“I thoroughly enjoyed Catherine Burr’s novel. I like her style of writing. As the story develops, we are introduced to many characters who play a key role in the lives of the main characters. At the last few chapters, out of the blue, the true issues are revealed. Not the ending I expected.”

Marisa Clink fights to overcome all odds as they are stacked against her as she grows up impoverished. She desperately desires more, if only she can figure out how to become on top of the Silicon Valley world. Love, money, dreams in Silicon Valley read like an expose in the Silicon Valley in Desires and Deceptions from the author of the bestseller, SILICON SECRETS, Catherine Burr.

Modern day Cinderella Story

“Marisa is a poor girl who seeks more out of life and the story follows her as she grows from bratty teenager to cranky wife and hurried mother who tries to keep up with the affluent high-tech lifestyle of the San Francisco Bay Area. Marisa gets sucked into all the riches she sees before her and the quick way to make a buck disillusions her, but not as much as she begins to doubt her relationship with her husband. This did have a surprise ending, an enjoyable trait to Catherine Burr novels, and I would recommend Desires and Deceptions, as well as Burr’s other books.” -Barnes and Noble customer review

Note from the Author:  You wouldn’t believe what really happens in Silicon Valley, so that’s why I wrote Desires and Deceptions and Silicon Secrets.
