    Fantastic Read: Debut Novel by a First-time Author!!!!!

    Encompassing romance, heartbreak, joy, and survival, this true-to-life account is guaranteed to tug at your heart as you join Doreen on her emotional journey of rediscovering her past and creating her future.
    Mupetson's debut novel provides a poignant and vividly authentic account of the unique experiences as a member of the "post Holocaust" generation, the children of survivors who occupy a curiously precarious position, conflicted between their responsibilities as the children of survivors and their contemporary American lifestyles. This novel provides a much-needed perspective on an issue as intriguing as it is underrepresented in contemporary literature.
    Doreen Lowe navigates her way through the corporate world in the climate of the 90's technological boom through the unique vantage point as junior associate in a small Manhattan law firm. An over-all pleasurable read, this book is perfect for anyone looking for a refreshing read!!!!

    One of the best books I read in the last 5 years!!

    So, I decided to take a chance on a new, unknown writer and what a pleasant surprise. The book grips you from the first chapter. I ended up reading cover to cover and enjoying every page.

    Highly recommended!!

    Unique characters in a unique story

    This is a wonderful read about a NYC women involved in career, romance and friendship yet burdened by her family's ghosts. It is a tale told with wry humor and sucks you in with original characters and surprising plot twists. It also gives you a humorous yet detailed inside look at the tech boom and bust on Wall Street in the late 1990s. Many lessons can be gleaned for our current financial meltdown.
