The Secret Life of Violet Grant
The Secret Life of Violet Grant | Beatriz Williams
“Williams conjures up another substantive beach read steeped in history and familial intrigue.... Readers will love wallowing in the twists and turns of this irresistibly luxurious tale.” —Booklist Passion, redemption, and a battered suitcase full of secrets: the New York Times-bestselling author of A Hundred Summers returns with another engrossing tale. Manhattan, 1964. Vivian Schuyler, newly graduated from Bryn Mawr College, has recently defied the privilege of her storied old Fifth Avenue family to do the unthinkable for a budding Kennedy-era socialite: break into the Madison Avenue world of razor-stylish Metropolitan magazine. But when she receives a bulky overseas parcel in the mail, the unexpected contents draw her inexorably back into her family’s past, and the hushed-over crime passionnel of an aunt she never knew, whose existence has been wiped from the record of history. Berlin, 1914. Violet Schuyler Grant endures her marriage to the philandering and decades-older scientist Dr. Walter Grant for one reason: for all his faults, he provides the necessary support to her liminal position as a young American female physicist in prewar Germany. The arrival of Dr. Grant’s magnetic former student at the beginning of Europe’s fateful summer interrupts this delicate détente. Lionel Richardson, a captain in the British Army, challenges Violet to escape her husband’s perverse hold, and as the world edges into war and Lionel’s shocking true motives become evident, Violet is tempted to take the ultimate step to set herself free and seek a life of her own conviction with a man whose cause is as audacious as her own. As the iridescent and fractured Vivian digs deeper into her aunt’s past and the mystery of her ultimate fate, Violet’s story of determination and desire unfolds, shedding light on the darkness of her years abroad . . . and teaching Vivian to reach forward with grace for the ambitious future––and the love––she wants most.

I. AM. IN. LOVE. I have never loved a narrator more than I love Vivian. I told my husband I now want the first name of our first daughter to be Vivian 😂 She is hilarious!!! I was literally laughing aloud at her jokes.

#TBRtemptation post 4! First in a (so-far trilogy) series. Manhattan, 1964. Recent Bryn Mawr grad Vivian Schuyler bucks Fifth Ave tradition entering the Mad Men world of Metropolitan Magazine. A parcel arrives whose contents concern family history & an aunt wiped from records.

Berlin, 1914. Violet Schuyler Grant endures her rocky marriage to a scientist so as to be a physicist. A British captain offers something else.

A fun novel with two time eras, filled with a touch of suspense and a lot of romance. This was my first novel exclusively by Williams (I read her collaborative work The Glass Ocean earlier), & I am now a fan of her work. Vivian Schuyler is vivacious, sarcastic, and a tad nosy; Violet Grant is intelligent and a woman ahead of her time. Can‘t wait to read more by Williams!

Third day start time for #24B42019 . Making progress in my pile of books. I also realized I probably will not finish War and Peace by tomorrow - even at warp speed listening, there is way too much left, and at 1.75x, the excited Russian characters sound really cartoonish! But, I‘m glad I switched to audio for the first time reading it. I can go back and savor so much later with a strict book read.

Librarybelle I won‘t make 11 hours today for the #11thHourReadathon for the prize competition (I forgot to separate out my time last night for it...oh well!), but I‘ll hashtag this fun readathon as well! @EclecticReaders 7mo

This juicy, dishy book was right up my alley. There's something for everyone here with two time periods (1914 & 1964), major secrets, family history, romance, betrayal, danger, murder, a lady scientist, and a whole lot else to make this an addictive, hard-to-put-down story. This is my first of her historical women's fiction, and I'm kicking myself for having waited so long to finally read her. I can't wait to read the rest of her books!

No Excuses

Professor Grant, Violet's husband, is a bit too controlling if you ask me and a poor “excuse” for a husband.

​You will love the secrets of the suitcase and of Aunt Violet. Who would think a suitcase could cause all this excitement, intrigue, entertainment, and of course a fantastic story?
