New York, NY, April 14, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - Throughout history there are stories of women falling prey to wealthy and powerful men, so it’s refreshing when a woman is empowered to exchange a life of materialism for a life of honesty and play a part in her own destiny. This is exactly what the young widow in Deborah Schwartz’s triumphant story, Woman on Top (Laudan Press), does when she goes from vulnerable to empowered to triumphant!
After the heartbreaking death of her physician husband, Kate begins a new career as an attorney to support her two young children. When she finally finds the courage to reenter the dating world, she falls prey to Len, a powerful Wall Street banker. Len’s wealth and influence become the compelling aphrodisiac that draws Kate into his world of private jets, five-star vacations and Cartier jewelry. It’s not long before Len begins to strategically acquire Kate’s heart in the same calculated way he lands multibillion-dollar deals - by pouncing on the vulnerable and taking control.
Lured by the excitement and glamour she finds on Len’s arm, Kate struggles with what he can offer her and her children against what’s really important to her – love, respect and honesty. As Kate searches to find what matters most, she sets off on an extraordinary adventure - climbing to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. When she returns, it is with an open heart and a newfound strength that will allow her to be loved by a good man.
Inspired by events of her own life, Schwartz's thought-provoking read is passionate and persuasive and tough for readers to put down as they anxiously wait for Kate to leave Len and try to understand why she doesn't. They will relish the moment when Kate eventually feels empowered to take charge of her own destiny.
A native New Yorker, Deborah Schwartz graduated from Tufts University and obtained her Masters in History at Columbia University where she wrote a thesis on “Feminism in Eighteenth Century England.” She received her J.D. from Boston University School of Law. Today, Deborah’s passion is writing and she incorporated her achievement of having reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in 2011 into her debut novel. Deborah is most grateful to be the mother of two grown children.
