The setting of the story is the well-known Barbizon Hotel in New York City. While living there with her married boyfriend, a journalist named Rose becomes intrigued with the history of the building and its former inhabitants. During the course of her research for a story, Rose uncovers a dark secret involving an elderly woman named Darby who came to New York fifty years earlier who still resides at the Barbizon.
Rose feels an inexplicable connection to the historic building, its former residents, and the mystery surrounding a woman who fell to her death from a Barbizon terrace five decades prior.
This is Davis’s first novel; a page-turner worthy of praise. It kept me guessing and I enjoyed every minute if it!
