In the early days of World War II, the Lang family lost everything. Eighty years later, it’s time to take it back.
The Nazis have taken control of Austria, and wealthy widower Leopold Lang faces a difficult decision: join the ranks of the foreign power that has taken over his homeland or flee with his children to safety. Leopold makes his choice—but too late. His family is ripped apart, never to be reunited. But decades later, fate brings together the descendants of this broken dynasty in the place where it all began—Falcon Point.
Anna, Cole, and Tess have never met, each relying on fractured pieces of information to understand their Austrian heritage. But when unforeseen opportunities draw these Lang cousins to Falcon Point, they soon discover they are not alone in their quest to claim the coveted property and the fabled treasure hidden within. Unfortunately, another claimant, one with a much darker heritage, is determined to eliminate the Lang family once and for all.
Wow, I have so much running through my head right now and so much I want to say. Most importantly, I loved this book. The whole concept with the four authors and a dual timeline where we start in the past and then spend the rest of the book in the present day was genius. It was like the best of both my favorite worlds- historical fiction and contemporary. There was mystery and adventure, danger and treasure!!. And yes, there was love. It all combined to give me a story that had me invested and interested from beginning to end. The ending had me on the edge of my seat with anticipation. I loved it so much!
Honestly, the historical loving part of me wanted more of the past. I wanted to follow each of the Lang siblings all the way to the end. I wanted "the rest of the story"! (anyone old enough to get that reference there?) We get some details filled in throughout the story but it just wasn't enough for me. Greedy, right? Yeah, I know.
I'm so hopeful that these authors will do more of this. Please let there be more of this. Will anyone write the Lang siblings stories? Please? I know. I'm greedy and I'm a beggar. That's what book love does to you. It makes you a greedy beggar. 😂
Content: peril, some violence, death. Kissing.
