THE FIFTH AVENUE STORY SOCIETY by Rachel Hauck, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"It's odd how some things have to be broken before their value and worth can be discovered."

When five virtual strangers receive an invitation from an anonymous source to attend the Fifth Avenue Story Society, meeting weekly in an historic reading room of an old library, they tentatively decide that random friendships might be just what they need to caulk together the broken pieces of their lives. Except that two of them used to know each other intimately well, and the other three have experienced the kind of deep wounds that love and regret can potentially cause, even if they won't admit it.

It's quite an interesting story, a bit "carnal" in a couple of places, nonetheless; readers will experience all the ups and downs of the characters' incredible journey towards wholeness.

BackCover Blurb:
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.
