Then, while caring for a fevered immigrant whose own loss mirrors hers, she becomes intrigued by a name embroidered onto the scarf he carries…and finds herself caught in a dilemma that compels her to confront the truth about the assumptions she’s made. Will what she learns devastate her or free her?

September 2011. On Manhattan’s Upper West Side, widow Taryn Michaels has convinced herself that she is living fully, working in a charming specialty fabric store and raising her daughter alone. Then a long-lost photograph appears in a national magazine, and she is forced to relive the terrible day her husband died in the collapse of the World Trade Towers…the same day a stranger reached out and saved her. Will a chance reconnection and a century-old scarf open Taryn’s eyes to the larger forces at work in her life?

A great book about two different stories at two different times but so many similarities.
I liked this book very much. It was my first audio book after having surgery. It was nice to have a story read to you. I became interested in the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911. The historical photographs and individual stories are very interesting. We know much more about Sept. 2001. One question I did have: What was the significance of the inspector and the necklace and the trip to the boarding house to retrieve Lilly's trunk? Did it really add or subtract anything from the story? I liked Edmund's part and how he helped Clara conquer her fears. Overall, a great story!

Great story, great narration
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very well written. The story of the two women with similar stories 100 years apart captivated me. I loved the way the storyline weaved between them. I liked the way the story was unpredictable and had some twists and turns. I also loved the deeper message. The narration was excellent. Tavia Gilbert brought the book to life. I even cried in a couple of places because of the emotion that she conveyed was so realistic. I highly recommend this book and her other books Mercy and A Charmed Life.

I loved this book!
I loved this book! The sweet story of 2 parallel lives in different times was fascinating. The story of love and loss of both of the main characters touched my heart to the point of tears several times.
