Beschreibung des Verlags
What can possibly go wrong in a household led by a mother who is educated, rich, and beautiful? As Maralys and her brother, Allan, learn, the answer is everything. Thanks to a mother who marries seven times, the children are dragged from city to city and husband to husband. Yet this memoir proves that youthful willpower can prevail over powerful adversity.
"Maralys Wills, part of an extraordinary--ordinary--family, lived a yo-yo life, growing up in fourteen different locations. She experienced wealth and deprivation, moments of warm hugs and seasons of stunning neglect. At the center of the story is her loving, impetuous, generous, selfish, oversexed, often-absent Mother, a woman lucky enough to raise--or sometimes raise--two brilliant children. Maralys is now a full-time author with a marvelous memory, a wise but childlike sense of humor, a chronic lust for adventure, and a lasting trust in the ultimate good. It's a life lesson." --Stephanie Edwards, Emmy-wining TV/Radio Commentator
