Three women, three generations....what is their connection?
Olive, Lucy, and Kate are the women. We learn about them in alternating chapters from 1892 to 1944 as the connection is hinted at it while we the reader try to figure out just how it all links together.
A house, a ruby necklace, a law firm, and an injured soldier start the connection and get the pieces together in this beautifully told story filled with love, loss, revenge, and secrets.
The house belongs to the Pratt family where Olive worked as a housemaid in 1892 and the housemaid that was forced to be painted by one of the Pratt's sons.
The ruby necklace is one that Kate's mother gave her but would never wear.
The law firm is where Lucy worked and where Lucy was trying to find out what she could about the Pratt house and Harry Pratt.
The injured soldier is mesmerized by Kate and said she looks exactly like someone he knew a long time ago.
I absolutely loved THE FORGOTTEN ROOM.
The three main characters were colorful, interesting, and perfectly portrayed the time period they were representing. Their connection is gradually revealed as each chapter adds more details to each woman's life and adds answers to how they are connected.
Ms. White, Ms. Williams, and Ms. Willig flawlessly combined their talents and put together a brilliant, intriguing, amazing book that has twists, secrets, and history.
THE FORGOTTEN ROOM is a book that historical fiction and women's fiction fans will devour.
Don’t miss reading THE FORGOTTEN ROOM. 5/5
