"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
At the heart of this lengthy novel is S.L. Warrington & Son, an old American financial institution. The story begins in 1924. Wall Street has come out in full force to witness the dynastic marriage of Howland Warrington, heir to the family business, and socialite Lyda Farwell. The Warrington motto, "honor and optimism," influences the way in which Howland conducts business , and "The Firm," rather like a real person, changes and evolves with the times from the Roaring Twenties until the present day. This is a story of ambitious men and women, and their power, mergers, compromises, hostile takeovers, betrayals, and leveraged buyouts. Almost a fictionalized social history of Wall Street, this well-crafted novel will be enjoyed by family saga enthusiasts. Recommended for most popular fiction collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/15/89.

The Warringtons, owners of a Wall Street brokerage firm, manage to sidestep the '29 stock market crash but are shaken by various tragedies in the decades that follow. "Time and place are dazzlingly evoked, but readers unfamiliar with Wall Street's terrain will find the detailed financial footwork hard going," concluded PW.
