Three women locked in an elevator during a fierce hurricane find that they have one thing in common: the same man. One is the wife; the other the "girlfriend" and the third is a janitress. Under stress their stories come out. A good read. ( )
  CoraJoanBurgett | Aug 10, 2008 |
Three women's lives come under examination as they are drawn to the same office building just before a major hurricane hits their city. One is an career women trying to escape her humble past, one is a jilted wife who wants to confront her husband, and one is a maid who hopes her secrets are buried in the Mexico she left behind to come to the states. What they don't know is what they have in common--which is gradually revealed as the book unfolds and they become trapped in an elevator together.
There are a lot of improbablities to this story that you just have to go with to enjoy it. The elevator repair man makes a climb that sounds near nigh impossible. But it is an interesting set-up and give the author a chance to show her characters doing some real soul searching. A nice read for those who like introspective suspense. ( )
