Each of the three Schuyler sisters has her own world-class problems, but in the autumn of 1966, Pepper Schuyler’s problems are in a class of their own. When Pepper fixes up a beautiful and rare vintage Mercedes and sells it at auction, she thinks she’s finally found a way to take care of herself and the baby she carries, the result of an affair with a married, legendary politician.
But the car’s new owner turns out to have secrets of her own, and as the glamorous and mysterious Annabelle Dommerich takes pregnant Pepper under her wing, the startling provenance of this car comes to light: a Nazi husband, a Jewish lover, a flight from Europe, and a love so profound it transcends decades. As the many threads of Annabelle’s life from World War II stretch out to entangle Pepper in 1960s America, and the father of her unborn baby tracks her down to a remote town in coastal Georgia, the two women must come together to face down the shadows of their complicated pasts.
Indomitable heroines, a dazzling world of secrets, champagne at the Paris Ritz, and a sweeping love story for the ages, in New York Times bestselling author Beatriz William’s final book about the Schuyler sisters.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ah, Pepper. It is not just a spice.
Beatriz Williams is back with another stunning and time-spanning novel, sure to wow those who love her unique chick-lit-drama-women’s-fiction style.
This book begins in a similar way to “Tiny Little Thing,” in the regard that it jumps right in, setting up the story for the back story that is to come. I enjoyed the curious nature of this novel, switching between time periods and past/current events. I was particularly taken with the main love story in the book, and loved the way the author used dialogue to support the growing feelings between her characters.
If you enjoy books with some depth, and multiple facets to the main characters and their relationships, this will be a perfect read for you. I loved the tenderness between the two main female characters. There is a special bond between them that only strengthens as the book progresses. Beatriz Williams has a talent for creating memorable characters that mature and change throughout her stories.
“Along the Infinite Sea” is a book about growing up, accepting change and sacrificing for the good of the ones you love. It is a brilliant example of an author finding her niche and writing it wonderfully. You will be missing out if you do not pick up a copy.
