If you are interested in participating in my writing journey, I am seeking Beta Readers for April 2021. Please contact me through this link. Approximately eight-hour reading time.
a Memoir of Heritage, (Keeping) Faith, and (Breaking) Norms
History, humor, and heartbreak are all threads
in this coming of age story while under the influence of my close-knit
Russian-Czechoslovakian family’s morals, traditions, and religious beliefs.
I navigate to understand the differences between me and other girls
through my early crushes, and the tragic death of my first love–
the memory of which impacts my future decisions.
Choices whether or not to follow my heart were both affected and deterred
by conservative parents, a formidable extended family, and the societal norms of the sixties through the nineties.
Leaving Calico Lane was easy. The first time.
