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.

    "sooo Sad,.."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Widow of Wall Street to be better than the print version?

    i have not read the print version...but as the audible version...YES.i would totally loved the audible version..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Widow of Wall Street?

    knowing the details of the similar case of Bernie Madoffs crime...so many emotions while reading this book...from anger, sad, compassionate...and anger again...


    What about Susan Bennett’s performance did you like?

    WONDERFUL!...she pulled off so well and so easy to listen ..


    If you could take any character from The Widow of Wall Street out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    hmmmm, hard one...probably, Phobe...asking her did you really not know...?


    Any additional comments?

    "Well written story of a family"

    I wasn't sure I would like a book where I already knew the ending but I did. The characters are well developed and likeable.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "My trip flew by"
    Would you listen to The Widow of Wall Street again? Why?

    I would. Narrator Susan Bennet is always one of my favorites and the story flew by.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Widow of Wall Street?

    When the crime is revealed; Phoebe's reactions and well as the children's was shattering.


    What about Susan Bennett’s performance did you like?

    Bennett's tone and expression mirrored the emotion of every scene.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I almost drove an extra fifty miles to hear the end.
