by Overton Shelmire
Dallas-born architect Overton Shelmire used to entertain office pals with stories of his childhood. They enjoyed the tales so much that they threatned to write them down and publish them if he wouldn't. He did. *
All is told in this entertaining family saga of love, friendship, and adventure in Dallas during the 1930's and 40's. Like childhood, its most memorable moments combine elements of innocence and humor, fear, sexual awakening, and understanding of injustice.
SECRETS UNDER THE BRIDGE will reach into each reader and touch that universal soul.
