Plot-master Gable s affection for hidden treasures emerges again in her second absorbing novel. Readers are kept guessing til the end in this sweet story of love, mystery, art, literature, and Paris. As complex and moving as Naomi Wood s "Mrs. Hemingway" and Liz Trenow s T"he Forgotten Seamstress." -"Booklist"
"Gable ("A Paris Apartment") writes an engaging story, and both worlds Annie's in 2001 and Pru's in 1973 are easy to slide into. Readers will root for both women as they uncover family secrets and discover hidden aspects of themselves. Readers of Kate Morton and those who enjoy family-centered mysteries will approve highly of this book." -"Library Journal"
"Gable has crafted another page-turner of a good read, filled with history, mystery and a dash of romance. This is the sort of fun, escapist read that is beloved by books clubs. There are characters to love, characters to hate, enticing settings and a requisite amount of plot twists." -"Fort Worth Star-Telegram"
Michelle Gable . . . elegantly navigates the narratives of the generations, making each set of characters complex and likable. "Richmond Times Dispatch"
Gable s novel provides a wonderful, highly literate mystery . . . stories within stories, an almost "Wuthering Heights" narrative complexity. "The Roanoke Times"
"Gable ("A Paris Apartment," 2014) tells an engaging story of a fascinating, largely forgotten historical figure against the backdrop of two fledgling romances." "-Kirkus Reviews"
