EVELYN EVOLVING, the novel I wrote about my mother’s life released in May 2019, and it has flirted with the #1 bestseller list on Amazon several times in two categories ever since.
It was a #1 new release overall for two weeks when it first came out!
This book was three years in the writing and two years in the marketing, and it finally found a home with a small publisher, Next Chapter Publishing. I’ve always wanted to share my mother’s story of survival from significant life challenges, and even though I tried to start a book about her many times, it wasn’t until after she died that I was able to get it written.
The story is part biography, part historical novel, and very different from the genre novels I’ve written before.
“Evelyn Evolving is a heartfelt story of one woman’s journey through some of life’s most difficult trials, a coming-of-age that readers won’t soon forget. Maryann Miller captures the spirit of a woman who refuses to be defeated with great tenderness and, what’s more, enduring hope.” — Kristy Woodson Harvey, bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple
“Ms. Miller’s well-written novel will stay with you long after you read the last page. Brava. Five stars all the way.” Polly Iyer author of Backlash, a novel of suspense.
“A poignant story that demonstrates, through real experiences, how much our choices matter, both to ourselves and our families, especially our children.” Amazon Review
“What an outstanding novel. Thank you so much for sharing this with me. Wow!” Note From A Reader
