Summary
The story follows the pursuits of Alex and Ruth, an elderly couple in Manhattan, who are hoping to move out of their five-flight walkup into a highly desirable (albeit highly expensive) “elevator” building in the city. While apartment hunting and having open houses, they must deal with their mixed feelings about their impending move. Mingled with this, their precious dachshund, Dorothy, loses the ability to walk, and they learn that a possible terrorist is loose in the city.
Critique
A quirky little book that at first didn't seem like much but turned out to be quite a story. Likable characters and a little suspense keep you interested and rooting for Alex and Ruth until the end. And then, of course, there's Dorothy! Highly recommend.
