The Privileges

The Privileges

by Jonathan Dee

Overview: Smart and socially gifted, Adam and Cynthia Morey are perfect for each other. With Adamís rising career in the world of private equity, a beautiful home in Manhattan, gorgeous children, and plenty of money, they are, by any reasonable standard, successful. But for the Moreys, their future of boundless privilege is not arriving fast enough. As Cynthia begins to drift, Adam is confronted with a choice that will test how much he is willing to risk to ensure his familyís happiness and to recapture the sense that the only acceptable life is one of infinite possibility. The Privileges is an odyssey of a couple touched by fortune, changed by time, and guided above all else by their epic love for each other.

Faith Bowers (05/15/16): This novel is a Pulitzer Prize Finalist. I thoroughly enjoyed the book following the family history, their wealth and love. I felt let down by the ending of the book but I understand that it just states that life continues. The husband creates his wealth in investments using his people skills and understanding of the numbers. The couple adore each other and have children in the beginning of their marriage so they do evolve amidst all their wealth.

The novel is a commentary on how the very rich live, where their integrity lies and the challenges of raising children no matter the finances. Family is most important and as they do not have an extended family they rely on each other. I enjoy books about business and with good character development and this is Jonathan Dee's formula.
