Book Review: The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck


About the Book



Book:  The Fifth Avenue Story Society

Author: Rachel Hauck

Genre:  Contemporary Romance/ Women’s Fiction

Release Date: February 4, 2020



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

The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck brings people from different walks of life together but they have no idea who brought them together or why. But they decide to continue meeting to figure out the mystery. In a society that is so busy and so ephemeral with online existences, this novel points out the power of human connection as an agent for change and it’s use by our Creator for heavenly purposes. Heartbreak and loss, separation and betrayal, acclaim and integrity— this novel deals with so many topics and emotions. It is a brilliantly executed piece of fiction, weaving together the stories of seemingly unrelated people as only Ms Hauck can. I highly recommend this novel. I was already a fan of this author but I have to admit this is her most ambitious and most successful novel yet. Loved it from the very first page! I received a digital copy of this novel from the publisher with no obligations. These opinions are entirely my own.
