by Elizabeth Harris
About the Book
"What am I to do now, Mama?" By Elizabeth Harris will take you back to the 1950's when my Uncle Charles Revis, aka, Coy Bronson followed his dream in the entertainment industry, in cultivating many working relationships of the day including, Ethel Waters, Charlton Heston, and James Dean, just to name a few.
The book begins with Coy attending his good friend, James Dean's funeral. Right after the funeral, Coy finds himself caught up in another friend's problems with her movie script that is missing, and seems to revolve around a murder mystery. As his life begins to get complicated, he starts thinking back on his childhood and remembering mystery and tragedy all through his life. He realizes the one person who holds his future and life together has always been his mother. Her strength in finding ways to support her ten children after her husband dies is phenomenal. After Coy's mother insists on him following his dreams in acting, writing, directing, and producing, he finally pursues them, and encounters many amazing discoveries and mysteries along the way.
The book can be compared to the TV Series in the 70's-80's and Movie, "The Waltons". Coy's family had to depend on each other, putting values on what their family stood for.
