Mailbox Monday

I find people who have overcome adversity more interesting than people who have not and this true story about overcoming unexpected adversity sounds like a doozy. Here is the description from Amazon:

“Catherine Chagra and her two sisters, Cindy and Christa, were the darling daughters of Jimmy Chagra, the biggest pot dealer in the history of the U.S.A., and one of the kingpins of Las Vegas casinos in the 1970’s. But after their father was arrested and his hundred-million dollars had disappeared, they were left penniless, at the mercy of a Texas society that vilified them. With the help of their principled mother before her tragic death, and haunted by the shadow of their father, Dirty Darlings is a portrait of courage as three women attempt to re-assemble the shattered pieces of their lives.”

Disclosure: I received a copy of Dirty Darlings from Net Galley. This post contains affiliate links.
