Floating Staircase by Ronald Malfi is a unique story, told through the main character's experiences, and the eyes of a writer. He has past regrets that haunt his thoughts, and influences his choices. The protagonist has moved into a new home, near his brother, with whom he wants to make amends and build a stronger relationship. The house has a history of tragedy. The character becomes consumed in finding the truth. The ending was a surprise, and left me with an Aha moment. I liked the story, it had some good twists, and did make one think about the wise words, 'don't judge a book by its cover' or 'don't jump to conclusions'. The story builds, so I suggest this to anyone who likes to feel the story develop.
