Time for a little historical fiction. Fiona Davis uses New York City landmarks as the center piece of her novels. The landmark is mixed with a recent mystery to add a twist to the novels. In The Address the historic apartment building the Dakota is the center piece.
When the building is nearing completion Sarah Smythe arrives from England to become the manager of the building. She was offered the job after rescuing one of the architects children from injury at a hotel in England and imagines her life and fortunes will be better in New York City. Her life is tied to the architect and spins out of control ending in a dire situation she could never imagine. A hundred years later Bailey is trying to get her life back under control and in the Dakota finds evidence that she might be related to Sarah Smythe and her architect. A story of love, family, betrayal, and finding the truth no matter how painful.
