Book Review: The Forgotten Room

The Forgotten Room is a novel by Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig.

I really enjoyed the book and wouldn’t have known it was written by three different women. It’s the story of a love that spans three generations, the stories of Olive, Lucy, and Kate. Olive and Lucy’s stories are told third-person and Kate’s, the latest generation, is told first person.

What connects them all is a townhouse in Manhattan built in the early 1890s. With a five story central staircase topped with a domed skylight, kitchens in the basement, servants’ quarters on the sixth floor, and a room on the seventh floor perfect for an artist. A square room with a fireplace, large windows, and a skylight.

Stories of love found, and lost. Stories with a bit of mystery.
