"Harris here blends old and new characters, who encounter shifting fortunes with unforeseen consequences." Library Journal
The incomparable E. Lynn Harris is back with a big blockbuster of a beach novel that will thrill, entice, and delight like never before. In a swashbuckling career that includes seven novels, six New York Times bestsellers, and more than three million copies in print -- all in less than a decade -- the supremely talented Harris has become a wondrous commercial sensation.
His secret? An ever-expanding vision of his audience; a masterful ability to weave a wickedly (but often compassionate) delicious read; but most of all, the awesome and unfailing courage to blow the lid off topics other writers wouldn't dare touch.
With one hand on the reader's pulse and the other on his computer keyboard, E. Lynn Harris's A Love of My Own will once again place him at the top of the bestseller list, widening his fan base as he takes on the universal issue of class and how changes in economic status among family and friends can often disrupt, confuse, and wound.
But love, a signature Harris theme, abounds in this novel. As a band of close-knit characters (old and new) navigates life's challenges and tries to find their place in the world, each person will go on a journey of the heart in search of the one thing everyone wants: a love of their own.
