Publisher's Summary

A beautiful scarf, passed down through the generations, connects two women who learn that the weight of the world is made bearable by the love we give away....
September 1911. On Ellis Island in New York Harbor, nurse Clara Wood cannot face returning to Manhattan, where the man she loved fell to his death in the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. 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 Center 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?

Beautiful!

This book was very beautifully written and narrated! It held my interest throughout. I absolutely loved the parallels between the Triangle Shirtwaist fire and 9/11. The imagery and the symbolism of the marigolds on the scarf were lovely.

If you like fiction that alternates between two time periods and seamlessly weaves them together, then you will enjoy this book.

One last note: Tavia Gilbert is an excellent narrator! I've listened to several other books she narrated and enjoyed them as well.

Lots of surprises

I enjoyed the historical perspective of this book and the continuous surprises around the corner. I always enjoy a "wrapped up" ending
