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.

Lone Start Literary Review 

 The Illusion of Leaving is a literary treasure inspired by the harsh West Texas landscape that magnifies life’s pitfalls and bleak beauty and relationships laden with hidden crevices of enlightenment.
