Every once in a great while I find a book that really speaks to me at the time I need it and this is one such novel. The main character, Eve, leaves the confines of her safe life in Ohio to move to Greenwich Village, a place that was incredibly special to her deceased mother. Upon arriving in the village, Eve finds that the romanticized community of the 60's is no longer, leaving her a bit disillusioned. Through various sets of circumstances she is forced to find her own community which involve the ghost in her apartment -- a former Beatnik writer, a lady who runs a thrift shop, and an eccentric old designer.
Throughout the entirety of the novel, Eve is not only confronted by the ghost living in her apartment, but also by the ghosts of her past -- that of her mother, her small town life, and old friends who aren't true friends.
This novel is about Eve confronting her past, chasing down her destiny and finding her most authentic self.
Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this book for review by the author and TLC Tours. The thoughts and opinions in this post are my own.
