Her familys tragedies are captured in her memoir, Higher Than Eagles, and her wry wit shines in A Circus Without Elephants a memoir about life with her six athletic and inventive children. In the tradition of humorist Erma Bombeck, these essays by Maralys Wills often spur laughter, or sometimes tears, but always are presented with warmth. The title story, Revenge of the Jilted Draperies presents a hilarious scene in which husband, Rob, is attacked by the familys rejected curtains and they wont let go, even in a public place. Maralys Wills has lived three different lives: Mother of six children, teacher of novel-writing and memoirs, and author of sixteen books. Maralys Wills new collection of stories is so much fun! Each one is different-some reflective and serious, others humorous-but they are all entertaining. I found myself so amused as I carried on that I was glad I wasnt reading them in public. The funniest one for me was the title story, Revenge of the Jilted Draperies. I had tears rolling down my face, and I couldnt read it out loud to my husband because I was laughing so hard I was unintelligible. -Irene Berardesco, B.A. Maralys Wills-she of Higher than Eagles and Damn the Rejections, Full Speed Ahead fame-has done it again. She charms her way into our hearts and right down to our funny bones with whimsical musings that will rip at your heart strings or make you laugh out loud. -Jan Murra, Author, Castoff Maralys stories are always current and relevant to life today. She injects humor, wisdom, and honesty-and her writing style keeps me interested and wanting more. -Molly Nunn
