Editorial Reviews


“Compulsively readable…a cheeky—and at times, romantic—battle cry for any woman who’s ever strived to have it all and been told by a man that she couldn’t.” (Entertainment Weekly)

"Funny, relevant and often shocking.... Even if your own life is far from a fairy tale, Opening Belle will allow you to laugh, learn and maybe even lean in — to hug your own family a little closer.” (Washington Post)

"Maureen Sherry’s comic novel unspools like a movie....I can just hear Cyndi Lauper’s version of 'Money Changes Everything' on the soundtrack." (Dallas Morning News)

"Corporate sexism and the mortgage crisis are a laugh a this delightful comic novel, at least....So much fun, and educational too." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

“A smart, biting and honest peek into what it means to be a woman on Wall Street. I loved this book.” (Reese Witherspoon )

"Working Girl meets Wolf of Wall Street in this in depth, behind the pinstripe peek inside a temple of elite finance, navigated by a sharp, smart woman in an old boys' world." (Jill Kargman, author and creator of Odd Mom Out )

"Wow. This is the inside story we've been waiting for. Wall Street women never talk because their silence has been bought. Not Maureen Sherry. She tells her story of a working mother's battle against outrageous sexism and financial recklessness with laugh out loud insight and winning panache. Shocking and hilarious, Opening Belle is one woman's glorious revenge on the unreconstructed Tarzans of the corporate jungle. I don't know how she does it, but I'm really glad she did." (Allison Pearson, author of I Don't Know How She Does It )

"Opening Belle is an irresistibly Zeitgeist y novel about motherhood, marriage, misogyny, lust, ambition, discovery, disappointment, entitled nannies, and Goldfish crackers on the floor that (and this is big) rings true. But that’s not all. Sherry’s novel is also a delightfully funny and frequently damning participant observer’s dissection of the secretive codes and practices of an elite, socially antediluvian tribe of men who, in a very real sense, run the world. For them, the bell has sounded." (Wednesday Martin, author of Primates of Park Avenue )

"Rooting for our girl banker/mommy/wife Isabelle is not tough; she is so brilliantly breezy. This book reveals the honest reality of a woman working in a man's world and still being treated like she's in an updated version of the cult classic 9 5." (Lucy Sykes, author of The Knockoff )

“Maureen Sherry reveals what it’s like to be a woman working in the adrenaline fueled, complex, exciting, rewarding, and demanding culture of Wall Street. You won't be bored on this roller coaster ride.” (Amy Goodfriend, CEO Goodfriend Partners, former Partner, Goldman Sachs )

"This funny and fast paced romp is sure to entertain." (Booklist)

"This workplace novel that takes a fun look at Wall Street and the Park Avenue set is filled with humor and heart." (Library Journal)

Walls Within Walls—her first book, a mystery for middle school audiences—has been awarded curriculum prizes by the states of Texas and Connecticut, and she was named one of the Best New Voices by the American Library Association. Maureen is also an active board member of numerous charities. She lives in New York City with her husband and four children.
