"A reckless wager between a tennis pro with a fading career and a drunken party guest--the stakes are an antique motorcycle and an heiress's diamond necklace--launches a narrative odyssey that braids together three centuries of aspiration and adversity. A witty and urbane bachelor of the Gilded Age embarks on a high-risk scheme to marry into a fortune; a young writer soon to make his mark turns himself to his craft with harrowing social consequences; an aristocratic British officer during the American Revolution carries on a courtship that leads to murder; and, in Newport's earliest days, a tragically orphaned Quaker girl imagines a way forward for herself and the slave girl she has inherited."

It took me to the end to understand the connection between the stories taking place at Newport Rhode Island at different periods of time. But the search for love is universal. The author knows the language and style of writing for each period of time in which a storyline happens. Yes, Iove and loss is a maze no matter when you are living.

LOVED it! This is an engaging novel about American lives, the passage of time, and the choices we all make, selfish and unselfish. Highly recommended.
