About THE MEMORY OF FLIGHT, winner of the 2015 Georgia Author of the Year Award
Marilyn's quiet, mysterious beauty belies the turmoil inside her head. After her alcoholic husband becomes increasingly violent, she attempts to jump off the bridge in Guntersville, Alabama. At six years old, Ginny is afraid of her father and puzzled by her mother's cold, harsh behavior. She seeks comfort in her grandmother's company and the discovery of her father's old brownie camera. As Marilyn's mental health declines, Ginny becomes increasingly obsessed with photography and solace it provides her. She leaves home with the belief that she is starting her own life and leaving the past behind. THE MEMORY OF FLIGHT is about facing great loss and pain to heal the wounds of the past while learning to fly once more.
