A Fall of Marigolds

A moving time-travel tale that vaccillates between the two most tragic events in the history of New York City. The story begins in September 2011 with Taryn, who has just lost her husband in the 911 attacks on the World Trade Center. It soon interchanges with Clara, who is a nurse at Ellis Island and has lost a potential suitor in the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911. The two stories are woven together by a sense of love, loss, and hope and are connected physically by a scarf which becomes pivotal in both of women's lives. I found myself fulfilling the author's wish to "keep you up at night" as I stayed up until 3 AM on the night I finished reading the book. I was anxious to learn the outcome for both women. This story is an interesting and believable work of Historic Fiction.  Similar in style to Marie Bostwick's Field of Gold and On Wings of the Morning.  I will definitely read other books by Mrs. Meissner!  Check our Catalog
