If you like bestselling fiction about the lives of believable people, you will love Ruth Harris’s DECADES, the first book in her 20th Century Trilogy.

Spanning the years from the post-World War II 1940’s to the rebellious “Make Love, Not War” generation of the 1960’s, DECADES is the emotional story of a marriage, a family and three generations of women facing the challenges of their changing times.

Evelyn was a loyal and loving wife.
Nat, her restless husband.
Joy, the daughter torn between them.
Barbara was the other woman, accomplished and evolved, who thought she could have everything–including another woman’s husband.

Their conflicting desires and opposing values lead to an unforgettable confrontation and a surprising conclusion.

HUSBANDS AND LOVERS (20th Century Trilogy, Book #2)–Carlys Webber’s lonely and insecure beginnings are in the past but her future is threatened when her loving husband turns into an angry stranger and she is tempted to find comfort in the arms of another man.

LOVE AND MONEY (20th Century Trilogy, Book #3)–Rich girl, poor girl. Celebrity, outcast. Sisters and strangers. They do not know of each other’s existence and might never have met until their worlds collide when fate–and murder–bring them face to face.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I first read “Decades” when I was 15. I read it again in my 20s and again in my 30s, and found it equally compelling – and different – each time.


The writing style itself was extremely engaging. Ruth Harris has a clear voice that shines through the pages. From reading the parts of the book from the three different women’s perspectives, I expected it all to be tied back together in a neat little package at the end, but there was no fairytale ending–just like in real life.


“Powerful, gripping”–Women Today Book Club
“Brilliant” — Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“A great, character-rich novel to curl up with…a novel that will stay with you after you’ve finished reading it–the sign of a great book!” –Amazon customer review
