The Address

by Fiona Davis
 From the author of The Dollhouse - this story focuses on The Dakota in New York City - The Address by Fiona Davis

Praise For This Book

"Davis has folded together two historical eras in this breezy historical novel that jumps between Gilded Age and Reagan-era New York City... [she] overlays the two histories beautifully. . . The book, rife with historical description and architectural detail, will appeal to design and history buffs alike." - Publisher's Weekly

"Fiona Davis delivers her fans a richly layered historical plot that explores the stories and rumors of one of Manhattan's most prestigious residences: The Dakota. From socialites to failed careers to amazing characters never to be forgotten, this is one of 2017's most glorious NY-based tales and needs to be enjoyed before summer ends." - Brit + Co

"Lively and detail rich-set against the backdrop of NYC's infamous Dakota building - with a thread of mystery that makes it easy to enjoy, hard to put down." - Family Circle

"For fans missing Downtown Abbey, The Address offers 19th-century household drama, though the book is ultimately more in the spirit of Sarah Waters' novels, particularly The Paying Guests and Affinity, and Alexis Coe's Alice + Freda Forever: A Murder in Memphis. The Address is compelling, historically minded fiction with unexpected-and entertaining twists and turns...the novel delights..." - Ms. magazine

"Davis' characters will remind readers that sometimes, we have more in common with strangers than we think." -

"Lively and detail rich-set against the backdrop of NYC's infamous Dakota building-with a thread of mystery that makes it easy to enjoy, hard to put down." - Family Circle

"The Address transported me through the grand doors of the Dakota building, and right into the hearts of its inhabitants. Rich in historic glamour and hugely enjoyable." - Eve Chase, author of Black Rabbit Hall and The Wildling Sisters
