A bit of history and a bit of romance. Nothing earth shaking here...but it was good storytelling and it was a pleasant read.

I really wanted to like it but I've found it bland and shallow. One of those pink syrupy romance novels which are easily predictable.

I have no clue why they call the book historical.

You'll be better off reading "All the Light We Cannot See" or "The Night Circus".

Since this is the 3rd book in the Schuyler sisters series, make certain you have read one and two first. Requested from MNLINK

Enjoyable light read. Pepper Schuyler is a great character, Annabelle Dommerich less so and her sections could have been edited down to give some more space to Pepper's story. The version of Germany and France in the late 1930s is VERY much European History Lite; some of Williams' other novels (particularly A Certain Age) are much better on painting an accurate and compelling picture of the era she's writing about.

Really tough to get into. First world problems and glitz that is difficult to relate to.

Loved the story line and characters. I could not put it down!

This is pretty standard Beatriz Williams fare (which means, of course, that I loved it): beautiful people, dual storylines (one in 1966, one in 1935-38), glamorous settings (Palm Beach, the Cap d'Antibes, Paris, Berlin), lots of lovely historical details, and a puzzle that keeps the pages turning. Williams' writing is beautiful, and the historical setting is vividly drawn -- the backdrop of Nazi Germany (a critical part of the plot, making this unquestionably Williams' most emotionally wrenching book yet) is clearly well-researched. The ending is a bit more bittersweet than is typical for Williams, and I'm not entirely sure how all readers will like it, but if you are a fan of glamorous period pieces, this is the book for you (as are all her others, in fact; start with A Hundred Summers and work from there).
