Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Jonathan Garrett has just lost everything in the Crash of ’29. His business partners and best friends, Aryl Sullivan and Caleb Jenkins, must rally together to adjust to a sudden and violent shift in lifestyle. Jonathan, a natural born leader, is forced to rent a rundown tenement apartment from an old business rival who does not hesitate to torment Jonathan and his wife, Ava. Aryl, an opportunist and hopeless romantic, steps up to lead the group while working to maintain a realistic level of hope for his wife, Claire, as Jonathan spirals into oblivion and contemplates suicide. Caleb, simple and naive, has only one concern–caring for his high maintenance, self-centered wife, Arianna. A sudden twist of fate takes the group to Rockport, Massachusetts where they begin a bittersweet new life. They must leave behind their beloved friend Maura; an invaluable source of support, providing hard love, truth and humor through the couples’ desperate time in New York City. As the Depression grabs hold of the country, Jonathan, Aryl and Caleb settle into a modest lifestyle. But while learning to appreciate the joys of a simple life, tragedy strikes again–changing everything for the group, forever.
