After a successful forty-year business career that took him literally around the globe, author Andrew B. Louis retired to focus on his passion for writing. Originally sharing drafts of novels only with friends and family, he was encouraged to offer them to a broader audience. Andrew is quite esoteric in his choice of topics: always fictional but with believable real-life situations, some based on personal experience, others simply imagined. A researcher at heart, Andrew includes many details from his research of places and things, but he never pretends to reflect actual realities. For this, the reader must decide: is this real or imagined?
Andrew writes, “An enterprising young man marries an unpretentious and discreet heiress. Both are determined to succeed in their respective careers, capitalizing on their skills, drives, hard work, and strong marriage which provides harmony in their lives, rather than become trust babies. Yet several issues will intrude on what would be for many other couples their tranquility. They are confronted with at least three critical choices.
“The heiress’s family company, currently run by her father, following in the footsteps of three prior generations, will need direction when her father wants or needs to retire. Her siblings are not in the running, having chosen fields of endeavors that do not prepare them for these responsibilities. The family hates the idea of having to entrust an outsider with the reins. Will she be willing to abandon her own promising career?
“Her husband would also make a perfectly good choice. However, his career has taken him on overseas assignments. He has been very successful in each of them, but there is no apparent direct route for him to take over without abandoning his own career. To make matters more complicated, he may be the first in his industry to realize that managing the wealth of families and individuals requires a tailored approach, which his own employer does not at present utilize. Will he be able to make the right choices?
“Finally, they both realize that their three children will eventually need more stability in their lives after having bounced from one place to another for ten years or so. Where will they find that stability? Will it help their parents get closer to their mother’s family or will it make things harder?”
