The author of the bestselling memoir "Black Ice" now lets readers share in the crises, heartbreaks, passions, and triumphs of four African-American women who find out how powerful the bonds of friendship can be.
From the Publisher:
Pride introduces us to four accomplished, passionate, and thoroughly down-to-earth African-American women whose lifelong friendship is about to take some unexpected turns. There's Roz, the sharp-tongued politician's wife, who's trying to keep her family together as she recovers from breast cancer and her husband runs for the biggest election of his career. But she's hardly prepared for the bombshell that explodes when she discovers one of her three best friends has been sleeping with him. There's the fiery and fiercely independent Tam, avoiding commitment both in her career and in her sexually combustive affairs with men. She's ready to make some radical changes, though, including allowing herself to feel vulnerable with a sexy hunk who may have more than just looks. There's Arneatha, an Episcopal priest, to whom the friends look for moral guidance, but who has felt hollow since the early death of her husband. When fate throws her a couple of curves, in the forms of an abandoned child and an intriguing stranger, her life is completely overturned - and she needs all her faith, and all her friends, to get through. And there's Audrey, talented, caring, but nearly ruined by drinking, who has to be the bravest of them all to battle back from the clutches of addiction. Her struggle almost costs her her life but brings renewal to the friends' devotion to each other.Follows the crises, passions, and joys of four outstanding Black women, including the ambitious wife of a politician who, she learns, is sleeping with one of her best friends
Annotation:
Four African-American teenage girls, friends through high school (and known as "the pride," as in lionesses), grow up and try to make it in America. Each woman tells her own story, and the emphasis is on each one's independence and intelligence in the midst of life in a stultifying society.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A deftly written, if less-than-groundbreaking, second novel...likely to appeal to Terry McMillan fans everywhere....An adequately entertaining if convoluted story, with swift and lively dialogue throughout." 01/01/1998

New York Times Book Review
"The chief flaw of 'Pride' may be seen by many readers of popular fiction as its greatest asset--namely, the mounting number of dramatic events....These make for fine entertainment, but after a while they begin to seem mass-produced--especially given the subtle, idiosyncratic characters Cary has created, whose personalities seem utterly, and affectingly, distinctive." - Michael Rovner 03/22/1998
