An incredible story that took courage to share- and a gripping page turner!
Overlay is Volume 1 in the trilogy Memoirs of Marlayna Glynn Brown.
Written from a child's point of view from ages 4 to 17, this tale describes the turbulent childhood of the author in 1970s Las Vegas.
The desert perimeter serves as a hot, dry and dangerous barrier that shuts out the rest of the vibrant world and bleaches away any sense of the joy that colors childhoods. With her family caught in a never-ending circle of alcoholism and abandonment, young Marlayna learns to care for herself. Her resourcefulness and will to survive are truly inspiring.
This book is free on 9/6.
