    I have never read a book by Camille Di Maio before and when I seen the beautiful cover of this book I just knew that I had to read this one! I am happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this beauty of a book! The story is just as beautiful as that cover! THE WAY OF BEAUTY by CAMILLE...

    A strong 4 stars from me! This was an intriguing, charming and heartfelt story that spans from 1900 ? 1963. We experience the perspectives of two strong, loving and determined women - Vera and Alice. Along the way, we meet many unforgettable characters connected to each of these w...

    Norma, Lindsay and I were lost in the heartwarming feel-good lush coulee reading The Way of Beauty soaking up the warm sun and this fascinating story of two strong women and their lives. The Way of Beauty is a charming, sweet and heartwarming historical women's fiction novel that t...

    Vera Keller was in love with Angelo since she scraped her knee as a child and fell in front of his newspaper stand. Vera thought she would one day be his wife, but realized that her station in life most likely would prevent that from happening. Her father worked as a Sandhog w...

    ????? / 5 Words really cannot express just how much I loved The Way of Beauty by Camille Di Maio. This is a heartfelt historical fiction novel that really pulls at the heartstrings. The Way of Beauty mainly tells the story of Vera and her daughter Alice, but also other ...

    What truly enchanted me when it came to THE WAY OF BEAUTY was Penn Station. Oh, how I wished it was still standing in all its glory. Alas, it had to give way for progress. Luckily, there are still images and like this book, imaginative stories that make Penn Station come to life again....

    What a story! I think I say this every time I read a historical novel, but, I'll repeat myself again - "I am honestly not the biggest historical fiction fan" - BUT, I seem to have found an exception! I'm starting to enjoy historical fiction that is more based in the US and less WWII fo...

    The Way of Beauty is a beautifully written novel. Vera Keller is growing up in NYC in the early 20th century. She falls in love with Angelo Bellavia, whom she had known since she was a child, but her life is turned upside down when he introduces Vera to Pearl - the woman he intends to ...

    I don?t read historical fiction all that often, you guys know I stick to my thrillers with a rom com or some women?s fiction thrown in for some variety, but every time I do switch to a historical novel I wonder why I don?t read more of them?! The Way of Beauty was such a gorgeous...

    This is absolutely one of the best historical fiction novels that I've read in a long time. The characters are well written and believable and the setting of NYC's Penn station is a perfect focal point to tie the two main characters together. Vera is the daughter of German immigran...

    For all of my reviews: 4.5 Stars This story is quite the gem! First and foremost this historical fiction story is a love story, but underneath that it is a whole lot more. This book is essentially broken into two parts. This first half of the book is Vera?s story. She is young...

    I have been a fan of Camille Di Maio's writing ever since her debut, The Memory of Us: A Novel. With The Way of Beauty, she is now three for three with compelling and memorable novels. The entire story was so beautifully written. I felt like I was inside Penn Station watching the ch...

    A strong 4 stars from me! This was an intriguing, charming and heartfelt story that spans from 1900 ? 1963. We experience the perspectives of two strong, loving and determined women - Vera and Alice. Along the way, we meet many unforgettable characters connected to each of these w...

    Norma, Lindsay and I were lost in the heartwarming feel-good lush coulee reading The Way of Beauty soaking up the warm sun and this fascinating story of two strong women and their lives. The Way of Beauty is a charming, sweet and heartwarming historical women's fiction novel that t...

    ????? / 5 Words really cannot express just how much I loved The Way of Beauty by Camille Di Maio. This is a heartfelt historical fiction novel that really pulls at the heartstrings. The Way of Beauty mainly tells the story of Vera and her daughter Alice, but also other ...

    What truly enchanted me when it came to THE WAY OF BEAUTY was Penn Station. Oh, how I wished it was still standing in all its glory. Alas, it had to give way for progress. Luckily, there are still images and like this book, imaginative stories that make Penn Station come to life again....

    What a story! I think I say this every time I read a historical novel, but, I'll repeat myself again - "I am honestly not the biggest historical fiction fan" - BUT, I seem to have found an exception! I'm starting to enjoy historical fiction that is more based in the US and less WWII fo...

    The Way of Beauty is a beautifully written novel. Vera Keller is growing up in NYC in the early 20th century. She falls in love with Angelo Bellavia, whom she had known since she was a child, but her life is turned upside down when he introduces Vera to Pearl - the woman he intends to ...

    I don?t read historical fiction all that often, you guys know I stick to my thrillers with a rom com or some women?s fiction thrown in for some variety, but every time I do switch to a historical novel I wonder why I don?t read more of them?! The Way of Beauty was such a gorgeous...

    This is absolutely one of the best historical fiction novels that I've read in a long time. The characters are well written and believable and the setting of NYC's Penn station is a perfect focal point to tie the two main characters together. Vera is the daughter of German immigran...

    MY REVIEW OF ?THE WAY OF BEAUTY? BY CAMILLE DI MAIO BRAVO to Camille Di Maio, Author of ?The Way of Beauty?, for a Literary Masterpiece and an Absolute Treasure. I loved everything about Camille Di Maio?s novel. From the descriptive historical perspectives of the culture, ...

    For all of my reviews: 4.5 Stars This story is quite the gem! First and foremost this historical fiction story is a love story, but underneath that it is a whole lot more. This book is essentially broken into two parts. This first half of the book is Vera?s story. She is young...

    I have been a fan of Camille Di Maio's writing ever since her debut, The Memory of Us: A Novel. With The Way of Beauty, she is now three for three with compelling and memorable novels. The entire story was so beautifully written. I felt like I was inside Penn Station watching the ch...

    Vera touched my heart from the beginning, the struggle of being so poor and the one light of her life... Angelo. I don't want to spoil things, but Vera's most ardent wish is foiled almost before she realizes how much she wants it, and brings a new friend, who opens her eyes to the suff...

    THE WAY OF BEAUTY is a love story, but what is so charming about it is it's not just a love story between people; this book is a love story to New York City and, in particular, to the original Penn Station. The novel traces two women, Vera and her daughter Alice. It begins in the 1900 ...

    Thank you Get Red PR and Lake Union Publishing for a copy of The Way of Beauty in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. A historical romance that grabbed my heart from the first few pages. Camille Di Maio crafts a beautiful story about love, family, heartache and the women...

    Camille Di Maio has quickly become one of my favourite authors. The Way of Beauty is her third novel and does not disappoint. Di Maio continues to demonstrate her excellent research skills and build that information into a highly readable story. Excellent character development drives t...

    Romantic story about mother (Vera) and daughter (Alice's) quest for love in NYC. Vera had been in love with Angelo since she was a child, so at age 17, she was devastated when he introduced her to his fiancee, Pearl, a suffragette fighting for women's right to vote. For this reason,...

    Oh my! This book! There is so much to love about The Way of Beauty, from the beautiful cover to the amazing story on it's pages. Camille Di Maio has written a beautiful saga about hopes and dreams against the backdrop of New York's Penn Station. I felt as if I was in the story as I rea...

    Vera is a German immigrant who has always loved Angelo, but ends up brokenhearted when he turns out to be engaged. Angelo marries Pearl, a young, fiery suffragette who will stop at nothing to gain votes for women. As Vera begins to nanny Pearl's son, she also rallies behind the suffrag...

    I read The Way of Beauty because I read Ms. Di Maio?s previous two books, The Memory of Us and Before the Rain Falls, and enjoyed them. The Way of Beauty was written for those who enjoy well-researched, well-written women?s fiction with a historical flavor. In Di Maio?s third...

    What truly enchanted me when it came to THE WAY OF BEAUTY was Penn Station. Oh, how I wished it was still standing in all its glory. Alas, it had to give way for progress. Luckily, there are still images and like this book, imaginative stories that make Penn Station come to life again....

    What a story! I think I say this every time I read a historical novel, but, I'll repeat myself again - "I am honestly not the biggest historical fiction fan" - BUT, I seem to have found an exception! I'm starting to enjoy historical fiction that is more based in the US and less WWII fo...

    Camille Di Maio has quickly become one of my favourite authors. The Way of Beauty is her third novel and does not disappoint. Di Maio continues to demonstrate her excellent research skills and build that information into a highly readable story. Excellent character development drives t...

    Romantic story about mother (Vera) and daughter (Alice's) quest for love in NYC. Vera had been in love with Angelo since she was a child, so at age 17, she was devastated when he introduced her to his fiancee, Pearl, a suffragette fighting for women's right to vote. For this reason,...

    Oh my! This book! There is so much to love about The Way of Beauty, from the beautiful cover to the amazing story on it's pages. Camille Di Maio has written a beautiful saga about hopes and dreams against the backdrop of New York's Penn Station. I felt as if I was in the story as I rea...

    I read The Way of Beauty because I read Ms. Di Maio?s previous two books, The Memory of Us and Before the Rain Falls, and enjoyed them. The Way of Beauty was written for those who enjoy well-researched, well-written women?s fiction with a historical flavor. In Di Maio?s third...
