E. Lynn Harris's fourth novel soared to new heights of bestsellerdom when it was first published last year. With 210,000 copies in print and a ten-week stay on The New York Times bestseller list as well as multiple-week appearances on every other major bestseller list throughout the country, If This World Were Mine has established Harris as a powerful force in commercial American fiction.

Set in Chicago, If This World Were Mine introduces four old friends who have known each other since their college days at Hampton Institute. Their lives have all gone in different directions, but they still manage to meet once a month at a gathering filled with humor, gossip, and affirmation, where they share their personal diaries and keep a collective journal of hopes for the future. However, the once-strong bonds of friendship have become strained over time, and when a stranger comes into their group, they are forced to confront their true feelings toward each other. When one of them faces death, the crisis forces the friends to recognize and accept the inner strength that the group has nurtured in each of them.
