"ALL THE WAYS WE SAID GOODBYE is a superbly plotted lover's knot of passion, regret, and betrayal. Willig, Williams, and White expertly spin three narrative threads across two wars and three generations, grounding their trio of very different heroines in the gilded luxury of the Paris Ritz--a place where anything can happen, even a decades-deferred second chance. Atmospheric, twisty, intriguing to the last page!" -- KATE QUINN, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Alice Network
