In The Forgotten Room, three separate stories emerge. We meet Olive in 1892, Lucy in 1920, and Kate in 1945. Olive is serving as a housemaid, seeking revenge against the mansion's owner for her father's death. Lucy is employed with a law firm and plans to use those connections to learn more about her mother's past and who her real father might be. Kate is a young female doctor serving during World War II, struggling to receive equal treatment from her peers when she encounters a handsome male patient and feels an odd sense of deja vu.
The book flows so seamlessly, you really can't fathom it was written by three different authors. Each character and time period seems genuine and authentic. The mansion itself is such a prevalent part of the story, that it nearly becomes a separate character in the book. The descriptions are so vivid you can easily picture the mansion in your mind. Each storyline is equally compelling and being fans of all the authors, I found myself trying to figure out who had written which part. I absolutely loved it and purchased an autographed copy for my own collection from The FoxTale Book Shoppe. I really hope these three authors collaborate again and I will be first in line to purchase their next book.
I received this book from Penguin Group Berkley,NAL/Signet Romance,DAW through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
