John Sebastian has it all—a multi-million dollar business, a hot younger girl friend, a couple of plush homes--, but is still dissatisfied. He returns to Newark, New Jersey, back to his roots, to give back to the community. With the help and guidance of his old mentor Mr. Duke, he hopes to make a difference in the lives of young children.

He donates computers and his time to a disadvantaged school. It is there that he sees her. Josephine Flowers, his old love, is vice-principal at the school. He is desperate to make amends and let her know how he feels, although she is now married to another man.

Josephine is trapped in a troubled marriage and is not too happy to see the man who broke her heart years before. Being around John complicates things to a whole other level. As events unfold, she sees both her husband and John in a different light. Which one will prove to be a man most worthy?

Marcus Major is an exceptional author, bringing A Man Most Worthy to life with his vivid dialogue, witty characters, and inventive situations. I found this novel entertaining and enjoyable. I caught myself laughing out loud several times. The conversations between John and his friend Jules and Josephine and her friend Gloria were hilarious and so true to life. Mr. Major has a gift for making the characters on the page real to the reader. The romance of it all, and from a male perspective, was both enchanting and refreshing. A great novel all around!
