My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really don’t know where to start on this, but to say this is a once in a life time read and though they maybe other books out there that share this theme. This is one powerful ride that made me questions everything about the men I work with. It also made me question a female boss that was once part of the company I worked for and other women I have known in positions of power.
The main character in the this story Laura goes through a transformation in this novel from someone who shy’s away and just wants to me left making her programmes to a confident young woman, it was just a shame that her business partner took advantage of her and their pinkie promise.
There are many powerful scenes in this book, and the one that will stay with me is when Suki removes her heels at the end of the novel, because she no longer needs to be that extra inches tall because she doesn’t have to compete with the males in her workplace.
Though this is very much a revenge and getting even story, we know that the things that are being portrayed are really happening to women in industry. Some of them get it right, but then there are others like Diane in the novel who just think they need to play the same game.
I really enjoyed this book and wish that Heelen Kist had been picked up by one of the top five so this book can get the recognition that it deserves.
I will be recommending this book for years to come…
