How to Knock a Bravebird from Her Perch

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



At just seventeen years old, Belinda finds herself orphaned and alone. When the handsome, self-assured Ricky Morrow proposes marriage she agrees without a second thought. A decision she will soon come to regret...

Belinda gives birth to their first child--a baby girl. Ricky makes good on his promise to provide for her and she rewards him with another baby girl, then a third and fourth. Still, life as Mrs. Ricky Morrow is not without its sacrifices. Her body, pride, and even her sanity are at the mercy of a husband who would rather see her dead and broken than happy and free.

To survive, Belinda must be as cold and vicious as Ricky. But will she lose her girls in the process?

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 30, 2014 – When Pecan's doting father dies unexpectedly, she marries a boxer named Ricky Morrow and becomes pregnant almost immediately. Unfortunately for Pecan, things go from bad to worse: Ricky becomes violent, and she falls into a cycle of pregnancy and physical abuse. But when Pecan meets another man and tries to extricate herself from her marriage, she's forced to fight for her life and the lives of her children. From the start of Simmons's novel, readers will empathize with Pecan's struggles. While the author's prose is solid, the narrative is somewhat predictable. The plot and eventual outcome of the novel will be obvious to many readers from the beginning. And this predictability will likely take readers out of the story.
