THE ADDRESS tells the story of two women, a century apart, whose lives are forever altered by their time in New York City’s most famous residence, the Dakota.
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.
One hundred years later, Bailey Camden, an interior designer and former party girl with a complicated family history connecting her to the Dakota, gets an opportunity to oversee the renovation of an apartment in the building. Dismayed by the requested changes to the original design, but desperate for work and distraction from the temptations of the 1980s party scene, she jumps at the chance. As her work begins, she discovers a century-old secret of murder and madness within the building’s walls that just may change her life forever.
