A NovelBook - 2009
"At the heart of 'Union Alantic' lies a test of wills between an ambitious young banker, Doug Fanning, and a retired history teacher, Charlotte Graves, who has suddenly begun to hear her two dogs speaking to her in the voices of Cotton Mather and Malcolm X. When Doug builds an ostentatious mansion on land that Charlotte's grandfather donated to the town of Finden, Massachusetts, she determines to oust him in court. Drawn into the intensifying conflict is Nate Fuller, a troubled high-school senior who unwittingly stris powerful emotions in both of them. As a senior manager of Union Atlantic, Doug is orchestrating the bank's elaborate gamble to remain at the head of the pack. And it is Charlotte's brother, Henry Graves, the president of the New York Federal Reserve, who must keep a watchful eye on the financial giant and its effect on the entire financial system." --Cover, p. 2.
