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 century&;two deep in the past, one in the present&;to the doomed passenger liner, RMS Lusitania.

May 2013Her 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 Alzheimer&;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. . . .

April 1915Southern belle Caroline Telfair Hochstetter&;s marriage is in crisis. Her formerly attentive industrialist husband, Gilbert, has become remote, pre-occupied with business . . . and something else that she can&;t quite put a finger on. 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 United States 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.
