The story is told from three viewpoints but two are happening at the same time and together. Opaline’s story is absolutely heartbreaking, fortunately her will was strong. Madame Bowden is hilarious and the perfect touch. I’m glad Martha overcame her obstacles and found her strength and Henry. Book #8 in 2024

Overall interesting, I did feel that it needed a little refinement due to multiple stories happening at the same time.
