Kingwood, Texas (PressExposure) January 16, 2008 -- âGeorgia Brown has always had her husbandâs back; she was the sole bread winner while he struggled to establish a career in show business as a comedian. Now she wonders if the sacrifice was worth it."
In Sweet Georgia Brown (NAL Trade, ISBN: 0451222288, $13.95), author Cheryl Robinson takes Georgia on a magnanimous ride to finding herself. Marvin finally gets his big break and is now a popular national radio personality. But with his good fortune he inherits his thirteen year old daughter, who Georgia knew nothing about. He is constantly away from home, and he has developed a funky attitude about Georgia.
Enough finally becomes enough after Marvin pulls a stunt that Georgia can't forgive. She is through turning her head. Marvinâs female listeners demand his wife have equal time, and Georgia agrees to do the show. Payback is a mother, when Georgia receives an offer from a rival radio show.
Marvelous Marvin, still too full of himself, is treading in waters too deep even for his boots, and Georgia maybe the only one who can save him.
Sweet Georgia Brown is a delightful story of acceptance and empowerment. It shines as a beacon of light for women who find themselves in a position of power.
