Description
E. Lynn Harris has wowed millions of readers with his signature blend of complex drama and undeniable heart that permeates his novels. Recently included on Ebony ’s “Most Intriguing Blacks” list, and Savoy ’s “100 Leaders and Heroes in Black America,” the award-winning Harris returns with another sure-fire winner in Mama Dearest —an irresistible tale featuring the incomparable heroine who first appeared in Not a Day Goes By and Any Way the Wind Blows , two of Harris’s most popular and bestselling novels.

Ambitious singer, actress, and Broadway bombshell Yancey Harrington Braxton is on top of the world when the sudden reappearance of a long-lost daughter turns her world upside down. But when Yancey learns that her daughter wishes to follow in her mother’s dramatic footsteps, she begins to make peace with the past she’s struggled to keep hidden. A sweeping novel about mothers and daughters, secrets and lies, Mama Dearest will capture and enchant audiences everywhere.

display_description New York City, you've been warned: Yancey Harrington Braxton is back. The ambitious singer and actress is fired up to move past her recent professional and personal setbacks -- including an explosive romance with NFL tight end John Basil Henderson -- and prove her talents are stronger than ever. After being out on tour, Yancey realizes what she really wants is to star in her own reality TV series, and she's even found a rich and well-connected lover to make it happen. There are, however, two women fierce enough to derail Yancey's plans with ambitions of their own: Madison B., a hot new bombshell taking the music industry by storm, and Ava Middlebrooks, who happens to be Yancey's own mama dearest.
