Money Tree

(2014)
(The first book in the Equal Lives series)
A novel by

 
 

MONEY TREE is a departure for Gordon Ferris, the best-selling author of the acclaimed DOUGLAS BRODIE Quartet set in post-War Glasgow, including the Kindle #1 bestseller: The Hanging Shed. MONEY TREE is a literary thriller set among the glittering canyons of New York and the seething alleyways of New Delhi. At its heart is the story of a destitute woman in a dying village in central India, and her struggle against the daily embrace of usury. Into her fraught existence blunder two westerners: a world-weary American reporter living off the faded glory of a Pulitzer Prize, and a hard-bitten Scottish banker wrestling with her late-developing conscience. As the tension mounts, their three storylines interweave and fuse in a thundering and moving climax.

In pointing up the gulf between rich and poor, and the misguided efforts of western institutions to meddle in developing countries, Gordon pays homage to Professor Yunus, winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize for Peace and founder of the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh. MONEY TREE is the first novel in the ONLY HUMAN series - fast paced stories tackling some of today's global challenges. The second in the series - EQUAL LIVES - will be published in Spring 2015.
