She is beautiful, wealthy, adored, protected, and spoiled. In her early thirties, she raises three children and occasionally dabbles in filmmaking.But this perfect existence is violently shattered when her husband, a financial genius, has a falling out with his partners, the tycoon Manfred Goldberg and his son Samuel. Talia is only vaguely aware of the threat to the life and position of her beloved husband, who protects her until his bitter, cruel end. His sudden unexplained death forces Talia to fight for her independence, her reputation, and her assets and even for her life. Her husband's "buddies" turn out to be a group of sharks who will stop at nothing to dispossess her of her inheritance – the size of which is yet unknown to her. Though devastated by her husband's loss and by its implications for her, the young naïve widow refuses to become a victim of circumstance. She confronts captains of business and industry, who lust after her wealth as well as her body, makes serious mistakes along the way, falls in and out of love, is dragged into power struggle, all the while testing the limits of motherhood, friendship and love. While embroiled in the struggle, she discovers hitherto untapped resources within herself, and gradually a new, independent and intriguing personality emerges. The end of the struggle, from Talia's point of view, is also a beginning since, now rich in assets, resources and interests, she is keenly aware that something important is missing in her life. While never forgetting her departed love, as a mature and well-informed woman, she is now ready for a new love. Will she succeed in this endeavor too?The portrayal of the love between Talia and yoni Schwartz is based on a true story. The only way she could fight those who dispossessed her was to pursue the Biblical saying "A good name is better than a good ointment" (Ecclesiastes 7 - Verse a).************************************************To Miki, for teaching me that Love Conquers All.I remember, that when I asked you "what was the most important thing in life?", your answer was: "amour grande".This book is also dedicated to all the women who are not aware of their inner strength until they have to face unexpected realities. ************************************************Galia Albin is one of the most known businesswomen in Israel, who blazed the path for other woman to enter into the business world.
