Coral, queen of the cosmetics industry, just broke off her engagement and is on the verge of losing her great grandmother's multi-million-dollar empire.
When all five New Yorkers get an anonymous, mysterious invitation to the Fifth Avenue Story Society, they think they may be victims of a practical joke. No one knows who sent the invitations, or why. They haven't even heard of the literary society. No one is ready to bear their deepest secrets to a roomful of strangers.
Week after week curiosity and loneliness bring them back to the old library. It's there where they discover the stories of their hearts, and the kind of friendship and love that heals their souls.
