A Novel


This “absorbing and memorable novel” (Tom Perrotta) set inthe world of corporate intrigue is about a woman who must choose between herdream job and everything else—her savings, her reputation, and an unexpectedchance at love.

As a corporate “undertaker” for a mergers and acquisitionsfirm in New York, Carol MacLean travels from factory to factory, firingblue-collar workers who remind her of her father and the kids she grew up with.The payoff is huge: if Carol works hard enough, her boss has promised to makeher CEO of one of the firm’s holdings. Just when it seems like her dream mightcome true, on a trip that takes her away from New York to a desperate fishingtown in coastal Massachusetts, Carol gets a call from the office: “You’refired.”

Those words shake Carol to her core. But with the help of the townspeople and a charming local fisherman, she begins to understand the powerof life’s second acts. She becomes determined to save the factory she almostshut down. As Carol throws herself into transforming the company, she mustchoose between the job she has always wanted … and everything else.
