“Three historical fiction powerhouses combine efforts to create an enthralling adventure spanning from the onset of World War I to the 1960s, telling the story of three women and their stay at the famous Ritz Hotel in Paris.” -- Book Riot
“A sweeping historical novel about the strength of women who find themselves in impossible situations.” -- Popsugar
“All three of these “team W” writers create engaging characters and complex relationships while setting a tone that matches the story’s time period…The twist at the center of the story is worth the price of admission on its own. A great choice for anyone looking for clever historical fiction with plenty of drama, action, and surprises in every chapter.” -- Library Journal
“Well-researched and cohesively written, this historical novel reflects the strength of these women as they struggle to survive during turbulent times.” -- Orange County Register

“Full of heart and intrigue, the authors' latest collaboration captures women's perseverance and how history connects us all.” -- Booklist
“An elegantly scripted and multi-layered novel that showcases the three co-author's impressive literary skills with narrative driven storytelling, All the Ways We Said Goodbye . . . is an inherently fascinating, multi-generational read from beginning to end.” -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Lots of romance, a good mystery, a plot twist you WILL NOT expect and history with adventure to satisfy just about every reading preference. The prose is rich without being overly descriptive and the dialogue moves the story along at a good clip; almost 450 pages go flying by. There’s no gratuitous violence or sexual content and the language is clean; easily an Hallmark MOTW contender.
If you’re a fan of any of these 3 authors, all three together or just are looking for a good historical saga with a twist, “All the Ways We Said Goodbye” is a wonderful choice📚
No--mimeograph machines could not reproduce pictures. They copied documents from cut stencils--usually cut by typewriters.
The tie in this novel is a place, just like the previous two novels, but this time it is the Ritz hotel in Paris. It is a powerful setting, but not as strong as the women who lived through the difficult times. Babs is a British woman who recently lost her husband and is trying to learn about the woman he lived while a spy in Paris during World War II. Aurelie is a young woman raised in Paris at the Ritz, but who wants to help save France from the Germans, and meets her destiny in her family’s castle as it is occupied by the German army. And Daisy is raised by her Grandmother at the Ritz, and it is through her that she begins working with a spy network in Paris to help Jewish people escape the Nazi’s.
Three women whose stories are united by a hotel. Not just any hotel but the glamorous Ritz in Paris. Set decades apart from one another, during tumultuous times in our world history. The lengths people will go to, especially during wartime, are extreme. As is the strength these women will prove to possess.
The authors have a way of not only luring you into their character’s lives and rooting for a specific outcome, but they also create edge-of-your-seat intrigue, all tied up with a what would you do for love scenario. Or in this case, scenarios.
Three heroines, three timelines, one illustrious hotel, and mais oui, three authors, equals an enthralling work of historical fiction.
I loved how they made an entire novel all about WW 1 & WW 2, which had me nervous and anxious many times, yet didn't describe graphic details of brutality, rape or torture. We all know it happened but I didn't have to read it which I greatly appreciate as that is one of the reasons I generally don't read WW 2 novels. I read to have fun and that other stuff upsets me deeply. This book captured the stress and uncertainties of war time and did it so tastefully that I enjoyed the experience!
As to the story itself, you read about 3 different girls who in the end their stories are all intertwined and connected in ways you start to unravel as you go. There were a few parts of the story I felt were too contrived or not realistic and then there were some other parts that weren't fairytale perfect enough for my tastes! So, who am I to complain and nitpick? I'm not the one sitting there trying to make all 3 stories work and make sense! All in all I think it was a fabulous book and I motored through it rapidly because it held my attention so thoroughly.
Several characters are very witty and made me laugh out loud which is always a good sign if a book can do that! Especially one about war...
I can't wait to see what Team W have up their sleeve next. They are certainly a great Team!
