The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis Book Summary

A Good Morning America Book Club Pick and a New York Times bestseller!
 
“A page-turner for booklovers everywhere! . . . A story of family ties, their lost dreams, and the redemption that comes from discovering truth.”—Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife 

In New York Times bestselling author Fiona Davis's latest historical novel, a series of book thefts roils the iconic New York Public Library, leaving two generations of strong-willed women to pick up the pieces.

It's 1913, and on the surface, Laura Lyons couldn't ask for more out of life—her husband is the superintendent of the New York Public Library, allowing their family to live in an apartment within the grand building, and they are blessed with two children. But headstrong, passionate Laura wants more, and when she takes a leap of faith and applies to the Columbia Journalism School, her world is cracked wide open. As her studies take her all over the city, she is drawn to Greenwich Village's new bohemia, where she discovers the Heterodoxy Club—a radical, all-female group in which women are encouraged to loudly share their opinions on suffrage, birth control, and women's rights. Soon, Laura finds herself questioning her traditional role as wife and mother. And when valuable books are stolen back at the library, threatening the home and institution she loves, she's forced to confront her shifting priorities head on . . . and may just lose everything in the process.

Eighty years later, in 1993, Sadie Donovan struggles with the legacy of her grandmother, the famous essayist Laura Lyons, especially after she's wrangled her dream job as a curator at the New York Public Library. But the job quickly becomes a nightmare when rare manuscripts, notes, and books for the exhibit Sadie's running begin disappearing from the library's famous Berg Collection. Determined to save both the exhibit and her career, the typically risk-averse Sadie teams up with a private security expert to uncover the culprit. However, things unexpectedly become personal when the investigation leads Sadie to some unwelcome truths about her own family heritage—truths that shed new light on the biggest tragedy in the library's history.

A page turner. Enjoyable read kept me up all night . The plot is rich and the family dynamics are complicated, especially they action during the turn of the century at the NYPL. A visit there is now on my bucket list.

The lions of fifth avenue. Strong opening, but very obvious ending.

So predictable. It is no longer edgy or titillating to be gay

The Lions of fifth Avenue. A very enjoyable read

Loved it!. Loved it!

The Lions of Fifth Avenue. Good book worth reading. I gave 3 stars because I figured out the ending pretty early. It was a little predictable, but still an enjoyable read.

Good. Not good

Fiona Davis. Another captivating book byFiona Davis.

Disappointed. Starts off interesting and then becomes unbelievable. Strange twist, that doesn’t seem to plausible give the character development in the beginning.

Could not put it down!. This book is the first book in a long time that held my interest throughout the whole book! It had a rich plot and so many unseen twists I couldn’t put it down. I loved the complicated lives of the characters! Excellent writing!

Strong women are still fighting for their rights. Wow! If you are a woman who is working or not working but have children or thinking of having children then this book will help you decide. I also love the fictional history of the library and famous authors.
