Alicia Hopeabout this book: I wrote GLASS CEILINGS when working for the mining industry in Western Australia. I dreamed of seeing a woman executive succeed in that male-dominated environment, and when it didn't happen I decided to write a story where it did!
I write women's fiction, but this book has also been read and enjoyed by male readers, many of whom can relate to the issues my heroine faces in her struggle to prove herself worthy.
Here's the blurb:
GLASS CEILINGS tells the story of Verity, a young woman working in the Australian mining industry, whose career has been trapped beneath a corporate glass ceiling. When she finally breaks through the ceiling and is elevated to a position of power, Verity then has to deal with all the issues and prejudices she encounters in the new role.
One of the biggest issues she faces is Royce, the executive-in-waiting she beat to the position. In the 'blokey' environment of a multi-national mining company, it was assumed the job was Royce's for the taking, so imagine the uproar when some 'upstart woman' snatches it out from under him!
Resentment and hidden agendas abound, all while Verity strives to carry the weight of the company and its stakeholders on her slim shoulders. She has nobody at home to talk things over with except her cat, but this is by choice. She doesn't want to risk her love-scarred heart again, and has erected a protective 'glass ceiling' over it.
But loyalties can change, and more glass must shatter before Verity can find happiness.
Glass ceilings ... some things are made to be broken.
