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?

I couldn't finish it.
NO! Tavia Gilbert's quivering voice was maddening and I couldn't listen to it. I didn't finish the book. The story was soap operaish and contrived.
The narrator's voice shook with phony emotion and she attempted accents that were beyond her capability. As a result, the narration was both silly and grating.
The story had possibilities. Perhaps if it was better narrated I would have enjoyed it more, as the book had been recommended to me by someone whose reading tastes I respect.
It would be better for a narrator to NOT ATTEMPT a foreign accent than to do one badly.
