About the Book
Author Mary Morony was born and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia, mainly by her family’s beloved black maid. Her childhood was a time of segregated schools and many places that prohibited black people. Morony’s inspiration for the Apron Strings Trilogy was her strong relationship with her maid and caretaker, who taught her more about life and love than anyone has since. Morony also uses personal life tragedies and triumphs to produce novels with real experiences and true emotion.

What reviewers had to say:
"The characters were very well-developed and realistic. There was a steady flow of energy and smoothness from chapter to chapter." - Rockin' Book Reviews
"It’s true, enduring strength is the main focus here, either you dust yourself off and move on or let life’s misery swallow you whole. The author wrote this tale with so much vigor and warmth that it will consume you." - 2ReadBook
"Rich, well developed characters.I really enjoyed reading this book." - Kay LaLone
"Done Grown Up is certainly a story filled with interesting characters." - Stitch Says
"The author is able to weave a beautiful and complicated tale full of emotion because as you read it feels like you are there with them experiencing there ups and downs, there highs and lows. There is so much depth to Moronys characters its hard to believe that they are fictional and not a living breathing person right in front of you." - Oh My Bookness
About the Author: Mary Morony
By the time Morony was 35, she had been married four times. Divorced, widowed and the mother of four children, she has experienced more in her life than most people would in five lives. It has been said that “A life of tragedy and pain has bred a writer full of wit and compassion” in Mary Morony. As her characters grow and learn, she teaches lessons learned from her own experiences.
Mary Morony is an author who can write about tragedy from the inside and guides her readers through it to compassion, humor and recovery. She brings Southern charm, irreverence and wit to bear against subjects as vast as racism and as personal as alcoholism, always with a heart and soul that makes her work undeniably appealing.
