Publisher's Summary

Phoebe has loved Jake Pierce since childhood, and that love continues without hesitation while she watches him create a financial dynasty. But when Phoebe learns that her husband's triumphs are the result of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, her world unravels. Lies underpin her life and marriage. And as Jake's crime is uncovered, the world obsesses over her. Did she know her gilded life was fabricated by fraud? Did she partner with her husband to hustle billions from pensioners, charities, and CEOs? Was she his accomplice in stealing from their friends and neighbors? In the aftermath of Jake's deception, Phoebe faces an unbearable choice: If she remains at his side, her children refuse to see her, but abandoning the man she loves feels impossible.

Here's a Miracle: Sympathy for Ruth Madoff

Any additional comments?

Well, Meyers did it: she made Ruth Madoff sympathetic, and made too, as much sense as possible of that rat Bernie Madoff...How did "it" happen? By not looking. Not even knowing how to look, perhaps - and certainly, not wanting to look. Back in the day, when this story begins, men's work was men only: women were (just) wives. And later, when "women's liberation" came along, there were still the habits of a lifetime, the compromises and adjustments any couple in a term-term relationship makes... It's easy not to see if what is hidden in the murk, is virtually unimaginable. The Ruth Madoff character was able to change. And that, in a novel - as in life - is a very interesting thing to observe.
