Booklist Review: "Williams, Willig, and White (The Glass Ocean, 2018) once again join forces to follow the perspectives of three women across time. Aurélie, Daisy, and Babs are united by a common thread of history and a life-changing stay at the Paris Ritz. Their story begins in 1964, as Babs, while staying at the Ritz, searches for answers about her late husband's time in France during WWII and uncovers the identity of his mistress while beginning a relationship of her own. Fifty years prior, in the midst of WWI, Aurélie feels suffocated by her mother's pretentious salon at the Ritz and escapes to her father's country estate. She finds anything but refuge, though, and falls in love with an enemy soldier. A generation later, during WWII, readers meet Aurélie's daughter, Daisy, who has grown up at the Ritz. Trapped in a marriage to a Nazi supporter, Daisy clandestinely helps families escape France and falls in love with a fellow spy. Full of heart and intrigue, the authors' latest collaboration captures women's perseverance and how history connects us all.--Melissa Norstedt Copyright 2019 Booklist"
