On the surface, twenty-four-year-old Alexandra Kramer seems to have it all together. Confident and headstrong, she’s always made the right choices to please everyone around her, including her wedding to Jamie, a Kentucky native looking to make it on Wall Street.
But against the tides of a changing financial climate, their marriage is shaken to its core—as Jamie is driven into despair by the failure of his company, and Alex begins to contemplate all the safe, traditional decisions she’s ever felt obligated to make.
Putting her plans for Harvard Business School aside, she opts to hit the trading floor instead, with a force unmatched by any of the tough talking male traders out there. And when her enthusiasm catches the attention of Wall Street legend Hank Martin, it’s not long before Alex’s two worlds come to a head—and she’s forced to choose before everything comes tumbling down.
