The challenge presented by this novel for narrator Christa Lewis is portraying a small cast of highly diverse characters. Listeners will be enthralled by her consistent portrayals of these individuals, who seem to have little in common beyond living in the same Brooklyn brownstone. Each tenant is coping with a life-altering crisis just as the son of the elderly landlady threatens them with eviction. Lewis's skills shine in her portrayals, including those of an agoraphobic woman, a mentally challenged young man and his caring sister, and a has-been comedian. The tenants' bonds strengthen as they absorb the ramifications of moving, each longing for a safe haven. Lewis's sensitive performance keeps listeners fully invested in this character-driven audiobook. C.B.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2015]
