About Possum Track Chronicles
RALEIGH, N.C. (PRWEB) November 27, 2017
Donna Elks returns to the publishing scene with the release of Possum Track Chronicles (published by AuthorHouse), a true coming-of-age memoir of a Southern Generation X tomboy, born different yet wanting to belong, overcoming abuse and poverty with family, faith and love.
It is the 1970s, in a tiny town called Chocowinity where Elks grew up. She came from a family “where alcohol and substance abuse became the norm.” When her father’s alcoholism and violence reached its worst, the young family is spirited away for protection, and her parents divorced.
Soon her father’s demons re-emerge and he falls into depression characterized by more substance abuse. Several times, their loving extended family comes to the rescue. Among the layers and human elements of her story, lies an ominous secret.
“Now more than ever in the frenetic busyness of modernity, we need to remember the people, places, and experiences that made us who we are. I hope my story encourages someone to own their story, learn from their experiences, and continue bravely in their journey to becoming who they were meant to be,” Elks shares.
Possum Track Chronicles reads with the honesty of a personal diary and the wit, depth, and charm of a classic American story. "It reminds readers," says the author, "that we can love and forgive those who have hurt us; and that people can forgive themselves for things they cannot be."
Possum Track Chronicles, by Donna Elks, is now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local bookseller.
