A Fall of Marigolds

41HYSZdVToL (1)A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner is just the kind of book I like: historical fiction meets modern times with a mysterious twist. Most of this book takes place in 1911 and centers around Clara, a nurse, whose new love interest (really just an interest on her part) perishes in the Triangle Shirtwaist fire. To flee the pain of Manhatten, she moves to Ellis Island to take care of sick new immigrants. Framing this story is the story of Taryn, who loses her husband on 9/11. While the stories are seemingly unconnected, we know a scarf ties them together somehow. This was definitely a story to get lost in and one I thoroughly enjoyed.
