From the New York Times bestselling authors of The
Forgotten Room comes a captivating historical mystery,
infused with romance, that links the lives of three women
across a centuryâ€”two deep in the past, one in the present
â€”to the doomed passenger liner, RMS Lusitania.
Her finances are in dire straits and bestselling author
Sarah Blake is struggling to find a big idea for her next
book. Desperate, she breaks the one promise she made to
her Alzheimerâ€™s-stricken mother and opens an old chest
that belonged to her great-grandfather, who died when the
RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German U-Boat in 1915. What
she discovers there could change history. Sarah embarks
on an ambitious journey to England to enlist the help of
John Langford, a recently disgraced Member of Parliament
whose family archives might contain the only key to the
long-ago catastrophe. . . .
Southern belle Caroline Telfair Hochstetterâ€™s marriage is
in crisis. Her formerly attentive industrialist husband,
Gilbert, has become remote, pre-occupied with business .
. . and something else that she canâ€™t quite put a finger
on. Sheâ€™s hoping a trip to London in Lusitaniaâ€™s lavish
first-class accommodations will help them reconnectâ€”but
she canâ€™t ignore the spark she feels for her old friend,
Robert Langford, who turns out to be on the same voyage.
Feeling restless and longing for a different existence,
Caroline is determined to stop being a bystander, and
take charge of her own life. . . .
Tessa Fairweather is traveling second-class on the
Lusitania, returning home to Devon. Or at least, thatâ€™s
her story. Tessa has never left the United States and her
English accent is a hasty fake. Sheâ€™s really Tennessee
Schaff, the daughter of a roving con man, and she can
steal and forge just about anything. But sheâ€™s had
enough. Her partner has promised that if they can pull
off this one last heist aboard the Lusitania, theyâ€™ll
finally leave the game behind. Tess desperately wants to
believe that, but Tess has the uneasy feeling thereâ€™s
something about this job that isnâ€™t as it seems. . . .
As the Lusitania steams toward its fate, three women work
against time to unravel a plot that will change the
course of their own lives . . . and history itself.
