Sheila's parents and their attorney convince her to give up the baby boy for adoption. Sheila agrees, but the ensuing guilt and regret over that decision nearly destroys hers.

Desperate to find a new life, Sheila changes her name and moves to another city. In the midst of her newfound normality, MaGil Jackson enters her life.

This is the third novel I've read by Beverly Clark and it was filled with lots of romance and secrets. The heroine of the novel was Brenda Davis'a-k-a Shelia Walker', the daughter of wealthy parents, who made a unforgivable mistake by convincing their daughter, to give her son up for adoption, which lead to an emotional breakdown. After her recovery, she decides to relocate, start a new life. However, little did she know this new life would be the start of a wonderful future. She met MacGil Jackson, the hero of the novel, and gets the shock of her life. Although I found this novel enjoyable, I thought some of the dialogue between Brenda and Gil was, for lack of a better word 'corny', especially during the intimate scenes. Yet, it was still a sweet romance.

This book was the one and only book that I can read over and over again and still enjoy it like it was the first time. I recommend it to everyone who is into this type of book.

This was a truly wonderful book. I could not help but fall in love with MaGil, inspite of his errogance. And I really wanted to reach out and give Sheila a sympathethic hug and applaud her for her strength. I love books that I can get into. The passion between the two of them was strong, and I could not wait to see how this relationship would unfold.

Beverly Clark's 'The Price Of Love', is a romance novel with ethnic rich characters in modern relationships with all the complications that implies. Her characters are complex, diverse and well rounded set in a realistic situations. 'The Price of Love' was riveting and captivating. It's unfairytale like ending left me wishing I could have been her editor or storyline consultant. For me this book read like my own fantasies. Except for the ending, I was with her all the way. Thank you Beverly L. Clark. Can't wait for the next romance to begin.
