Best friends face down a tragedy in this beloved novel from #1 Essence bestselling authors Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant, Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made.

Gayle Saunders and Patricia Reid were total opposites who chose each other as best friends when they were children. Through the years they were raised together, as close as sisters. Gayle, the beauty pampered by her working-class parents, believes a man will make her world complete. Pat, the brainy one, is the hand-me-down child whose mystery parentage haunts her. She's determined to finally make a home for herself: in the executive suite at the top of her career. And then there is Marcus Carter, linked to both women from the moment a childhood tragedy bonds them in secrecy.

Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made is more than a novel—It's the reading experience that swept the country. You will be drawn into the lives of these honest and believable characters from the first page—and they won't let you go until the last.
