From the New York Times best-selling authors of The Forgotten Room comes a captivating historical mystery, infused with romance, that links the lives of three women across a century – two deep in the past, one in the present – to the doomed passenger liner, RMS Lusitania.
Her finances are in dire straits, and best-selling author Sarah Blake is struggling to find a big idea for her next book. Desperate, she breaks the one promise she made to her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother and opens an old chest that belonged to her great-grandfather, who died when the RMS Lusitaniawas 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 Hochstetter’s marriage is in crisis. Her formerly attentive industrialist husband, Gilbert, has become remote, preoccupied with business…and something else on which she can’t quite put a finger. She’s hoping a trip to London in Lusitania‘s lavish first-class accommodations will help them reconnect – but she can’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, that’s her story. Tessa has never left the US, and her English accent is a hasty fake. She’s really Tennessee Schaff, the daughter of a roving con man, and she can steal and forge just about anything. But she’s had enough. Her partner has promised that if they can pull off this one last heist aboard the Lusitania, they’ll finally leave the game behind. Tess desperately wants to believe that, but Tess has the uneasy feeling there’s something about this job that isn’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.

My biggest issue with this book is the fact that it keeps coming back to the near-present when it doesn't need to. The chapters which revolve around "Sarah" are set in 2013, and they are all tedious filler. The book would be improved if "Sarah" were completely removed. Fortunately, most of the chapters set in 1915 are quite enjoyable. They revolve around two separate women, Caroline and Tess, who cross paths on the doomed ship, RMS Lusitania. The "Tess" chapters are especially well-written and well-performed. The chapters set in 1915 have a good mixture of romance, mystery, and suspense. It's just a shame that the book insists on constantly leaving 1915 in order to go back to 2013.
