I watched the banking crisis from afar, on my small kitchen television in Nebraska, with a two year old running around. It felt surreal and far away, perhaps how September 11th felt to people outside the Capitol Beltway. This book takes you deep into Wall Street, into the lives of a couple that would be forever changed by the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Two recent college graduates living in a shoebox apartment not even sure if they’re meant to be together deal with some of the most common relationship stresses during extraordinary times. There are secrets, hard decisions, betrayals, and devastating outcomes. Can their relationship survive? I read it in less than 24 hours. It was slow starting and then all the sudden I couldn’t put it down.
