I loved this book!! It follows the story of Esther who is a high risk analyst at a very high profile bank. Her ability to see trends and decipher some kind of pattern in her bank’s behavior alerts her that something heavy will affect the stock market and result in a 2008 mirror effect of today’s economy. She goes to her bosses with her urgent intel, only to find out that they have an escape plan for what’s coming, and she’s not part of it.
Among the constant urgency that can be felt throughout the book are two additional subplots: one is that her brother was in a very tragic accident that left him in a nursing home and she is the only survivor in her family to take care of him. Due to his dependency on her, she is forced to deal with some painful memories from their childhood. And in addition to visiting him on a regular basis, she also meets a man who has quite an effect on her, and helps her learn to let go of some things and to love again.
I enjoyed the overall story line, even though I’ll admit, some of the banking and economical words were over my head. But even for a layperson reading this novel (hoping it’s not prophetic!), it’s a simple read with depth page after page. I would definitely read another book by this author.
