FROM THE AUTHOR OF TEN BEACH ROADAND OCEAN BEACH,A NEW NOVEL OF FOUR FRIENDS-AND A SHARED PASSION THAT COULD CHANGE THEIR LIVES. When the concierge of The Alexander, a historic Atlanta apartment building, invites his fellow residents to join him for weekly screenings of Downton Abbey,four very different people find themselves connecting with the addictive drama, and-even more unexpectedly-with each otherâ€¦ Samantha Davis married young and for the wrong reason: the security of old Atlanta money-for herself and for her orphaned brother and sister. She never expected her marriage to be complicated by love and compromised by a shattering family betrayal. Claire Walker is now an empty nester and struggling author who left her home in the suburbs for the old world charm of The Alexander, and for a new and productive life. But she soon wonders if clinging to old dreams can be more destructive than having no dreams at all. And then there's Brooke MacKenzie, a woman in constant battle with her faithless ex-husband. She's just starting to realize that it's time to take a deep breath and come to terms with the fact that her life is not the fairy tale she thought it would be. For Samantha, Claire, Brooke-and Edward, who arranges the weekly gatherings-it will be a season of surprises as they forge a bond that will sustain them through some of life's hardest moments-all of it reflected in the unfolding drama, comedy, and convergent lives of Downton Abbey.
Wendy Wax, a former broadcaster, lives in the Atlanta suburbs with her husband and two teenage sons, who have turned her into the shortest member of their family.
