really liked it

"Everything beautiful has a story it wants to tell."
"Beauty is truth, truth beauty."
"Sometimes the expectation is better than the fulfillment."

Susan Meissner's A Fall of Marigolds is a beautifully woven story of two women living in different centuries experiencing horrific, tragic events: The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911 and The 2001 World Trade Centre attack. Both story lines are engaging, emotional and thought provoking. For me, the 1911 plot was most engaging. Both events are skillfully linked by a beautiful scarf.
This fascinating story has strong female characters, love, loss, and eventually recovery. This well written novel 'begs' the reader to ask What if.....
I look forward to reading her next novel.
