Centered on The Dakota, one of New York City’s most famous residences, this compelling novel deftly intertwines two stories that take place 100 years apart. In 1884 Sara Smythe has struggled to become head housekeeper at London’s Langham Hotel when she is offered the chance of a lifetime to come to New York and manage The Dakota, just opening in the wilds of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. In a parallel storyline, Bailey Camden finds herself in 1985 to be desperate for new opportunities. Fresh out of rehab, the former party girl and interior designer is
homeless, jobless, and penniless. One hundred years apart, Sara and Bailey are both tempted by, and struggle against, the golden excess of their respective ages and take refuge and solace in the Upper West Side’s gilded fortress.
