About Sandra Timberland
When Sandra Timberland, a fresh-faced girl from Tennessee, is thrust into the arena of 1980s New York, her ambitions of success seem impossible to achieve. Faced with opposition from a misogynistic society, she must battle twice as hard as any man to be recognised and given the respect and responsibility she craves.
As she negotiates the vagaries of the business world, she travels the globe and gets caught up in a drama on an international stage. From fraud to blackmail, Sandra learns that the business world can be a murky place and coming up against prejudice and the individual will of those intent on destroying her, it will take all her strength to carry on. As she battles to find a way to make her mark on the world, her fight culminates in a surprising sequence of events.
