From the back cover. With Between Friends, Sandra Kitt gives us her most moving novel yet- a compelling story of family secrets and unexpected passions, and two friends, one black and one white, who fall in love with the same man.... Divorced, thirtysomething African-American journalist Dallas Oliver has always felt torn between the worlds of her black father and the white mother she can barely remember. But she refuses to let color stop the friendship that began in grade school with beautiful redhead Valerie Holland, now the single mother of an adorable little girl. Until both Dallas and Valerie fall for Alex Marco, an ex-Navy SEAL haunted by tragic death. As the secret of Dallas's past emerges, and the truth about Valerie's daughter comes to light, a triangle of deception and desire begins to threaten Dallas's deep bond with Valerie and brings her face to face with the painful moment when a woman must choose to stay, or walk away from love.
A romance novel. Very close friends from two different ethnic backgrounds falling in love with the same person. I enjoyed the book tremendously.
This happens in our society today. Loving someone for all the right and wrong reasons, but yet trying to be the better person so the man would stick around much longer.
