“The Wealthy Whites of Williamsburg by Mike Karpa is a family drama with plenty of humor and sarcasm to keep you entertained for hours. The story follows the four members of the White family in which Roger and Casey White and their daughters Demmy and Abby have dilemmas to resolve. Roger longs for the day when he gets to write his next big screenplay while going through the motions of his current job as a professor. Casey longs for a better lifestyle that matches her peers. Demmy wants to get into an Ivy League college without trading on the money privilege she enjoys, while young Abby is just existing as she pleases. However, the real issues begin when Casey comes across a secret that can destroy the family. What will Casey do with this discovery?
“The plot is intense, a little ironic, and a bucketful of fun. The humor keeps the story alive, and the eccentric characters make sure you have someone to cling to until the very end. While The Wealthy Whites of Williamsburg seems like your typical family drama, it becomes much more than that as you continue to read. The narrative is sophisticated, the plot is clever, and the execution is even better. Each character is drawn clearly and cleverly to create a vivid image in your mind. Sherbeam, Roger’s mother, seems to be a troublemaker with her attitude and her ego, but everything is a culmination of each of the Whites. Mike Karpa writes the perfect social satire on how the rich upper-class lives and nothing is perfect. Highly recommended!”
