Cover Reveal and Re-Release: The Boots My Mother Gave Me (Anniversary Edition) by Brooklyn James



*Anniversary Edition includes a new cover and a new Epilogue, setting up a sequel for Kat's story*

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk through life in someone else's shoes? 

Strong-willed tomboy Harley LeBeau puts you in the boots her mother gave her, as she takes you along her journey of escape from an abusive childhood and the desire to find herself as she comes of age. Made to feel a burden to her father simply by her gender, Harley is determined to prove her worth and independence, leaving the small town she grew up in and the one boy who gave her a soft place to fall, Jeremiah Johnson. Torn between saving herself and abandoning her mother and younger sister, Harley chooses her own life in hopes they will choose theirs, too. 

A mature, candid read for everyone. A must for women. The Boots My Mother Gave Me explores the dynamics of abuse and dysfunction, the courage to overcome, the strength in sisterhood, and the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between mothers and daughters.

Climb into Charlene the Chevelle for a fast-paced story about a girl who is tough enough to survive and tender enough to learn to trust in love. 

Original Music Soundtrack to The Boots My Mother Gave Me can be streamed at or & purchased on iTunes and Amazon. Or add Brooklyn James to your Pandora & Jango online radio stations.
