The Glass Ocean Reviews
Ladies you outdid yourselves. Loved this book, story line was wonderful..excellent writing.
Thank you for an enjoyable read!
Booking passage on the Lusitania or any ship during WWI would not seem like a good idea to me, but Caroline Hochstetter and Gilbert needed to get closer, and figured this would be a wonderful way to help their relationship. Did Gilbert really agree to the reason they were going on the Lusitania or did he have ulterior motives?
Along with Caroline and Gilbert on a ship in waters that German submarines were prowling, we meet Tess, a female thief, who needed to steal valuable music sheets to pay her ...more
4 absorbing stars to The Glass Ocean! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I’m a fan of each of these authors, and when they joined forces previously to co-author The Forgotten Room, magic happened multiplied by three. My brief gushing review of The Forgotten Room is on Goodreads.
The Glass Ocean is a historical mystery blending time and place across three narrators, two a century in the past, and one in the present.
In 1915, Caroline Telfair Hochstetter is a southern belle married to Gilbert, who was once attentive to her ...more
Before the Titanic, there was the tragedy of the sinking of the passenger ship, the Lusitania, which was an event that forced the US into the first World War. In this carefully layered historical fiction novel, authors Williams, Willig and White bring us three stories of three women connected to one another and to that fateful sailing. Find out what I thought of this novel in my latest book review, here. http://drchazan.blogspot.com/2018/09/...
Loved this book!! Told by 2 women in the past and 1 in the present about the doomed Passenger ship...
Hmmm. Still trying to decide about this book 3.5 rounded up. I liked the story. I had a hard time with the characters. I found I really enjoyed Caroline’s and Sarah’s story. Tess fell flat for me. This story was more about the romance and less about everything else. I love all the authors so I will still be going back to their books. This one seemed to fall a bit flat
This book was a 2 rounded up to a 3. My review is going to be different from many that I’ve read so far. This book first had me disliking it, then liking it, then disliking it again. It didn’t help I guess that I had just watched Titanic with my granddaughter for about the 10th time. Here’s what I thought.
There is such an extensive blurb for this book that I will just give you snippets of what the book is about. There are three different narrators, two that will be aboard the Lusitania in the p ...more
Three different narratives, one sinking ship. What is not to love here? This story is centered around the sinking of The Lusitania ship and is told in present day from a writer investigating a distant family member who was aboard, and two women, both of whom are hiding something - albeit very different things! I can say with confidence you will greatly enjoy watching how all three stories converge throughout this beautiful novel.
I received an advance copy. All opinions are my own.
