Jonathan Garrett lost everything. He and his two best friends, Caleb and Aryl, operated one of the top brokerages in New York City when the unthinkable happened; the stock market crash of '29. And now, with nothing but the clothes on their backs, these men must start over.
But starting over has never been more difficult. The jobs become fewer and danger lurks around every corner. And then when a business rival threatens their existence, despair looms overhead as the men struggle to find a way out.
Meanwhile, their wives, Ava, Arianna, and Claire, slowly adapt to life in a shabby apartment as they learn to deal with their poverty-stricken status. Each begins to cope as they find ways to live more modestly.
Emotional and financial ruin nips at their heels pushing the couples to the end of their ropes. Until finally, with a lucky twist of fate, they escape city life and begin anew in their hometown of Rockport, Massachusetts. But just as they start to relax and settle into their new lives, tragedy strikes again....
This book is the first in The 1929 Series by author M.L. Gardner and promises to be a must read for historical fiction fans everywhere.
