Overview

If you want a nostalgic ride through the sixties, come along with Marlee Sweet as she travels to the southern states on a Trailways bus. Marlee meets sailor Joe in Halifax, Canada and is determined to visit him in his home town of New Orleans. But first she must make a stopover in New York to grow up a bit. From New Orleans to Mobile, to Montgomery then onward to Birmingham, Atlanta and finally Tennessee, it's a whirlwind of love, romance, adventure, tragedy, heartbreak, deceit and danger. From Joe's arms to a conniving Bobby Barnes, Marlee goes from girl to woman learning the ropes of life.
Experience the reaction in Albany, New York when the President is assassinated; watch the Beatles first visit to the US on the Ed Sullivan Show; stand in awe in front of the Mardi Gras Fountain in New Orleans, and take a stroll through the French Quarter with Marlee and Joe; visit the church on Dexter Avenue in Montgomery where Martin Luther King, Jr was once a pastor; Take a walk in an African-American's shoes from the old south; eat a hotdog from Chris' in Montgomery with Marlee and Bobby; visit Napoleon House in New Orleans and have a laugh while Marlee writes poetry and a poet reads it aloud; park on Beale Street in Memphis and marvel at the statue of W.C. Handy; gaze at the now demolished but once impressive San Carlos Hotel in Pensacola, Florida; look out over the amazing view in Birmingham, while observing the Vulcan statue; and last but not least, wonder where your next dollar is going to come from, and have your dreams put on hold.
Each day brings a new adventure and a new decision it seems. In the end it all comes down to choices, and the ones Marlee makes will change her life forever.

1964: Chasing a Dream is the first book in the Dream Series. Book Two is Facing Reality.

    I really enjoyed this book and now look forward to reading the sequel. It definitely held my interest and was one of those "can't put down" novels. However, the reader will find numerous spelling errors in the eBook.........but they sure didn't stop me from enjoying it!!

    Ready to give up halfway through.  This book is way too drawn out.  Over a thousand pages of a girl making one bad decision after the other while mooning after every man she meets.  The story had potential but would have been so much better with some professional editing and proofreading.
