Carol Perkins & Connie Wilson's book: A Girl named Connie
"In short, this is a story about Connie's discovery on a crowded gravel playground at the Old Edmonton High School (our elementary school) by a disgruntled playmate) that she was adopted. She never told her parents what she knew, but spent the next forty plus years searching for answers and avoiding confrontations from those who often wanted to tell her 'what I have heard about you. . . ' Those answers would come in the form of a phone call late one night." - CAROL PERKINS
By Carol Perkins
After many years of planning, researching, interviewing, and observing, Connie Wilson and I have just finished her Memoir entitled "A Girl Named Connie." For those who remember Bill Wilson and Wilson's Dry Goods, you will also likely remember their daughter, Connie.
In short, this is a story about Connie's discovery on a crowded gravel playground at the Old Edmonton High School (our elementary school) by a disgruntled playmate) that she was adopted.
She never told her parents what she knew, but spent the next forty plus years searching for answers and avoiding confrontations from those who often wanted to tell her "what I have heard about you."
Those answers would come in the form of a phone call late one night.
This book has so many surprises (and many I did not know), that you will not stop reading, I promise.
The book will be available on Amazon in two weeks, but we are pre-ordering for those who would like to have one when we do our "book reveal" in a few weeks in Edmonton.
All you have to do is facebook or email me email@example.com and we will reserve your copy.
I need all preorders by Wednesday, May 5, 2016. Connie will autograph! The price is $12.99.
