The Fifth Avenue Story Society
By Rachel Hauck
Christian Contemporary Romance
Hardcover, Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 400 Pages
February 4th 2020 by Thomas Nelson
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 reveal 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.
Praise for the Book
“Hauck inspires and uplifts with this mix of tales.” – Publishers Weekly
My review of The Fifth Avenue Story Society
Before you do anything else, go put this book on your TBR pile! However you keep track of the books you want to read…whether you add them to Goodreads or you write them down…do it now. You need to read The Fifth Avenue Story Society.
This is a story that you will never forget. Five New Yorkers receive an invitation to join the Fifth Avenue Story Society. Any of them could be any of us. On the surface, they seem very different from each other. An executive assistant, literature professor, senior citizen apartment super, an Uber driver, and a multi-millionaire who almost married a prince. What could they possibly have in common? And what do we have in common with these characters? On the surface…nothing. But, each time the five meet, they realize they are more alike than they thought.
Like we all do, they doubt themselves. They are flawed and hurt and hiding secrets. Sound familiar? Yeah, it does to me too. I felt this story so deeply. The characters’ stories aren’t my stories, but that’s the point. Deep down, we’re the same. We’re scared, and we’ve been hurt. We wonder if we’re doing the right thing. The conversations we have with others are usually superficial when we need to be real. These strangers were able to open up to each other in ways they’d never been able to before.
Was it a coincidence that these five were chosen? Random luck? No. It was divine. God brought them together because He knows what He is doing. Trust Him. And trust me when I say, read this book! It is amazing. I hope that as you read, you see yourself more clearly. And I pray that you’ll find the forgiveness and freedom that God has for all of us.
