From debut historical novelist Jenni L. Walsh--and just
in time for the 50th anniversary of the Oscar award-winning
film, Bonnie and Clyde--Becoming Bonnie is the
untold story of how wholesome Bonnelyn Parker became half of
the infamous Bonnie and Clyde duo!
The summer of 1927 might be the height of the Roaring
Twenties, but Bonnelyn Parker is more likely to belt out a
church hymn than sling drinks at an illicit juice joint.
She’s a sharp girl with plans to overcome her family's
poverty, provide for herself, and maybe someday marry her
boyfriend, Roy Thornton. But when Roy springs a proposal on
her, and financial woes jeopardize her ambitions, Bonnelyn
finds salvation in an unlikely place: Dallas's newest
Living the life of a moll at night, Bonnie remains a
wholesome girl by day, engaged to Roy, attending school, and
working toward a steady future. When Roy discovers her
secret life, he embraces it—perhaps too much, especially
when it comes to booze and gambling—she tries to make the
pieces fit. Maybe she can have it all: the American Dream,
the husband, and the intoxicating allure of jazz music. But
her life—like her country—is headed for a crash.
Bonnie Parker is about to meet Clyde Barrow.
