    I would describe this as primarily a mystery of family lineage with the thrill of untangling the relationships of the characters in the past set over three different time periods. Secondly, I describe this as a romance. Each of the main characters has their own romantic relationship that is flourishing. Summary: In 1914, heiress Aurelie seeks to restructure her future while war breaks out. In 1942, Daisy joins the resistance though her husband ...

    3.5 starsI've been wanting to check out a book by this trio of authors for awhile now because I have enjoyed some of the solo efforts of writers Beatriz Williams and Karen White. I'm not sure how they broke down the writing duties for this one but I was really impressed how it felt like a cohesive story and not three different styles of writing. This might not make my list of top historical fiction reads but it certainly was a good story and I de...

    Three women, three different time periods, three different situations, but they all find the Ritz of Paris to be their comfort zone.We meet Aurelie in 1914 who lived at the Ritz with her mother. She needed to get away and had the perfect excuse. She drove her fiancée to the front, and on her way back, her car was shot up. She thankfully was near her father’s estate and walked there to only find she would be stuck there because the Nazis had ar...

    All the Ways We Said Goodbye was so good! It was written by not one, but three fantastic authors. This story takes three POVs, by three women in three different timelines, with the Ritz Hotel in Paris at the center of each of their stories.This was such a beautiful story, and it captivated me right away. A beautiful story woven through the timelines of WWI 1914, WWII 1942, and post-war 1960s. I just loved this book so much, and recommend it to hi...

    / 5I am thoroughly impressed with All the Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig and Karen White. I mostly listened to it on audio and I loved the three narrators; I thought they each did an excellent job of reading their characters. If you gravitate towards historical fiction novel with strong female leads then look no further, All the Ways We Said Goodbye has that and more. It was such an intricate plot that spans three differe...

    4.5 rating rounded upAll The Ways We Said Goodbye is another gem by the writing team of Willig, Williams, and White. Each strong writer tells the tale of one of the three female characters set in: 1914, 1942, 1964. As this writing team has done in two earlier works, the joint effort works seamlessly and effectively. While two of the three timelines take place during World Wars, the focus is on the strong women who are trying to survive versus the...

    It's 1914 in Paris and Aurelie leaves her plush surroundings at the Ritz to head to her father's estate. Once she gets to her father's very old, yet still impressive castle, it doesn't take long for the Germans to come and declare this location as their newest headquarters. This is obviously a tough pill to swallow, but she recognizes one of the German soldiers as Max Von Sternburg. Aurelie knows Max from a very different time in Paris where she ...

    Set amid three different time periods (1914, 1942, and 1964), All the Ways We Said Goodbye follows Aurélie the French heiress, Daisy the Resistance fighter, and Barbara/Babs the widow. How do their three stories intertwine?"Some women are lost in the fire, and some are built with it."First of all, since so much of this story occurred at the luxurious Ritz Hotel in Paris, I took a few minutes to google it and ogle the extravagant photos. Oooooh l...

    All The Ways We Said Goodbye is a sweeping family saga of three strong females and their heroic men that’s centrally located in different time settings at The Ritz of Paris Hotel and a beautiful century’s old French Chateau. This book easily transported me back in time to each different era. I didn’t want to put it down.

    This is a 3 part story, and I did feel that it either could have been longer or sorry one person should have been left out. I wanted more!In 1914 there is noblewoman Aurelie, from an illustrious line, that keeps a locket with Jean of Arc's blood as a talisman. I did want more of her story. The German's take over her castle, she falls in love with one as she knew him before the war. Though she is just as much playing him for information. It was ju...

    A well written historical fiction/family-drama fusion. All the Ways We Said Goodbye has three different point of views (with Daisy's being by far my favorite) in three different time periods—World War I, World War II, and post-World War II 1960s. As the story unfolds, the three narrators, Barbara (Babs), Aurelie, and Daisy find that they have a lot more in common than they think. I really loved how the story unfolded, but quickly realized tha...

    Having really enjoyed the previous collaboration of these three authors on The Glass Ocean, I assumed this book would be a winner, and indeed it was. It is primarily a family saga— a complex and intricate one featuring not one but two commendable war heroines—with dashes of mystery, romance, and espionage.I’ll be very curious to learn how the writing process worked amongst the three authors (anyone seen an interview on this yet with any of ...

    Wow this book is excellent! It weaves together three different stories from three different times. It was really hard to put it down. I did have to take notes to keep the characters straight but that’s mostly because it’s harder to flip back in an ebook. I really love historical fiction especially about WWII and this book was so good.I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This book was received as an ARC from HarperCollins Publishers - William Morrow in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.I have read a lot of Historical Fiction novels focusing on the German Nazis and all the countries they have invaded during the Holocaust. But this one was a time traveler and a romance story as well as some history influence of Paris in 1914, 1942, and 1964 and all l...

    I have read books from all of these authors. They are famous for their time period books, which I am a fan of. This book is the perfect one for fans of time period stories as well as any of these authors. In the beginning I was drawn to Daisy's story the most but as I got to know the other women better, you could say that it was a tie by the end of the story. Each woman grew bolder and made their stories their own. With three different storylines...

    I believe I’ve developed an addiction to these dual timeline historical fiction masterpieces from Beatriz Williams. All The Ways We Said Goodbye sucked me in from the very first page and kept me captivated. Babs to Daisy to Aurelie were all three dynamic, formidable, and flawed women that made me fall in love with their stories and lives.

    I absolutely loved this book! Historical fiction is my favorite genre and I’ve read a lot of it. One of my earliest introductions to the genre were the Pink Carnation series written by Lauren Willig. So when I saw All the Ways we Said Goodbye, I had to read it!Synopsis:The novel follows the lives of three women in France, each during a different time period: WWI, WWII, and the 1960s. What do they all have in common? Paris, the Ritz, and….the ...

    I love historical fiction and this has to be one of all-time favorites! The three authors did a fantastic job! It’s the story of three very strong and courageous women during three different periods of time. The story takes place during WWI, WWII, and the 1960’s. It tells the story of sacrifices, love, betrayal and the horrors of war. I received an ARC of this book and this is my honest review of it. I’m so glad I received this book!!

    Powerhouse authors Beatriz Williams, Karen White, and Lauren Willig have teamed up for their third collaboration, a triple timeline story about three women whose lives are inexplicably bound up in the somewhat tragic history of Paris’ Ritz Hotel. The sweeping tale spans fifty years, introducing readers to Aurelie, Daisy, and Babs as they discover who they are and how they fit into the ever-changing world they inhabit.Aurelie has spent most of h...

    This is the 3rd collaboration for these authors, and while you don’t need to read the others to understand this story, there are tie-ins to the previous books. .....This story has 3 timelines all set in France and featuring the Ritz Hotel, but each from a different character’s perspective: Aurelie during WWI, Daisy in WWII, and Barbara 20 years after. What ties them together is a relic of the de Courcelles family - a piece of cloth dipped in ...

    Let me start off by saying I am a huge fan of these three authors and together they are absolute gold. I really enjoyed their other 2 collabs. The Forgotten Room still remains my favorite. All The Ways We Said Goodbye checked a lot of boxes for me. The book historical fiction which is my favorite genre. A bit of mystery is woven in for those of you who like a good mystery. Now that I think about it: there is some romance as well. The trifecta lol...

    Interesting historical fiction, spanning three time periods, mainly in France: World War 1, World War 2 and the mid-1960s, with a focus on three women, with interconnected lives, and all revolving around the Ritz Hotel in Paris. Since three authors collaborated on this novel, I assume each author wrote the various chapters for one of the three women main characters. The book’s chapters jump around from one woman/time period, so at first I had a...

    I received this copy (an in hand paper copy) as a giveaway from Goodreads. I thought winning was the exciting part until I read the words within these covers & realized THAT was the exciting part. I enjoyed the 3 viewpoints that this story was written from within the 3 time frames. It was a seamless transition each time. The story had the perfect amt of love, action, history, and espionage. I found myself thinking of the characters when I was not...
