With poetic voice, wisdom, and humor, Foster introduces readers to two lovably flawed characters: a lonely, overly loud man and a woman who wears way too much perfume. Afraid to hurt their feelings, no one has ever told them of their faults. But that's about to change.
Loneliness is a dark cloud over Baltimore for neighbors Mary, Puddin, and Moor. Unlucky in love and unhappy without it, they are each about to take a drastic step on the bumpy road of romance. Guided by advice from well-meaning friends, all three enter the dating scene in a different way and with often wildly amusing results. Humorous and heartwarming, their stumblings and successes ultimately bring valuable and unexpected lessons on life, love, and telling the truth.
A modern-day fairytale, Ain't No Mountain introduces an urban princess, lost and in search of her true identity. Still single and anything but satisfied, she is aided on her journey by a middle-aged, self-proclaimed hip hop god-mama who worries she might have been married one day too long, and an African prince who isn't having any of it. Along with eight friends, three sixteen-year-olds, a computer dating service, one MIA husband, and a whole lot of chicken, they embark on a humorous and poignant search for truth, true love, and happiness in a land called Baltimore. Like the song says, "Ain't no mountain high..."! Once more, Sharon Ewell Foster captures our hearts with quirky humor, insights into human nature and culture, and depth of spiritual understanding.
