Having It All
1997––Dalia Roberts had it all––a successful career on Wall Street, a big beautiful house, a loving marriage, and two fantastic kids. But along with those blessings came the work-related stress, the harried days and sleepless nights, the long commutes, and the constant, never-ending juggle of marriage, children, and finances.
Despite being a two-paycheck family, Dalia and Joel Roberts must juggle to make ends meet. Then disaster after disaster hits, leaving their once-perfect home life, along with the professional persona Dalia had worked so hard to perfect, in shambles. Burnt out and unable to think clearly, Dalia makes a desperate decision. Will this ill-thought-out move be the answer or only cause further heartbreak?
Belinda Gordon’s poignant new contemporary fiction unpacks the complex struggles and financial challenges working women with families face when trying to have it all.
