Overview

Author Nancy Turner shares a riveting non-fiction narrative about Debbie Austin’s unusual life. So bizarre is her story that it sounds surreal, yet true. The lives of a mother, daughter and son weave heartbreak and pain through the pages and unfold deeper and darker family secrets.

A Southern born girl, Debbie dreams of one day becoming a wife and mother. She grows up in an ultra-religious family. At no time does she anticipate that one of her children will eventually become a famous porn star.

On Monday, March 23, 1981, a poignant moment occurs in Debbie’s life. A whispering voice speaks to her for an hour as she tosses and turns on the living room couch. Each whisper instructs her to, “Go. Look in the truck.” Debbie mentally argues with the voice she believes is an angel for one hour. Finally she relents and goes outside in the dark.

Inside her husband’s truck, Debbie finds a hidden white satchel that shatters her life. That moment thrusts her and her children into a stunning series of life-threatening events. And just when she believes her life can’t get any worse, her rollercoaster world plunges down the steep hill of stunning dishonesty from her daughter and hits sharp curves caused by her son’s addictions, violence and crime.

Formidable family secrets continue to mount and lead to a dangerous moment when depression overwhelms Debbie. She decides to end her tortured life. Once again, divine intervention occurs. While her brother, thousands of miles away, watches an old family movie with a young Debbie in it, he suddenly realizes she is in serious trouble and calls. It takes him three days of long distance phone calls to talk her out of suicide.

After deciding to live, Debbie’s life continues to veer through worsening events and even tougher family issues and secrets.

Nancy Turner, author of One Mother of a Porn Star, says, “Debbie Austin’s riveting story will profoundly move and amaze readers and make one wonder, ‘Could I deal with Nancy’s complicated family secrets and issues time and time again? What would I do if my child became a famous porn star?

One Reviewer wrote: This isn't a book you can sit down and read without thought from cover to cover, just for escapism. There is a lot going on in each portion to think about as to Debbie's life. The story makes you stop and think before you start judging others. I'll be buying the next book to read more about what happens to this family.

    Bad

    I dont know what this was suppised to be but it just quit at 175 pages as if half the book were missing. No resolution nothing. For that it gets the one star you are forced to give it to post. If not it would get minus stars for cheating you out of the rest of the book.
