It's election night and Henry Louis Davis II waits for the results that could make him the first African-American president of the United States...the impossible goal he had held since the day Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was shot...back when he shared his dreams with the love of his teenage life as they promised each other it would be for "always."
The years have taken Henry along a path filled with highs and lows. His wife, Leslie, is his lover and best friend, a woman to whom he has pledged himself for always. His long ago love, Cheryl, is the mother of a grown daughter...with a yearning for the one man whom she has loved for always. Now three people face an historic night alone--each recalling the dreams of yesterday and the promises of tomorrow that will bring them to a love meant to last for...Always
