Welcome to River Street
"Welcome to River Street." A collection of disturbing and intriguing short stories by Amy M. Levy. You must be new here. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Come, meet your neighbors... That's Michelle Bradley. She moved to Portland from rural Maine after a promotion, and she lives down the block. She's had it rough these past few weeks. There was something wrong at her apartment building, problems with the manager I heard. After she was fired-two days before Christmas no less-her past came back to haunt her. Things have gone from bad to worse to disastrous. Why, it'd be enough to drive anyone a little crazy. Michelle says everything will be wonderful, now there's a new man in her life, one who is ready to take her away from all her troubles. Maybe you'll be the first to meet him. I know we're all dying to. Over there is the woman who lives downstairs from you. She's nice, if a bit quiet, and her children are perfect little angels. I would avoid that boyfriend of hers, though, if I were you. And for Heaven's sake, don't mention the noise. It's too bad you probably won't get the chance to know Cynthia King. She really is a lovely young woman. I hear she'll be leaving us quite soon. Still, it might be worth knocking on the door of that old Victorian, just to say "hello." Welcome to River Street. May you always have a home.

At first I was confused as to why the first story is presented out of order. However, once I got the hang of it I could see the reason in that it only added to the plot. I liked how it was written and it moves along. I also loved the other two stories, but the first one is really the winner. Read full review
