If you are curious as to what is taking place behind the closed doors of New York City’s most influential and powerful people, One Flight Up explores the lifestyle and friendships of four intermingled women working and living in the city.

Characters India, Esme, Abby and Monique are successful women having first met when they all attended the same private school as young girls. As members of high society in New York City with solid careers and relationships with the men in their lives, they each appear to be a part of a perfect situation. But are they? And what will they sacrifice to find out?

Susan Fales-Hill guides the reader through this engaging story as she follows the lives of the four interconnected women. Her writing provides an attractive visual and feel to life and society in New York City. She is up front and open as she not only explores the lives of these four women, but intermingles the importance of friendship, bi-racial issues, fidelity, and, most important, following your heart.
