Fiona Davis, author of The Dollhouse, returns with a compelling novel about the thin lines between love and loss, success and ruin, passion and madness, all hidden behind the walls of The Dakota, New York City's most famous residence. After a failed apprenticeship, working her way up to head housekeeper of a posh London hotel is more than Sara Smythe ever thought she'd make of herself. But when a chance encounter with Theodore Camden, one of the architects of the grand New York apartment house The Dakota, leads to a job offer, her world is suddenly awash in possibility--no mean feat for a servant in 1884. The opportunity to move to America, where a person can rise above one's station. The opportunity to be the female manager of The Dakota, which promises to be the greatest apartment house in the world. And the opportunity to see more of Theo, who understands Sara like no one else . . . and is living in The Dakota with his wife and three young children. In 1985, Bailey Camden is desperate for new opportunities. Fresh out of rehab, the former party girl and interior designer is homeless, jobless, and penniless. Two generations ago, Bailey's grandfather was the ward of famed architect Theodore Camden. But the absence of a genetic connection means Bailey won't see a dime of the Camden family's substantial estate. Instead, her "cousin" Melinda--Camden's biological great-granddaughter--will inherit almost everything. So when Melinda offers to let Bailey oversee the renovation of her lavish Dakota apartment, Bailey jumps at the chance, despite her dislike of Melinda's vision. The renovation will take away all the character and history of the apartment Theodore Camden himself lived in . . . and died in, after suffering multiple stab wounds by a madwoman named Sara Smythe, a former Dakota employee who had previously spent seven months in an insane asylum on Blackwell's Island. One hundred years apart, Sara and Bailey are both tempted by and struggle against the golden excess of their respective ages--for Sara, the opulence of a world ruled by the Astors and Vanderbilts; for Bailey, the free-flowing drinks and cocaine in the nightclubs of New York City--and take refuge and solace in the Upper West Side's gilded fortress. But a building with a history as rich--and often tragic--as The Dakota's can't hold its secrets forever, and what Bailey discovers in its basement could turn everything she thought she knew about Theodore Camden--and the woman who killed him--on its head. With rich historical detail, nuanced characters, and gorgeous prose, Fiona Davis once again delivers a compulsively readable novel that peels back the layers of not only a famed institution, but the lives --and lies--of the beating hearts within.

This #audiobook tells the stories of two related women living a century apart in New York City‘s Dakota Apartments. I found the story in 1885 more interesting than the one in 1985. The image is from StreetEasy.

Bailey is an alcoholic, when she leaves rehab she tries to pick up the pieces by helping her cousin melinda at The Dakota. This is a Cinderella type tale. It moves back and forth between 1885 and 1985. Bailey finds the history of the Dakota and more. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

This is the first Fiona Davis book I‘ve read, but it won‘t be the last. I loved how the story moved back and forth between 1885 and 1995 as it tells the story about life and mysteries in the historic hotel, The Dakota, in Manhattan. I love when a building or setting becomes one of the characters and The Dakota takes on a life of its own in Davis‘ novel. She also kept me guessing about the characters and their mysterious connections to each other.

Andrew65 I loved this! 8mo

A captivating Bank Holiday Read, all based around relationships in the late 19th and 20th Century in The Dakota Building in New York. I love this book & especially the twists, but did find some of the plotting upsetting 😢 The author played with my emotions but it did make for a totally captivating & engaging story. Can‘t wait to try more from this author! Only frustration really was the ending - wanted to shake some sense into the lead character.

Historical fiction is always my jam, but anything set in Gilded Age NYC? Yes, please. This novel goes from 1880s New York to 1980s New York, centered around the historic apartment building The Dakota. I preferred the 1880s chapters, but I loved how the two women‘s stories became intertwined.

TheFunkyBookworm Overall I enjoyed this book but the modern day main character (I can‘t remember her name) really annoyed me lol 1y

Duel storylines —

The first storyline delves into the societal mores of the 1880‘s and life at “The Dakota”... so interesting and how Sara actually ended up in a madhouse is terrifying.

The second storyline in the 1980‘s was just okay couldn‘t really connect properly with Bailey, I didn‘t find her very likeable. I did like how it all came together in the end even if I did guess the very clever subtle twist early on.

I saw “The Dakota”, while in NYC and it is beautiful...it gives added depth to the book experience because it makes it easier for me to visualize the people, time and place in this story. The history of this building is very interesting and it‘s amazing how it has remained so exclusive for almost 150 years.

I‘d like to know why these particular people were declined?? It appears even the rich and famous can‘t acquire everything thing they want.
