Beginning with the loss of both parents before the age of 10, Tharon Ann is out of step with, but ahead of her time. Whether she is unintentionally offending southern segregationists as she innocently befriends black neighbors and church goers; vehemently repelling inappropriate male gropers as a young woman; eschewing the casting couch as a quick ticket for career advancement as an actress in film, TV and Broadway; or setting out with her three children on an unknown journey with mystic teacher Mary Blakemore, Tharon Ann repeatedly musters the courage to eventually find her destiny as a Spiritual seeker.
And what is Tharon Ann's destiny ???
Well, dear reader of this review, ... you will find the answer to that question when you read "Tharon Ann".
I enjoy this author, now called Jennifer Brookins, because she recants each phase of her life with truth and humor. In addition to the voice of Tharon Ann, I enjoyed reading about her relationship with her spiritual teacher and the rigors of undertaking a spiritual lifestyle after having been an actress on stage and screen. I enjoyed her stories of famous people such as Lucille Ball, Elizabeth Taylor, and Elia Kazan as she related to them. The only part I felt the need to skim was about her cravings for nicotine. I feel that part of the book could be shortened to one or two sentences. I love the way Jennifer describes her ego and the lack thereof until she realizes it may be more of an issue for her than she had been willing to recognize.
As a follower of Jennifer Brookins on Facebook, I look forward to hear of the sequel to this book so I can enjoy the tales of her travels to India on her spiritual journey.
I highly recommend Tharon Ann for a fun and inspiring true story to enjoy from start to finish.
