Books written by Maxine Sue Feller, mother of author R.A. Feller. There are many things that are picked up through family generations by the osmosis of the atmosphere in every home situation. I’m sharing my mother’s books, Maxine Sue Feller,  who is also an author for this reason. This will allow you to see the difference between where I came from in my home and what happened after I found God upon leaving.

“A Broken Promise”

George and Grace Goodrich looked forward to his retirement, anticipating enjoyment for the rest of their lives. Arrangements for travel seemed exciting as everything they planned for was coming together. Two months later, his retirement luncheon turned everything sour. It was discovered that their second honeymoon plans, which they couldn’t originally afford, were falling apart. This weighed heavily on Grace’s mind.

The next day, George mistakes Grace’s tube of anti-wrinkle cream for a tube of toothpaste. Now he often repeats himself. Could something be wrong? He suddenly decides to move out of their bedroom and it is discovered in the mail that their travel tickets to fly to Paris, France were replaced with a “Hot-air Balloon Festival,” in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This did not seem right and it left his wife upset and puzzled.

Grace realizes George’s behavior and actions need to be examined more closely. To her surprise, a doctor advises her to place him in a gated facility for his own safety.

Since George has no memory of Grace, he meets and falls in love with another patient. Grace must face the dilemma of staying married to a man who has not only forgotten who she is, but has fallen in love with another woman. What will she do?

“The Fortunate Child”

It was a long and devastating journey that Maxine was forced to undertake. Through depths of despair as a preschooler and on through a tumultuous adolescence where she was ignored, life became confusing. Her abusive and uncaring mother who daily left her with a malicious grandmother who similarly mistreated her caused a fending for herself.

Her divorced mother next instructs her to no longer call her Mama, which makes things worse for a child. In an effort to enhance her own marketability as a prospective wife in the future to some unsuspecting man in her situation, she becomes resourceful in distancing herself from “Mama.”

Fortunately, Maxine learns how to become street smart with guiles that allow her to survive. The pain of her youth converts out of necessity, which toughens her with unwillingness to accept what appears to be inevitable defeat. Find out how her own perseverance and courage allowed for acceptance and finally graduation from Brooklyn College.

Separating herself from an horrendous past, she rises up to achieve success as a schoolteacher, wife, and ultimately a mother and grandmother. Proficiency as a stock trader also becomes par for the course, thus providing herself and her family the additional financial and emotional security she was deprived of in her early years.
Maxine reflects on her life as an independent success story.
