Rachel Hauck The Fifth Avenue Story Society

By Kelly Bridgewater

An invitation to join The Fifth Avenue Story Society gives five New York strangers a chance to rewrite their own stories.

Executive assistant Lexa is eager for a much-deserved promotion, but her boss is determined to keep her underemployed.

Literature professor Jett is dealing with a broken heart, as well as a nagging suspicion his literary idol, Gordon Phipps Roth, might be a fraud.

Uber driver Chuck just wants a second chance with his kids.

Aging widower Ed is eager to write the true story of his incredible marriage.

Coral, queen of the cosmetics industry, has broken her engagement and is on the verge of losing her great grandmother’s multimillion-dollar empire.

When all five New Yorkers receive an anonymous, mysterious invitation to the Fifth Avenue Story Society, they suspect they’re victims of a practical joke. No one knows who sent the invitations or why. No one has heard of the literary society. And no one is prepared to bear their deepest secrets to a roomful of strangers.

Yet curiosity and loneliness bring them back week after week to the old library. And it’s there they discover the stories of their hearts, and the kind of friendship and love that heals their souls.

My Thoughts:

Rachel Hauck is a wonderful writer who really dives into the emotionl realm of her characters, who in turn cause a reaction in her readers. I loved her story The Writing Desk, so I couldn't wait to read The Fifth Avenue Story Society. What starts out as a story with five complete strangers morphs into something pretty amazing by the end of the story. I really liked how Hauck reminds the reader that our story isn't complete. We may be in the middle of the biggest disaster in our lives, but the story can change. Include God and the story will be even better. I liked seeing these five people come to know each other better and even start using the skills of the other players to help them come out of their depression. This was a wonderful story, and I can't wait to purchase it and place it with my other Keeper Hauck novels. I think fans of Hauck's other novels and James Rubart novels might enjoy this novel. I really am looking forward to what God leads Hauck to create next.

I recieved a complimentary copy of The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck from Thomas Nelson Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Purchase The Fifth Avenue Story Society
