For fans of I Don't Know How She Does It and The Devil Wears Prada, a smart, funny novel about a woman struggling to have it all. In 2008 Isabelle, a 30-something Wall Street executive, appears to have it all: the sprawling Upper West Side apartment, three children, a handsome husband, and a job as managing director of a large investment bank. But her reality is something else. Belle is losing respect for her stay-at-home, spendthrift husband, the markets are threatening to annihilate world financial order, and her ex-fiance, the guy she never quite got over, comes back into her life as her largest client, offering her a tempting glimpse of how their life together could have been.
Written by Wall Street insider Maureen Sherry who saw plenty of bad behaviour up close, Opening Belle is an unconventional love story and a revelatory, perceptive and funny account of what life is really like for women working in the hardball, high-stakes world of high finance.
