In the tradition of Waiting to Exhale and Big Girls Don't Cry, Here And Now is a captivating, emotionally powerful story of two sisters at the crossroads of life, from the acclaimed, bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors, named Blackboard Fiction Book of the year for 1998. Brilliant and vibrant, Marcella Jones had the whole world in her hands, until she gave her heart to the wrong man. Tyrone was handsome and charismatic, but he left her destitute, raising two small children alone--and yearning for the kind of life her dead-end job will never provide. Marcella's elder sister Racquel lives in a fine home, has a fulfilling career and the love of Kevin, her handsome, successful, supportive husband. Yet her desperate longing for a child is driving her into a deep depression, and away from Kevin. As different as night and day, Marcella and Racquel are so hungry for what the other has, they are tearing their lives apart. Only with each other's help can they heal the hurt and celebrate the joy of everything that's been given to them.At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Here And Now marks the return of a wise and fiercely passionate new voice in African-American fiction.
