The Way of Beauty (by Camille di Maio)…a tale of suffering, conviction, goals, love, loss, and integrity

This was a delightful book. I really enjoyed the history and the connecting lives of the characters. This was a tale of suffering, conviction, goals, love, loss, and integrity. I loved how the story began in the 1960s and then went back to the beginning of the lives involved in this tale. The characters were well developed and you find yourself drawn into their story, cheering and crying, cringing and gasping, falling in love and questioning some of the decisions made. But no matter what your stance, you will LOVE this book!

I found myself looking up various facts stated throughout the book to find out if they were true or not (they always were!). The author did her homework and made this historical story interesting. I learned a lot about the history of the suffragettes, of the sandhogs and building of the tunnels for train travel, and the world in New York during World War I and II.

I loved this story so much that I’ve purchased all of the author’s books. That’s a high statement of praise!

Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange of for an honest review.
