly everything flowed together so wonderfully that you can't even tell that 3 different authors had a hand in the different storylines1944 Kate Schuyler is a doctor working in a private hospital formerly a great mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side when Captain Cooper Ravenel is brought in with a badly infected war injury 1920 Lucy Young having accepted a job as a secretary at the law offices of Cromwell Polk and Moore has just made the move from Brooklyn to Manhatten seeking answers to uestions brought up about her paternity She has moved into the same building housing the private hospital that Kate works in though in the 1920's it was a women's boardinghouse1892 Olive Van Alan is a servant in the Pratt mansion yes the very same building mentioned twice already which her father designed Upon the Pratt's not paying for his services as their architect he took his own life leaving his wife and daughter to pick up the pieces and in Olive's case to look for a way to find revenge for her late fatherThis is their story spanning 3 generations Slowly throughout the book you start collecting little clues and learn how the women are connected to each other How their choices and loves have affected their futures and the futures of those that came after them The twist at the end was for me pretty unexpected For a time I thought I had it all figured out but I only had half the story I don't want to say much so as not to spoil any who might read this review before reading the book This was a really enjoyable read thoughit was a bit slow in the first third of the book but once the revelations started coming out I was hooked

    It isn't often that three point of views in three different eras are seamlessly woven together and so well done that it really is breathtaking but the authors of the Forgotten Room not only pulled it off but mastered itBeautifully detailed spoken and interwoven the tale of Olive Lucy and Kate was one I soon won't be forgetting Foreshadowed mysterious and lovingly laid out these three women all with different strong and determined voices couldn't have been presented better Each lovable endearing and completely relatable it was hard to choose a favorite any than I could have chosen a favorite hero from each sectionBeautifully detailed told and unfolded this really was so well done and has a story line that will stick with you long after the book has been put down I couldn't get enough of The Forgotten Room and it truly took me by surprise with how much I not only connected with it but savored and enjoyed itAn ARC copy of this was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    I was interested in reading this book when I saw Beatriz Williams listed as one of the co authors After having read it I'm wondering if she actually did write it or if her name was just used as some sort of a marketing tacticThe Forgotten Room is a series of love stories that takes place across three generations late 1800s just prior to the 1929 stock market crash and during World War 2 The narrators are a grandmother mother and daughter There is a uestion about the objects of their desire and whether or not they might actually be related Rather than maintaining an air of mystery it actually gets a bit confusing to keep track of who is whoI've referred to Williams's other writing as beach reads with a brain and her writing is smart and sharp Her female leads have moxie That is all missing here and was a disappointment The writing plot and story line were simply all right3 starsThank you to NetGalley and Penguin Group Berkley for a galley of this book in exchange for an honest review

    Fafa's Book Corner Wordpress Fafa's Book Corner Blogger I received this E ARC via Penguin Group Berkley and Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewDNFWhen I saw this on Netgalley I was fairly excited While it didn't sound like my kind of read it sounded interesting I love historical fiction romances and mystery This seemed like a good blend of them both Unfortunately I didn't enjoy this I am not going to put a spoiler tag I have only revealed what happens in the first chapterThe book begins in 1944 with one of our main characters Kate When Kate was a little girl her mother and her would walk around the area in which this beautiful mansion was located Sometime after her mother passed away she took up a job as a doctor in said mansion It's pretty hard for her because she happens to be the second female doctor The nurses seem to think that Kate is to proud and didn't want to be a nurse because it was beneath her Since the war begun there have been many patients coming to the mansion As another arrives she leaves to explain that unfortunately they do not have any space The head doctor arrives and he decides to take the soldier The soldier and the head doctor talk for a bit completely ignoring Kate Offended she takes the patients file and reads it out loud The two of them decide that the soldier needs an operation done She approaches him and tells him where he is and the operation being done He then holds her wrist and begs her not to take his leg away She is surprised that he is staring at her like he knows her On the stop she makes some decisions about how to go about his operation She suggests that he take her room and that she continues to check on him She will perform the operation herself If she fails the head doctor will take over with her full supportKate's point of view is in first person whereas Olive and Lucy are in third The first chapter was a really good start into the book I felt bad for Kate and how she was mistreated because she is a woman We are then taken to Olive and that is where things take a turn for the worst I didn't understand what I was reading It was so confusing It could've been because I was tired But I highly doubt that I think you need to have some patience when reading this book I didn't and this was of a 'It's not you but me' The writing was great Which is why I'm giving this a 2 starOverall I didn't have the patience for this Despite that I do highly recommend it It has a good mystery and nice romance There are some awesome reviews on this book so look at those as well when you are deciding to read this or not I do hope that you enjoy it than I did

    This book was TERRIBLE I could not wait to finish it and probably should not have bothered May contain spoilers This was pretty much pure drivel First there was no reason for it to take place in the three distinct time periods it encompassed all of which have interesting and highly significant events The social historical or political events of those times were never referenced in the story and did not influence the plot at all so the story could have been written in ANY three time periods This was frustrating as I love historical fiction and chose this book because of these three time periods Second the three stories are all the same exact story being told over and over It's repetitive to read and feels very contrived There are too many coincidences and it's just not plausible It moves very slowly and the mysteries are obvious way before they're revealed Nothing is surprising Third the inclusion of the middle character Lucy is completely unnecessary The book may have been better and at least intriguing if it just had Olive and Kate Those characters were at least slightly different and interesting to read about There was no literary need to include the middle characterFourth I also find it completely implausible that all the parents would have died young and no one would have been around into their child's adulthood Lucy's parents died before her story began as did Kate's This is just too convenient as they then did not have to answer their children's uestions Not believable and seems like the lazy way outThree different authors wrote this and they couldn't have come up with something better? It feels contrived is trite and lacks any historical relevance The characters are static and underdeveloped The epilogue was not an epilogue and completely unnecessary Everything that happened was the result of misunderstandings or communication failures which make the most frustrating and unbelievable plots Overall I was not impressed

    I was so excited when I got approved for this book A book written by 3 great authors? Count me in I've read books by all 3 of them and have never been disappointed by any of them This book is no exception It was so well written that I have no idea which author wrote which story I enjoyed all three stories of Olive Lucy and Kate This book spans three generations of women and their lives and loves Mostly a love story that seems doomed in every generation I enjoyed getting to know each woman and seeing if their story turned out differently than the last generation I do recommend this book because you simply can't go wrong with these authorsThank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review

    A New York mansion built before the turn of the century plays a major role in this uniue novel written by three authors You have heard me mention dual time novels; well this is a tri time story Each of the three authors presumably tells the story of a single period There was enough of a subtle difference; I could tell the book was written by multiple authors In addition the characters did get confusing at times What was really fun for the three authors is only marginally fun for the reader

  9. Elizabeth Elizabeth says:

    This was a beautiful book to read and enjoy The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I sometimes had trouble keeping the characters and their relationships straight Highly recommended

    Karen White Beatriz Williams and Lauren Willig three very popular authors  wrote this novel I was apprehensive because I thought the style would change from author to author but I was impressed that it flowed seamlesslyThis romantic novel covers three generations In 1892 Olive is a housemaid for a very wealthy family and she is out for revenge for her father’s death but her attraction to a certain artist could be her downfall In 1920 Lucy Olive’s daughter works for a law firm but she is there for one reason only She is desperate to discover some well buried secrets about her family In 1944 Lucy’s daughter Kate is a doctor healing soldiers returning from the war She is dedicated and determined to shine in a man’s world but her attraction to a very handsome patient sometimes cause troubles with her career These three women have a very interesting and puzzling connection concerning a ruby neckless and a mansion in ManhattanThe Forgotten Room Is most definitely a romantic historical novel and it has a dash of mystery in it I enjoyed it because it was a get away novel for me Although this book was slow and confusing in the first few chapters I stuck with it until I was able figure out who was who and then I enjoyed the story immensely I do recommend this to anyone that loves star crossed lovers and dramatic passion done well
