Summary
When the concierge of The Alexander, a historic Atlanta apartment building, invites his fellow residents to join him for weekly screenings of Downton Abbey, four very different people find themselves connecting with the addictive drama, and--even more unexpectedly--with each other... Samantha Davis married young and for the wrong reason: the security of old Atlanta money--for herself and for her orphaned brother and sister. She never expected her marriage to be complicated by love and compromised by a shattering family betrayal. Claire Walker is now an empty nester and struggling author who left her home in the suburbs for the old world charm of The Alexander, and for a new and productive life. But she soon wonders if clinging to old dreams can be more destructive than having no dreams at all. And then there's Brooke MacKenzie, a woman in constant battle with her faithless ex-husband. She's just starting to realize that it's time to take a deep breath and come to terms with the fact that her life is not the fairy tale she thought it would be. For Samantha, Claire, Brooke--and Edward, who arranges the weekly gatherings--it will be a season of surprises as they forge a bond that will sustain them through some of life's hardest moments--all of it reflected in the unfolding drama, comedy, and convergent lives of Downton Abbey
Summary
At the invitation of the building's concierge, four neighbors in an Atlanta apartment building begin weekly viewings of the acclaimed British series together and find themselves relating to the show, and to each other, in unexpected ways
