Simple Truth – A Novel
Angela Darrah gets the job of her dreams only to find her client may be exploiting immigrant employees. With each new revelation, she’s forced to face her own prejudices and to examine herself in ways she never imagined.
Having landed a career-making assignment managing the aftermath of a recall crisis for a large Iowa packing company, Angela is stymied when the CEO who hired her resists her advice. Worse, he defers her to his right-hand man who keeps Angela off balance as he alternately supports and obstructs her efforts. When Angela finds an unexpected ally in a handsome Salvadoran plant supervisor, her professionalism wavers in the face of undeniable attraction.
As Angela immerses herself in the company and the town, she is faced with challenges similar to the company’s immigrant workers. How will she navigate a new system and succeed in the face of obstacles and injustices she doesn’t understand? Then, when she discovers corporate actions that are unethical, possibly illegal, Angela must confront the conflict between her duty to her client and her growing passion to fight injustice. Ultimately, she must decide: What is she willing to sacrifice to help someone else?
