Might it be remembered: The Forgotten Palace by Alexandra Walsh

#TheForgottenPalace #NetGalley

Boldwood Books is a wonderful source of titles in a variety of genres. An added bonus is that they are very reasonably priced.

The Forgotten Palace is a novel that takes place in more than one time period. This earlier story takes place in 1900 and its second time line is the present day. There is also the character of Ariadne who lived in ancient times.

In one time line (1900), a young woman, Alice, wants to escape a scandal. When the opportunity to go on a Grand Tour is offered, she eagerly says yes. Interesting things happen on a train and Alice travels to Crete. This was a period of archaeological digs so much is going on there.

In the present day, Eloise, is thought of as a grieving widow; however, she is anything but. When she has the opportunity to travel to Crete, just like Alice, she is eager to go. What will happen when their stories intersect? And how will Ariadne have a role in the story? Read this one to find out.

Readers should know that this is a “timeslip” novel. If you are a fan of the genre, this will be an enjoyable read. The evocative settings and fascinating plot lines will have readers quickly turning the pages.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Boldwood Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
