What if the happy ending you get isn't the happy ending you dreamed of?

DECADES, Book #1 in Ruth Harris's Park Avenue Series, is an emotional blockbuster about three generations of American women.

Evelyn, talented but shy, is a loyal and loving wife whose marriage means everything to her.
Nat, handsome and ambitious, is her successful but restless husband.
Joy, their daughter, inexperienced and insecure, is torn between them.
Barbara is the other woman, younger and beautiful, divorced and desirable, who thinks she can have everything-including another woman's husband.

But can she?
Is she willing to pay the price?
How will Evelyn handle the threat to her marriage?

"Terrific!" -Cosmopolitan

"Powerful...A gripping novel." -Women Today Book Club

"The songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love. DECADES will have three generations of American women reliving their love lives and recognizing ruefully and with wry affection just what changes have overtaken them. The characterizations are good and the period atmosphere absolutely perfect." -Publisher's Weekly

"Three generations of women are succinctly capsuled in this novel by a writer who has all the intellect of Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion. Rarely have attitudes been so probingly examined. Tough, trenchant, chic and ultra-sophisticated, Ms. Harris recreates the decades in which her heroines lived, from zoot suits and Sammy Kaye, through Eisenhower, Elvis and poodle-cut hairdos to moon walks, Mick Jagger and micro-minis. A brilliant book!" --Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"I read DECADES straight through at one sitting and the more I think about that, the more impressive the novel seems." - Houston Post

"Women will be moved and fascinated." - New York Magazine

DECADES sold millions of copies in hard cover, paperback and ebook editions; and was in the top 5 on Amazon's prestigious Movers And Shakers list; in the Top 10 of the Top 100 Paid in the Kindle Store; and in the Top 10 of the Contemporary Fiction and the Contemporary Romance Bestseller Lists.

Welcome once again to the Book Bazaar and congratulations on your book!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!

“Powerful! Gripping!” —Women Today Book Club

A restless husband. An estranged daughter. A marriage—and a family—in crisis.
Evelyn was a loyal and loving wife. Nat, her restless husband. Barbara was the other woman, divorced and lonely. Their conflicting desires and opposing values lead to an unforgettable confrontation and a dramatic conclusion.

“Terrific!”  — Cosmopolitan magazine.
“Brilliant!” — Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“Absolutely perfect!” — Publisher’s Weekly.
