Each of the three Schuyler sisters has her own world-class problems, but in the autumn of 1966, Pepper Schuyler's problems are in a class of their own. When Pepper fixes up a beautiful and rare vintage Mercedes and sells it at auction, she thinks she's finally found a way to take care of herself and the baby she carries, the result of an affair with a married, legendary politician. But the car's new owner turns out to have secrets of her own, and as the glamorous and mysterious Annabelle Dommerich takes pregnant Pepper under her wing, the startling provenance of this car comes to light: a Nazi husband, a Jewish lover, a flight from Europe, and a love so profound it transcends decades. As the many threads of Annabelle's life from World War II stretch out to entangle Pepper in 1960s America, and the father of her unborn baby tracks her down to a remote town in coastal Georgia, the two women must come together to face down the shadows of their complicated pasts.

A bit of history and a bit of romance. Nothing earth shaking here...but it was good storytelling and it was a pleasant read.

I really wanted to like it but I've found it bland and shallow. One of those pink syrupy romance novels which are easily predictable.

I have no clue why they call the book historical.

You'll be better off reading "All the Light We Cannot See" or "The Night Circus".

Since this is the 3rd book in the Schuyler sisters series, make certain you have read one and two first. Requested from MNLINK

Enjoyable light read. Pepper Schuyler is a great character, Annabelle Dommerich less so and her sections could have been edited down to give some more space to Pepper's story. The version of Germany and France in the late 1930s is VERY much European History Lite; some of Williams' other novels (particularly A Certain Age) are much better on painting an accurate and compelling picture of the era she's writing about.

Really tough to get into. First world problems and glitz that is difficult to relate to.

Loved the story line and characters. I could not put it down!

Another great book by Beatriz Williams. She keeps the plot and characters moving, although she writes in two different time periods. I have enjoyed everything she has written.

One can follow the sun, of course, but I have always thought that it is best to know some winter, too, so that the summer, when it arrives, is the more gratefully received.
