From Library Journal
Mathias Sanders and lifetime friend and high-school classmate Randolph Mason conspire to make their children fall in love. Mason deploys his son, Jake, to Lamar, Alabama, to supervise the acquisition of Sanders's newspaper for Mason Publishing, now the largest black-owned publishing company in the country. As Jake tries to prove himself to his successful father, he falls for Eleanor, Sanders's daughter and the managing editor of the paper. The couple's attraction-repulsion seesawing becomes tedious after a while, so the reader's delight in their eventual union ebbs before they actually commit to each other. Benson (Holiday Cheer, LJ 11/15/95) also conveys only a muted cultural authenticity in the book.?MKC
