The Disturbing History Saga
The insidious seduction of a college bound girl by a hell-bent abuser . . .
Addictive, compellingly readable page-turner
From the opening scene of the book, I was transported into the world of these characters in southern Louisiana — and with every chapter, I fell deeper and deeper into their lives. Mary has clear dreams she’s working hard to attain; her innocence is tempered by the poverty of her family and the poverty of her mother’s soul. Vinny seems to bring light into Mary’s life, but has a lot of darkness to hide. Author Kami Boley is the most naturally gifted writer I have ever encountered, with her ability to interweave plots and backstories, and transport you to these worlds through characters who fly up off the pages and into my heart (or in some cases, my worst fears). This is the best of classic storytelling for the 21st century.
Accomplished work for a debut author
I enjoyed this book. It was very well written. I love books that include real world places and details. She nailed the Cajun slang, Louisiana landscape, and 1950’s experience. The girls are very endearing and tangible as people. You are transported into their world. My only issue is that I need to know what happens next! Please finish Part 2, ASAP 🙂 This is an accomplished work for a debut author.

This is a truth of storytelling that my author Kami Boley from Boley Books, LLC understands to her core. Life’s themes of love and family and innocence and forgiveness and so many more, she has explored them beautifully in her new novel, The Gator Leaves Nothing Behind.

What real events inspired the Disturbing History Saga?
Aside from the strong historical aspects, my novels are a re-telling of one woman’s harrowing experience when love turns dangerous . . . a true story of domestic abuse cleverly wrapped in fiction.
Some women suffer abuse in silence fearing the judgement of others. These books are meant to give those women a voice . . . a quiet strength . . . a message of hope that will help them to find a way out. To give those that have suffered, and are suffering still, my heartfelt nod of solidarity.
Some have stated that my book covers are scary . . . and they are . . . because domestic abuse IS scary. It is scary for the adults, and even scarier for the children who witness it.
I would like to share the dedication from my newest book The Gator Leaves Nothing Behind, Part II, with those that have experienced or witnessed domestic abuse . . .
To surviving histories and building futures . . .
For all the souls and bodies damaged by domestic violence—may your scars heal and may you find equanimity and all its synonyms.
I want my books to serve as a warning and a roadmap to bypass the horrific circumstances that imprisoned Mary Poche.
