Third grade school teacher Nora Eldridge finds herself enchanted by the new pupil Reza Shahid. She forms a strong bond with his artist mother Sirena, as well as his father, Skandar. Nora is childless and unmarried but her closeness to the family makes her deeply aware of her desires. What will happen to Nora - a woman not living her fullest life?
The Woman Upstairs is beautifully written; Messud's best work!
