“Elizabeth Noble is back with another winner. We get to see bits of the lives of several people in one building in Manhattan -- relationships beginning and ending, including everything that happens in between. This isn't a fluff read, as Noble weaves some pretty powerful emotions into these neighbors' tales. You'll want to know what happens with everyone!”
-- Jackie Blem, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO


Description

What makes a house a home?

For Eve Gallagher, home is miles away in England since she and her husband relocated to an apartment building on New York's Upper East Side. And life isn't coming up roses.

What makes a neighbor a friend?

Violet has lived in the building for decades, but she's always kept herself apart, until Eve's loneliness touches her heart.

What makes a wife a lover?

Jason Kramer in apartment 6A is no longer sure he loves his wife, but he's head over heels for Rachel Schulman in 6B.

What makes the girl next door the woman of your dreams?

Meeting Emily Mikanowski from 3A turns Trip Grayling's world upside down. It's love at first sight, but he needs help from Charlotte, the shy romance novel addict in 2A, if he's going to get his girl.

What they all have in common is an address, but it is also a home where their lives and secrets intertwine. Come in and enjoy this bittersweet story of friendship and love.
