Duration: 12 hours 16 minutes


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 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?

    What a story .rather amazng two stories! like the fabric w marigold s..thw two.storirs were "woven together with care and grace...loved reading this book the Autumm season..the Marigold fabric and image it portrayed and represented stood out..stood strong and bold at times...yet was a soft "glow" in other moments..certainly the contrasting but complimentary colors..the hues of color of the background.olive green leaves perhaps... loved learning more about what the immigrants..their struggles..uncertainty in coming to a foreign land...the histories in both centuries and what those living experienced and those who cared for them

    Susan Meissner is an amazing author. The reader is equally wonderful. My life is enriched after experiencing a book of Susan's pen.

    I loved the storyline set a century apart! Lots of interesting aspects about Ellis Island and the experiences of immigrants as well as medical staff. A great read!

    Enjoyed the story very much, and the narrator did an excellent job using different voices for the characters.
