The Loves of His Life

A novel by

The Loves of His Life is a heartwarming African American contemporary-mainstream love story that is sure to move the reader for its hauntingly descriptive beauty, sentimentality, romance, regrets, and second chances.

Janine Henderson is an African American single mother, 36, and a senior editor for a large minority-owned publishing house in New York. She is sent to California to persuade African American photographer-author Richard Lowrey to honor the terms of his multi book contract after a tragedy strikes his family.

Still hurting from a bitter divorce and general distrust of men, Janine finds herself attracted to Richard. She tries to help him overcome his own pain and return to his work, even as a relationship develops between them.

Richard Lowrey, 38, was once a prize-winning photographer. His talent and will to live left him after his wife and young daughter were killed in a car accident in which he miraculously survived. Now, three years later, a new woman has come into his life--one who is like his beloved late wife, yet so different.

He must come to terms with his tragedy while falling in love with Janine. She also returns his love, though Janine fears she can never measure up to the woman he gave his heart and soul to. If that is not enough, she must also deal with having deceived Richard for his own good, though it could cost them any chance for a future together.

This African American contemporary novel is, in fact, two heartwarming love stories in one. Richard recounts his love for his wife, Kassandra, and daughter, Sheena, while slowly allowing them to be put to rest, as Janine becomes the center of his attention, along with her daughter, Lisa.
