My Life as a Banker
By Fifty Sheds of Books on July 7, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
My Life As A Banker is a fascinating, intimate story. The author has an engaging writing style that draws you into
the story and you feel as though she is talking directly to you, the reader. There is a nice balance between the professional and the personal and while I found the professional aspects rewarding, the highlight for me was reading about the author's interesting life.
The social history aspects of the book also fascinated me, particularly the descriptions of life in Trinidad and I would imagine that this memoir will serve as an important document for social historians in years to come.
This might sound strange to say about a book with Banker in the title, but the author demonstrates quite vividly that there are far more important things than money in life.

Reviewed by Sarah Stuart for Readers' Favorite:.
The message throughout is the strength she draws from her belief in God.
My Life as a Banker: A Life Worth Living is as intriguing as it is inspiring.
Mrs. Brenda C. Mohammed succeeds in her aim of showing how much can be achieved with God's help, and she leads the reader through two very different worlds.
This book would appeal to readers who enjoy memoirs, insider stories of a different age and different cultures, and anyone looking for confirmation of the strength that can be gained from an upbringing that fosters a belief in God.
