In My Father's House by E. Lynn Harris
In My Father’s House is the last piece of work by the great author E. Lynn Harris. He did not disappoint as usual. In this story, we meet Bentley L. Dean who is a former model and he now owns a modeling agency in Miami. Bentley, who is a homosexual, was disowned by his father and their very prominent family in Detroit.
Bentley, like many other characters in Harris’ books is having a tough time finding a man that will be his partner is an openly gay relationship. There is one man that has captured his heart, but when his professional and personal lives collide, Bentley must make a decision. Bentley must decide if he will do what is best for his professional life which could mean dealing with some very unflattering characters or his personal life which could put his soul at ease.
While I am sure that E. Lynn Harris intended this book to be the first of next installment of books, it ended with too many unanswered questions. Along with his previous works, this book was very well written and the relationships seemed so real. As a reader, I could feel the emotions of the characters and found myself wondering what decisions I would have made if in a similar situation. I highly recommend In My Father’s house to anyone that is a fan of E. Lynn Harris’ work.
