Built on the Upper West Side, the elegant Breviary claims a regal history. But despite 14B's astonishingly low rental price, the recent tragedy within its walls has frightened away all potential tenants, except for Audrey Lucas. No stranger to tragedy at thirty-two - a survivor of a fatherless childhood and a mother's hopeless dementia - Audrey is obsessively determined to make her own way in a city that often strangles the weak. But is it something otherworldly or Audrey's own increasing instability that's to blame for the dark visions that haunt her, and for the voice that demands that she build a door? A door it would be true madness to open.
