Terrific First Novel and I Will Be Looking For More

From the opening sentence of THE AFFAIRS OF OTHERS, the reader plunges into the life of Celia Cassill, a young widow who owns a building in Brooklyn and is a landlord with three other apartments besides her own place. We walk with Celia through her experiences with these tenants and learn about their lives and how they embrace the challenges of life.

I loved the craft of the storytelling and the rich characterization in these pages. The eloquent writing held my attention from the opening until the final page.

For a first novel, Amy Grace Loyd has done a masterful job. I highly recommend THE AFFAIRS OF OTHERS and will be watching for her next effort.
