Story with a Unique Premise -- The Fifth Avenue Story Society

The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck is an intriguing story with a very unique premise. What may seem at the very beginning to be a collection of somewhat disjointed accounts of unrelated events in the lives of mismatched people soon begins to come together in a fascinating way. 

The characters are well developed and drive the story. Each person brings his or her own complicated past into the society, without really understanding the baggage they are carrying or what to do with it. Several twists and turns along the way keep things moving at a very engaging pace. There is a somewhat subtle spiritual journey that shows itself specifically through one character and then spills over to the others. 

This was the first book I've read by Rachel Hauck, and I found her writing to be very compelling. I highly recommend The Fifth Avenue Story Society to fans of contemporary inspirational fiction.

About the Book:

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 these 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 reveal their deepest secrets to a room full 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.
