The Widow of Wall Street (Hardcover)
This book kept me up way past my bedtime. It's that rare combination of page-turner and thought-provoking. Meyers brings a wonderful sense of tension and timing to well-drawn characters, and the result is like watching a train-wreck. You can't look away. I loved it.— From Ellen's Picks
The seemingly blind love of a wife for her husband as he conquers Wall Street, and her extraordinary, perhaps foolish, loyalty during his precipitous fall, is expertly explored in this "ripped-from-the-headlines story about love, ambition, and forgiveness" (PopSugar)--perfect for fans of the TV show Billions. Phoebe recognizes fire in Jake Pierce's belly from the moment they meet as teenagers. After they marry and he creates a financial dynasty, she trusts him without hesitation--unaware his hunger for success hides a dark talent for deception. But when Phoebe learns her husband's triumph and vast reach rests on an elaborate Ponzi scheme, her world unravels. While Jake is trapped in the web of his deceit, Phoebe is caught facing an unbearable choice. Her children refuse to see her if she remains at their father's side, but abandoning him feels cruel and impossible. From penthouse to prison, with tragic consequences rippling well beyond Wall Street, Randy Susan Meyers's latest novel exposes a woman struggling to survive and then redefine her life as her world crumbles. "An engrossing emotional journey" (Kirkus Reviews) and USA TODAY bestselling author Diane Chamberlain raves, "With all the suspense of a thriller, The Widow of Wall Street quickly pulled me into the story and didn't let me go until the last page.
