Cheyenne Florian, young and ambitious, has landed her dream job as correspondent for Independent News Network.
Though INN’s brand is being edgy and innovative, Cheyenne quickly finds that the age old dynamic of men resenting women in business still stands.
Then a mysterious diary turns up accompanied by a note urging Cheyenne to learn from the past.
Cheyenne’s struggles at the network actually mirror what this woman went through during her own meteoric rise decades ago. And the diary tells her story.
Cheyenne thinks she can change things for women in broadcasting. But she quickly learns that, ultimately, men are still threatened by women in power.
My Review: I typically love Holly Brown’s novels, but this one didn’t keep me as interested as her other books have. She is a great writer, no doubt about that, but this book just didn’t excite me.
Someone working in the TV broadcasting field would probably have appreciated it much more.
About The Author:
Holly Brown is (in no particular order): a novelist, wife, mother, marriage and family therapist, poker enthusiast, resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, lover of some incredibly shameful reality TV, devotee of NPR (she owes a debt of gratitude for inspiring more than one novel), and a believer that people should always be willing to make mistakes and always be the first to apologize for them.
