The Address - Book Review (It's a Good One!)

 I have to tell you about this book I just read.
When I saw the cover I thought this will be a nice read, like maybe one of those old fashioned stories I used to read.  Simple stories with one plot and then that's the end.   

But it's a whole different story here.
This book delivers a wonderful, entertaining and "oh no that just didn't happen!" story. 

This story is about Sara coming over to America in the 1880s and Bailey just getting out of rehab in the 1980s. Of course the two stories converge - making a complete story, which Davis does very well. 

Davis' story just carried me along, alternating between the two women in two different time frames. Then there would be a twist that I would not see coming and then another and another. Very enjoyable. There were cultural/social issues that characters dealt with and Davis' did a remarkable job inserting these into the story line and having these issues move the story along. Davis is a good storyteller. 

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Penguin Publishing Group - however, this did not influence my review.  It is so nice to find a good author and I plan to buy her previous book, The Dollhouse.
