review ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Karen White

Ed out as a servant in the very house her father designed and Jazz Age Lucy Young who came from Brooklyn to Manhattan in pursuit of the father she had never known But are Kate and Cooper ready for the secrets that will be revealed in the Forgotten Room The Forgotten Room set in alternating time periods is a sumptuous feast of a novel brought to vivid life by three brilliant storytellers. 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

Rations of women in her family to a single extraordinary room in a Gilded Age mansionWho is the woman in Captain Ravenel's portrait miniature who looks so much like Kate And why is she wearing the ruby pendant handed down to Kate by her mother In their pursuit of answers they find themselves drawn into the turbulent stories of Gilded Age Olive Van Alen driven from riches to rags who hir. 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
