Each writer tells the tale of one of the three female characters set in: 1914, 1942, 1964. As this writing team has done in two earlier works, the joint effort works seamlessly and effectively. While two of the three timelines take place during World Wars, the focus is on the strong women who are trying to survive versus the detailed horrors of war that we normally find in historical fiction during these periods. I was fully transported into this novel in which the Ritz Hotel provides its central location across the decades. In addition to the three lead women, the men in the book were well developed and admirable and the supporting women characters were wonderful. (Fans of Beatriz Williams will enjoy the appearance of a member of the Schuyler family.) Many thanks to Edelweiss, William Morrow/Harper Collins and The Three W’s for an advance copy.
