The Glass Ocean Reviews
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
HOLY CRAP THIS SOUNDS AMAZING
The alternating POV chapters in this didn't really work for me, because I didn't like Caroline, I was meh on Tess, and I liked Sarah a lot, but her story obviously got the least amount of attention. I would have happily just read a novel about her. The rest was sort of disappointing.
This was between 3 and 4 stars. I'm not sure if I'll be rounding up or down. I like Karen White as an author. I've read many of her books. I love her way with words and her stories. I've read fewer books by Beatriz Williams. She tends to be a little too 'sweet' for me. I found that to be true here also. Everything was tied up a little too perfectly. And the 180 that Robert does at the end, just was not in any way believable. But someone wanted a red bow for him too, so 'poof' he got one.

There is so much to love in this beautifully written book! The glamour and sinking of the Lusitania, espionage and a love triangle. I loved reading the three different viewpoints in the story. Williams, Willig and White knocked it out of the park with The Glass Ocean!
4.5 rounded up to 5 brilliant Stars over the Glass Ocean!
Several theories are still argued surrounding the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915. Was she merely a British passenger ship sailing back to England through dangerous waters during their war with Germany? Was she also carrying active munitions or just shells as was stated on the ship's manifest? What caused the second blast on the opposite side of the ship directly after the torpedo hit? Some questions have been answered, some are still lef ...more
I've given this a B+ for narration and a B for content at AudioGals.
Three authors, three main characters, three narrators; The Glass Ocean is a dual timeline story from the pens of the 3Ws – Williams, Willig and White – that weaves together interconnecting stories featuring three very different woman in two different time-periods almost a century apart. I have no idea which author penned which character – and apparently it’s a very closely guarded secret – but the narration is clearly assigned, ...more
