It's 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?

Loved this story, though I’m a sucker for historical romances. All three characters stories tie into each other beautifully. Narrators are great and I could not put it down. Sad to hear it end and that I have to find another book!

When twenty-something Wall Street analyst Kate Wilson attracts the notice of the legendary Julian Laurence at a business meeting, no one’s more surprised than she is. Julian’s relentless energy and his extraordinary intellect electrify her, but she’s baffled by his sudden interest. Why would this handsome British billionaire—Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor—pursue a pretty but bookish young banker who hasn’t had a boyfriend since college?

I loved the story! While it had a few spots that seemed a little iffy I enjoyed this story very much. Anyone who likes time travel and history this is a great one. Near the end I could not stop listening. January LaVoy does an excellent job at reading the story.

When she discovers her husband cheating, Ella Hawthorne impulsively moves out of their SoHo loft and into a small apartment in an old Greenwich Village building. Her surprisingly attractive new neighbor, Hector, warns her to stay out of the basement at night. Tenants have reported strange noises after midnight - laughter, clinking glasses, jazz piano - even though the space has been empty for decades. Back in the Roaring '20s, the place hid a speakeasy.

Great story though there are a few holes. As in what about the buttons? I loved the stories and the way they go back and forth from 1998 to 1924. Geneva Rose’s story is excellent and couldn’t wait to return. Ella’s story was also great and not too far fetched. It could happen. I love how they intertwine a bit and settle at the end. Though I would like to know more of what happens to them but that is left to our imaginations.
