From the Publisher:
Now in mass market, from national bestselling author RM Johnson comes an irresistible page-turner about family and second chances.

In his debut novel, The Harris Men, RM Johnson introduced us to Julius Harris, diagnosed with terminal cancer at age fifty-five. Determined to make amends for his past mistakes while he had the chance, Julius raced to reunite with Austin, Marcus, and Caleb, the three grown sons he walked out on twenty years before.

     Cut to five years later. Though Julius's earlier attempt to reunite with his sons was unsuccessful, his cancer has now gone into remission, filling him with renewed hope of bringing his family together. But fulfilling this dream won't be easy. Julius's sons are busier than ever with their own lives and families, and each grapples with trials of his own?trials that resonate with the impact of Julius's decision so many years ago. Austin, the oldest son, struggles to be a good father to his two children despite his ex-wife's determination to turn them against him. Marcus, the middle son, wrestles with a fear of commitment that leads him to turn his back on the woman he loves. And Caleb, the youngest, just released from prison for armed robbery, tries desperately to rebuild his life and win back the wife and son lost to him as a result of his mistakes.

     The Harris Family is, on the one hand, filled with treachery and betrayal, romance and shocking twists. But it is also an intelligent portrait of contemporary black relationships and, ultimately, a moving testament to the power of family, love, and forgiveness.In the sequel to The Harris Men, Julius Harris, whose cancer has gone into remission, continues his struggle to bring his family back together, but his three sons--Austin, Marcus, and Caleb--all busy with their own concerns and problems continue to feel the repercussions of their father's abandonment and their fatherless childhoods. 35,000 first printing.

Annotation:
Julius Harris is a cancer survivor who has been trying to be a good father to the three sons he abandoned long ago. The boys are now involved in their own problems, including Austin's custody struggles with his ex-wife and Marcus's time in prison.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Sequel to THE HARRIS MEN, offering emotional punch if little else as it revisits an African-American family....Well-intentioned, sometimes compelling, but far too agenda-driven." 10/01/2001
