The MasterpieceThe Masterpiece by Fiona Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. The story is set in two time periods 50 years apart in NYC and it revolves around Grand Central Terminal. In the 1920’s the terminal was beautiful and it’s history is told throughout the book. In the 1970’s the terminal is anything but beautiful and is on the verge of being torn down. There are two main characters in the book, one for each timeline, and they are strong intelligent women. I love books about NYC and this one has been meticulously researched. I was lucky enough to visit NYC a couple of years ago and I already had a fascination with Grand Central Terminal and it’s restoration as well as Jackie Kennedy’s involvement with it. I took an excellent guided tour there so it was interesting to read about many of the things mentioned in the tour as well as learn so many more facts. I found this book to be well written and the twist at the end really completed it.
