If you like quality fiction about the intimate lives of believable people, you will love Ruth Harris’s million-copy New York Times bestseller, HUSBANDS AND LOVERS, Book #2 in her 20th Century Trilogy.

Spanning the years from the sullen 1970’s of recession and gas shortages to the prosperous, exuberant Reagan 1980’s, HUSBANDS AND LOVERS is the compelling story of partially orphaned Carlys Webber and the two men who love her.

A lonely wife. A jealous husband. A passionate lover. A gun in a Tiffany bag.

Carlys’s lonely and insecure beginnings fade into the past when, to her own surprise, she gradually begins to climb the executive ladder of a Manhattan Public Relations firm. Her future is threatened when Kirk Arnold, her White Knight and loving husband, turns into an angry stranger. She is tempted to find comfort in the arms of architect George Kouras–even though she knows the consequences can shatter her marriage.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

“A brilliant book. Ruth Harris has all the intellect of Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion as she recreates the decades in which her heroines lived.” –The Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Because so much has changed in society since the time in which this story was set, it was interesting to revisit it and really see those changes. The political and social events taking place at the time, the sexual politics and the changing roles of women were all very different then, and using that to form the backdrop for the four characters was fascinating. So much of contemporary fiction focuses on women, but this novel was different in that it gave equal time to men and their stories. All in all, an excellent read that I highly recommend you pick up and read!

“Harris’s empathy for her women, especially the ugly duckling who makes herself into a swan, adds a satisfying dimension of reality. Steamy and fast-paced, you will be spellbound.” –Cosmopolitan

I didn’t get any free books. Just 99 cent ones. Did I do something wrong!
