Ron Rush has completed his new book “The Pussy Willow Tree: Reflections of a Chaotic Life”: a gripping and potent account of the author’s life.

“What I write here is the truth as I know it. At no time did I resort to fiction to augment my story. I won’t bother to attach dates to these pages either, because as I was growing up, I had no need to be concerned about time,” writes author Ron Rush. “The stories within these pages are not in sequence but hop around and are scattered. However, all are factual.

“Suffice it to say that it was during the years of World War II when much of the story took place. I was born in 1937, if that’s a clue. The purpose for writing this memoir is neither to place blame nor to garner sympathy. I hold no animosity toward anyone, and I refuse to hate. To understand my present, the past needs to be considered too.”

Published by Page Publishing, Ron Rush’s intriguing tale starts when the author’s mother packed up the author and his siblings, reasons unknown to the children, to leave Detroit and hitchhike to a new home. They passed through many places before landing in Santa Monica. Life was chaotic living by the water, with uncertainty surrounding every aspect of his family’s life.

Eventually, the author was placed in a children’s home and orphanage, and the rare saving grace of his life is the pussy willow tree he sees there. That tree served as a rare calming factor in an otherwise infinitely chaotic and uncertain life. As this unique memoir is told out of sequence, there is a mystical quality to piecing the stories together that transcend time and place, providing a fractured but complete portrait of an extraordinarily chaotic life. Throughout his life, memories of that pussy willow stuck with the author and impacted his life in immeasurable ways.

Readers who wish to experience this enigmatic work can purchase “The Pussy Willow Tree: Reflections of a Chaotic Life” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
