FROM THE PUBLISHER:
"Love Don't Live Here" The first book from a generational series. A story about
two black women in their early 20's and takes place during the early 1970's
into the 80's.
Barbara loves her boyfriend Trini dearly but finds out the hard way when he
leaves her while she's six months pregnant, that love is not always what it
seems. Having to raise their son Jermaine by herself poses to be a great task.
Like Barbara, Beverly also becomes a single mother but through much different
circumstances. Her boyfriend Malik, a conscious black man in his early 20's a
member of the Black Panther party, winds up getting killed during a bank
robbery. This leaves Beverly to fend for herself and two children, Derrik and
Tinesha. Being a woman she knows what it takes to raise Tinesha into womanhood,
but is lost when it comes to Derrik.
The two women invite us into the world of relationships and single motherhood.
In the end we all find out that it's all about doing and being the best that
one can be.
In the end the story begins to materialize to the point where the lives of
these two adolescent males begin to evolve into a cycle of confusion-leaving
you the reader to wonder-what's to happen and become of it all.
