A gorgeous and unforgettable novel set in a turn-of-the-century brownstone on New York's Upper East Side. Meet Eve Gallagher in Apartment 7A, newly moved to New York with her husband. She's lonely and lost…until she meets elderly neighbour Violet, who's concealing a story of her own. The Kramers and the Schulmans in Apartments 6A and 6B are about to find their lives intersecting in a most unfortunate manner when Jason Kramer falls head-over-heels for Rachael Schulman. Jackson Grayling III in Apartment 5A is attracting the attention of a gold-digger in 2B even though he's far more interested in Emily Milanowski in 3B. And finally, self-conscious Charlotte Murphy is crazy about the doorman but too shy to take it any further. No one is left unchanged as the secrets and desires hidden behind closed doors are finally brought into the light.
