Infidelity with heart & fidelity! "Harry & Ivory" is the unique story of an enthusiastic, white, family man and boat mechanic who becomes obsessed with black girls while never faltering in the love for his wife and children. This touching and sometimes scary, double true-love story is set in Florida in the days just before home computers, cell phones, and bicycle helmets — and before the "War on Drugs". Harry Schaffner's extra-marital desires come to a boil, however, when he becomes besotted with a young woman who would be considered strange for any race. Trying to balance the love for his wife and children vis-a-vis the devil-black Ivory, Harry creates more excitement with this double life by having to keep happy the drug smuggling Cuban gang he does part-time work for in Miami. A story within the story involves Harry's family safely moved 600 miles away to a country place in the Florida panhandle, where his two, bratty children — unwelcome immigrants from Miami — become the scourge of the bible-belt school they are now enrolled in. Readers will be turning the pages just for these outrageous early teens, but home-schoolers may want to hide this book under the bed for their language. Via the author's skill with both male and female viewpoints, readers of all ages and genders will be anticipating looking into every room of this dysfunctional yet happy family's world. Alternating between the treacherous and the beautiful, how this tale unravels its riches will be a joy for both men and women — and hard to forget.
