Call Me Mommy - Book Review
Retired police captain, Marshall Frank, has written another
excellent read in his latest work, Call Me Mommy. Marshall
is definitely a prolific writer - he has authored five books and
hundreds of short stories and essays to date.
I would classify Call Me Mommy as a tragic suspense saga.
Marshall succeeds in making the book more realistic by
using elements of some factual events within the story line.
The main character, Laura is fooled into having sex with a
callous and selfish boy while she was still in high school.
Lloyd was ill prepared for fatherhood and was forced into
marriage with a girl he did not love. His greed and animosity
is apparent from the beginning. Lloyd ruthlessly ripped
Laura out of his home and his life when he arranged
through corrupt contacts to have her committed to a mental
health clinic. When released from this prison sentence, she
discovered she lost all rights to see her son.
This well-written novel is an emotional story of a mother with
a deep level of compassion, commitment and loyal
endurance. Her self-sacrificing efforts might not save her
son, but she may be able to save her grandson and have a
little taste of revenge as well. Through it all, Laura remains a
strong individual who learns to make room for true love and
Call Me Mommy is tastefully written; full of action and
suspense with elements of underground crime,
professional corruption and vengeance.
