Early praise from bookstores:
“Riveting, thoughtful, and nuanced, The Widow of Wall Street will provide plenty of material for book clubs to ponder as they discuss this complex woman and her story.”—Pamela Klinger-Horn, Excelsior Bay Books (Excelsior, MN)
“Randy Susan Meyers is a master at building tension in seemingly ordinary places. Gorgeously written and completely enthralling,The Widow of Wall Street is a gripping story of scandal and life after devastation.”
— Katie Eelman, Media & Events Director, Papercuts Bookstore (Boston, MA)
Randy Susan Meyers isn’t afraid to dive deep on characters in crisis, especially women. There’s nothing clichéd about her novels—she never oversimplifies, sentimentalizes, or in any way sells the story short. This has been the case with her first three novels and is even more so with her new novel, The Widow of Wall Street.
Phoebe is the widow of the title. She and Jake marry when they are both young, and they succeed together as he conquers the financial world. When Jake’s empire is exposed as a Ponzi scheme, decades later, victims include their own children, as well as Phoebe’s family and closest friends. In addition to the devastation wrought by Jake, questions arise about Phoebe’s role. What did she know, and when? Why did she stay by his side? The Widow of Wall Street is a big, ambitious story, and Meyers’ telling does not disappoint. Readers are held in thrall as we watch Phoebe’s world rise and then collapse. — Kathy Crowley, Belmont Books (Belmont, MA)
