Description
Curl up in a chair and enter the lives of two unforgettable women whose joys and sorrows you will never forget. And when you're finished, call your best friend. With heart and soul, passion and poignancy, Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made follows the lives of two best friends, Gayle Saunders and Patricia Reid, as they grow, learn, make choices, find love, and find heartache. From the time they were young, Gayle and Patricia were raised like sisters, as close as two friends could be. But they each had dreams that would take them far away--and far away from each other. Gayle was the beauty who believe that a man could make her world complete. Patricia was the intellectual who thought that rising to the top of her career would make her happy. And then there is Marcus Carter, who has been linked to both Pat and Gayle since the tragedy that occurred when they were all children. Can either one save him from himself? Can friends survive a love that comes between them? Each of them gets what she wants, but no one counts on the price they have to pay. When they realize that dreams can be hollow and love has its cost, they learn the most important lesson of all: to never given up on the people who love you, and that it isn't just blood that makes two people sisters.

display_descriptionGayle 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.
