Synopsis: Four friends, all graduates of Hampton Institute, keep a collective journal they call "If This World Were Mine," and share their personal diaries each month at a gathering filled with humor, gossip, and affirmation. The four group members are as different as the seasons, yet they all share a love of one another. Yolanda, a media consultant, keeps it going on with a no-nonsense attitude and independence that are balanced by the theatrics of Riley, a former marketing executive whose marriage has reduced her to a "kept woman with kids." Computer engineer Dwight's anger at the world is offset by the compassion of Leland, a gay psychiatrist whose clients make him question why God ever invented sex.

But after five years, the once-strong bonds of friendship are weakening, and the group must handle challenges of work, lost love, and a stranger in their midst. As the group members confront their true feelings toward each other, resentments and long-held secrets surface, and the stability of the group begins to disintegrate. Is their past friendship strong enough to survive the future?

Review: Four former classmates of a prestigious African American college have a "journal club" where, nearly 20 years later, they still meet regularly to talk about what's going on in their lives. Dwight is filled with resentment towards whites, and it's about to raise some serious conflicts at his job. Leland is still coping with the death of his partner, Donald, from AIDS. Riley's afraid that the love's gone out of her marriage, and that she'll never be able to achieve the success as a poet-singer she's dreamed about. And Yolanda... well, Yolanda's just started a romance with former pro football player Basil Henderson, but longtime E. Lynn Harris fans just know where that's going to lead. The multiple first-person narration can be confusing at times, but the convoluted plot does sort itself out neatly in ways sure to entertain Harris's previous fans, as well as anybody who likes Terry McMillan or Gloria Naylor.
