Book Summary

In a closely-knit community of Southern California, as the world approaches the New Millennium, Paul Van Clyden, sole heir to the Van Clyden Enterprises, strives to walk in the Light, amidst family responsibilities and corporate politics, as he struggles to understand his future, focused on his 2-2-2-5 formula for success. Between beautiful Lily and beautiful Kelly and other options, who will it be? Can he continue to honor his parents and get the woman he loves?


The mysterious Lily, from East Africa, leans on her faith and watches competition from the periphery. Based on her research on the trend leading to the early nineteen nineties, very few, if any, wealthy white males marry black women. What more, Paul plans his back-ups in threes - - she has no intention of becoming the third alternative.

Through the ups and downs of life, Paul matures into a man who inspires those around him.

The Van Clydens' Family Fortune is a multi-cultural, multi-generational, faith-based community learning to navigate their lives in a changing world. Their lives intertwine with the gentleman Paul and they are regenerated through overcoming challenges, as the world approaches the twenty-first century.


Rating: Family.  Some mention of alcohol.  No language, or sex scenes; no cursing, or profanity; very subtle mature themes.
