Postcards from The Widow of Wall Street


“When Phoebe and Jake Pierce meet as teenagers, she knows he’s someone on the way up, and she wants to be there as he climbs the Wall Street ladder. He gets everything he ever wanted. When it turns out that Jake’s success rests on a huge Ponzi scheme, Phoebe has to make an excruciating choice.
New York Post ‘Must Read Books’

“ . . .as this compelling story unfolds, you realize nothing is as uncomplicated as it seems.”
Associated Press

“Randy Susan Meyers borrowed a real-life story for the building blocks of her fourth novel, “The Widow of Wall Street,” which chronicles a couple’s marriage as they amass great wealth and then lose it all when the husband is revealed to have committed financial fraud. . .  heartbreaking.”
The Boston Globe

“Full of deceit, scandal, and guilt, her novel expertly explores how rising to the top only to hit rock bottom affects a family. The consequence will leave readers reeling.”
Library Journal

“When the blow falls, unforgiving eyes glare at Phoebe, who’s assumed to be complicit and made a pariah. Though innocent of her husband’s scheme, she’d brought him clients, and she experiences inner whippings of guilt, still loving but also hating Jake. Their children present the impossible choice: Dad or us. It’s torture for everyone. Yet Meyers brings lively, intelligent observations to this wrenching situation.”
The Improper Bostonian

An intoxicating look into the heartbreak and deceit that exist behind the curtain of a shattered family…Meyers is a skilled writer, giving depth and painting a vivid picture from start to finish. Her writing draws readers into the book as if they lived it.
