New York Times bestselling authors Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig present a masterful collaboration-a rich, multigenerational novel of love and loss that spans half a century.... 1945: When the critically wounded Captain Cooper Ravenal is brought to a private hospital on Manhattan's Upper East Side, young Dr. Kate Schuyler is drawn into a complex mystery that connects three generations of women in her family to a single extraordinary room in a Gilded Age mansion. Who 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 hired 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.

Professional reviews

"Three compelling stories involving three time periods, a Gilded Age mansion, secrets, a ruby necklace, and love receive outstanding performances by Susan Bennett and Morgan Hallett. A mystery spanning generations connects Olive, Lucy, Kate, and the Pratt mansion in Manhattan. Bennett portrays Olive, the Pratts' maid in 1890, as a determined woman who is hoping for justice for her father and hiding her affair with the Pratts' son. Bennett switches personas seamlessly, giving Olive's daughter, Lucy, a jazzy 1920s attitude full of flapper flash. Hallett holds it all together as Kate, the only woman doctor at Stornaway Hospital during WWII. Her depiction of Kate is at once no-nonsense yet soft-hearted. Credible coincidences, captivating characters, and the narrators' authentic period diction fit together seamlessly. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
