Editorial Reviews

Review

Betty and Jack are probably like most other happily married couples in their thirties. They're opposites in every way and live in totally different worlds.

That's how Jack wryly describes their married life when management ranks in the corporate world are suddenly opened to women. When Jack finds himself looking after Katie, a pretty new management trainee in the big conglomerate that employs them, his world is turned upside down. So is hers.

She's married to a stuffy elementary-school principal. Until now, her life has centered on her two young sons. Jack and his workaholic wife have a son and daughter in grade school. On the job together, Jack and Katie quickly discover they are high-spirited, kindred souls.

When one of his jokes turns into something serious, they begin to fall for each other. The crux of The Honorable Thing is the heart-breaking choices they must make.

This is a love story that will make you laugh and move you to tears. There is just the right blend of thought-provoking insights, strong characters, and unexpected humor. Which makes this book an outstanding read.

                  -- Diane Donovan, senior reviewer, Midwest Book Review

About the Author

Karl Jacobs knows where the bodies are buried in the corporate world. He's worked in the headquarters of major corporations in mid-town Manhattan, Newark, N.J., and Wilmington, Delaware. He was speechwriter and special assistant to the vice chairmanat DuPont, and a public affairs vice president and chief speechwriter for two chairmen and CEO's at Prudential Financial.

Before he entered the business world, Karl got his feet wet as a newspaperman. One of his first jobs was writing wedding stories for his hometown newspaper in Superior, WI, while filling in for the society editor. After serving as a reporter for small newspapers in Kansas and Minnesota, he became a news and feature writer and assistant city editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, where he covered racial violence and met newsmakers like President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and a brother of the man who assassinated Dr. King.

Both of his novels grew out of this mix of experiences. His earlier novel, THE PRESIDENT'S KILLERS, has been an Amazon bestseller.

Karl has a journalism degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and eight years later did graduate work in sociology as a Sage Fellow. He and his wife Kay met in the high school band in Superior when he bet a friend a quarter she would return his wink. He was 16 at the time and she was 14. He won the bet and eventually Kay. They have three adult children.
