“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!”
