#1 AMAZON KINDLE BESTSELLER IN “WOMEN’S FICTION”

Three Women. Three Decades. Spanning the years from the optimistic post-War 1940s to the Mad Men 1950s and rebellious “Make Love, Not War” 1960s, DECADES is about three generations of women who must confront the radical changes and upended expectations presented by the turbulent decades in which they lived.

Evelyn, talented but insecure, faithful to the traditional values she grew up with, is a loyal and loving wife whose marriage means everything to her.
Nick, handsome and ambitious, a chameleon who changes with the changing times, is her successful but restless husband.
Joy, their daughter, coming of age at a time of anger and rebellion, needs them both but is torn between them.
Barbara is the other woman. Younger than Evelyn, accomplished but alone, she wonders if she can have everything--including another woman's husband.

But can she? Is she willing to pay the price? And how will Evelyn handle her rebellious daughter, her straying husband and the threat to her identity?

DECADES, sweeping in scope yet intimate in detail, is the emotional, compelling story of family, marriage, crisis, betrayal and healing.

“The songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love. Absolutely perfect1” —Publisher’s Weekly

    SUPERB!!

    Loved, loved, loved this book. It was the first book I have read by Ruth Harris, it was so engaging and true to life. Held my interest throughout the book. The characters and the time frames were all so real. It was as if I was back in that time. The morals and standards that we have lived through come out very clearly along with all the family dynamics, love and dysfunction.

    Worth reading and rereading

    Fascinating book about 3 women's lives at different times in the 20th century, all united by their relationship (of some sort) with a particular man - his college sweetheart and wife, their child, and his mistress. You see their development over time - a different period of time for each woman, but covering several decades in each case. You also see the man's development. The book begins and ends with the same character as the focus of attention, many years apart in her life. Various portions of the book are told from the viewpoint of different ones of the women and put in context by recitations of the most important historical events of that era. The book is long, so after finishing it, I went back to the beginning, because I had forgotten how it started. To my surprise, the story held up so well that I ended up reading it a second time right away, which I normally can't stand to do, because few stories retain much attraction for a reader who knows what is going to happen. But this one did. Knowing what happens later only enriched the reading. There was more explicit sex than I like to see in a book, but it would have been hard to tell this story without it. I would like to see a similar book, about different people, without the sex-fixations of these characters. Since I lived through most of these decades, I know that the stories told here are an authentic reflection of the experiences of some people, but there are others, and I'd like to read about them.

    The characters were well developed & the story held my interest. The historical aspects were interesting also.

    Mad Men redux

    This isn't a bad book...it's a sad book....for the same reason I don't watch Mad Men I'm not gushing about this book.

    As a child of the sixties growing up in an upper class suburb where Stepford Wives and wife swopping was a norm, I can tell you that the story rings true. I think that it felt like I was watching a cross between Mrs. Robinson and Love Story.

    I have another Ruth Harris book I will eventually read. This was almost too soapy for me

    Fair

    This was ok, a little disjointed as to how it jumped from one woma to the next, but the ending sucked. The story was going along then suddenly it was over! It was as if the author got tired of writing and just quit. No resolution, no end of story for any characters, nothing. Just....the end.
