SPARTANBURG, SC, USA, December 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Award winning Author and Speaker Marjy Marj scored again with her second novel, Same Elephants, launched as a Top 10 New Release on Amazon. This was a highly anticipated follow-up to The Shimmigrant (released in 2019) it is an enlightening and a heartwarming novel about four friends from diverse backgrounds. Marj chose to write about an array of women with very different backgrounds and ties them so eloquently together to represent the title of the book “Same Elephants”. This is the perfect book for this day and age as it offers hope in humanity especially with today’s protest and difficult conversations about race across America. Same Elephants explores everyday relationships, the presumptuous nature of society and the ability to rise above prejudice.
