Chose THE ILLUSION OF LEAVING as one of the Top 10 Books of Texas for 2020.

Chapter 16  

THE ILLUSION OF LEAVING calls readers to consider their own versions of the past as they travel with Jamie through her engaging story, told with a mix of humor and self-reflection.

Scott Semegran review

Brown puts on a master class of character development . . . I give this one 5 stars.
