Christmas On Clermont Lane is a multi-generational Black romance novel about love, forgiveness, and starting over at any age.
Clermont Lane was once her favorite place in the world–until it wasn’t.
Jasmine Robinson was born into wealth and prestige, and lived a charmed existence until a horribly traumatic life event changed everything. She grew up to be a fiercely independent, strong, and stubborn woman, desperately doing all that she could to avoid those who wronged her. Jasmine often focused on her desperate need to succeed, sometimes biting off more than she could chew. Now, at the age of thirty-five, all she had to show for her life were failed relationships, overdue bills, and a broken heart.
Something would have to give.
Suddenly before Christmas, a family tragedy brings Jasmine back to Clermont Lane, the very place she vowed to never return. Revisiting her childhood home and the damage caused by a relative forces her to face the suppressed memories of the past while confronting the very people she tried to forget.
Jasmine has the opportunity to rebuild her life on her own terms, but will she choose to do so in the very place that caused her so much pain? Or will she decide to once again run away, never confronting the skeletons in the family closet?
Christmas On Clermont Lane is the first in the Clermont Lane book series, which takes readers through the origins of The Robinson Family: their wins, their losses, and their new beginnings.
