Summary
Adam and Cynthia Morey are so perfect for each other that united they become a kind of fortress against the world. In their hurry to start a new life, they marry young and have two children before Cynthia reaches the age of twenty-five. With a beautiful home in the upper-class precincts of Manhattan, gorgeous children, and plenty of money, they are, by any reasonable standard, successful. But the future in which they have always believed for themselves and their children (a life of almost boundless privilege, in which any desire can be acted upon and any ambition made real) is still out there, but it is not arriving fast enough to suit them. As Cynthia, a stay-at- home mom, begins to drift, Adam is confronted with a choice that will test how much he is willing to risk to ensure his family's happiness and the life of infinite possibility. This is a timely meditation on wealth, family, and what it means to leave the world richer than you found it.--B.I.P
Summary
Becoming wealthier and more socially connected throughout their marriage, Adam and Cynthia Morey also find themselves increasingly subject to the temptations of excess and risky behavior while their children struggle with their own privilege-based challenges
