The Address

51U4jc-WRSL._SY346_The Address, by Fiona Davis, was wonderful! It’s just the kind of book I love – historical fiction, based in truth, with a time back-and-forth, and a dash of intrigue. Sara Smythe emigrates to America in 1884 to work at The Dakota in New York City. Her passage is paid for by The Dakota’s architect, Theodore Camden. 100 years later, Bailey Camden, fresh out of rehab, needs a place to live after being fired from her interior decorating job. Bailey’s grandfather was Theodore Camden’s ward. The apartment (owned by her cousin) where Bailey ends up living (and renovating) was Camden’s apartment, where he was killed by Sara Smythe. While this might seem confusing, it’s actually a well-woven and fascinating story. I now want to read Life at the Dakota: New York’s Most Unusual Address.
