Even if others abandon you, you must never abandon yourself. This simple truth became Terry Helwig's lifeline as she was forced to grow up too soon.

Terry grew up the oldest of six girls in the big-sky country of the American Southwest, where she attended twelve schools in eleven years. Helwig's stepfather Davy, a good-hearted and loving man, proudly purchased a mobile home to enable his family to move more easily from one oil town to another, where Davy eked out a living in the oil fields. Terry's mother, Carola Jean, a wild rose whose love often pierced those who tried to claim her, had little interest in the confines of home and motherhood. In Davy's absence, she sought companionship in local watering holes - a pastime she dubbed "visiting Timbuktu". She repeatedly left Terry in charge of the household and her five younger sisters. Despite Carola Jean's genuine attempts to better herself, her life spiralled ever downward as Terry struggled to keep the family whole.

In the midst of transience and upheaval, Terry and her sisters forged an uncommon bond of sisterhood that withstood the erosion of Davy and Carola Jean's marriage. But ultimately, to keep her own dreams alive, Terry had to decide when to hold on to what she loved and when to let go.

Unflinching in its portrayal, yet told with humour and compassion, Terry Helwig's luminous memoir, Moonlight on Linoleum, explores a family's inner and outer landscapes of hope, despair, and redemption. It will make you laugh, cry, and hunger for more.
