Golden State
Cynthia Hamilton
5 star contemporary fiction
After first dismissing the notion as absurd, Roxanne boldly takes the plunge into the character-ridden world of real estate, disregarding all cautioning about the state of the economy and the record foreclosures. What she discovers as she wades into shark-infested waters is a talent for negotiating and problem-solving, and an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed. Armed with an acerbic wit and the willpower to make a better life for herself and her son, Roxanne forges ahead despite all the obstacles and pitfalls, continually getting herself into one predicament after another. The more desperate her situation gets, the more determined she becomes, and the more she realizes her future lies solely in her own hands.
