Miranda I agree wholeheartedly!

message 2: by Gail (new)

Gail You nailed it! Clara was such a drama queen I really didn't care for her.

message 3: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Gilbert You took the words right out of my mouth!

message 4: by Barb (new)

Barb I agree girls, I am so sick of Clara and I wanted to know if anyone felt the same way

message 5: by Lilly Minasyan (new)

Lilly  Minasyan I disagree with you. You can't measure the pain. And you can't dismiss someone's pain just like that. Why you had the urge to compare both? For some people it is hard to move on emotionally, not only in Clara's case but in general.

message 6: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Okay, I agree that no one should try to measure someone else's pain, but I am just fine being classed with the judgmental who have posted here and feel Clara's relationship saga a bit farfetched.

message 7: by Martie (new)

Martie I'm about 2/3 through and had to find a 2* review to see if anyone else was completely frustrated by Clara! Not only all the falling in love (btw I figured out Edward must be engaged quite early on) but after reading the private letter from Lily and realizing she shouldn't have, she goes on to read the inscription in the pattern book! And although I understood being sad a guy she barely knew died, good golly!!!
I'm going to finish it because I want to hear more of Taryn's story.

message 8: by Erika (new)

Erika Jurado-Graham Agree 100%, I actually stopped halfway through. I could not finish this novel, too unbelievable, too much soap opera drama.

message 9: by Nooshin (new)

Nooshin Right there with you.

message 10: by Seema (new)

Seema Yes just finished it and couldn't agree more. "Drama queen" was exactly what I had in mind.

message 11: by Sherry (new)

Sherry Sharpnack I agree with/ Lilly. If we move
On from the pain of a loss, we are afraid we will move on from the lost loved one.

message 12: by Sue Marie (new)

Sue Marie I agree. Clara's "love" for Edward based on what might have been rang false.

message 13: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Olmstead Totally disagree. Loved the connection between the two eras.

Rachel L. Dittmar I was about to leave almost the same review! Could not agree more! The idea of a scarf meaning so much to so many was very cool,but the story was totally pulled down by Clara.

message 15: by Anne (new)

Anne Burt I found it a stretch to make the thread that ran through a century was a scarf. I thought the Clara story was far more developed than the 9/11 story. It was s fun read !

message 16: by Terri (new)

Terri I agree I thought it was a little silly the story in 1911.

message 17: by C. (new)

C. Totally disagree - remember this girl grew up the Victorian era - sheltered, protected - the fact she was encouraged to go to nursing school and get a job in a different city was remarkable. She read too much into any look a man gave her. She seriously would have benefitted from seeing "He's Just Not That Much Into You"

message 18: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Lister You are aware that the Triangle Shirtwaist Fires did happen, right. No now was held accountable for the deaths of so many.

message 19: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Lister No one was held accountable for the deaths of so many. Typo, oops,

message 20: by Susan (new)

Susan Brochin I am reading it right now and I have a lot of compassion for the main character in the 1911 story. So far I really enjoy the way it is written.

message 21: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Ruckdeschel Agree 100%. I’m sorry but I didn’t like Clara. I kept trying to remind myself that it was a different time in 1911 but I felt that she was over the top the way she reacted and she was very rude to her friends.

message 22: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie I sort of agree about Clara, but then I read the comment above about remembering she is of the Victorian Era. I really liked her friend, Dolly, who seemed very down to earth.
