One of my favorites; Historical fiction about one building, three different time periods and how the "Forgotten Room" connects all three main characters. Each chapter is about one of the women in their specific time, what is happening in their lives and the "Forgotten Room". The ending is excellent, when we find out how all three main characters are related to the room. This book is written by three women authors

Very interesting book. I quite enjoyed it and the story about three generations

This trio writes so well together--you won't be able to tell who's who! Looking forward to another great historical fiction novel from them (they just starting writing another this November!).

Excellent book. Hard to put down.

A story of three generations of women written by three authors. It's done so well, I didn't recognize when different authors were writing different characters or sections. The three women each has a "forbidden" romance that they must make a decision about. I thought the plot twists were clever and enjoyed the heartfelt romantic relationships because they so well written. It's a great read.

Well written book. Could not even guess where one author changed.

Three authors writing a book together could have been tricky, and yet it's extremely well executed in this case. This is a multigenerational tale of three women (in 1892, 1920, and 1944) who are connected through a secret attic room in a Gilded Age mansion. The writing is seamless -- despite being quite familiar with the writing of two of the three authors (Williams and Willig), I have no idea who was responsible for writing which character -- and the premise is interesting and results in a plot full of twists and turns that kept me flipping pages late into the night. This book has a bittersweet ending -- some characters get their happy ending, others not so much -- and I was more moved by it than I expected to be. Recommended for fans of the authors' previous works, plus anyone who loves glamorous, romantic historical fiction.
