TO VEGAS AND BACK synopsis:
The story begins with a twenty-six-year-old woman living the American dream in the 1960s. She was a homemaker and mother of three in the beautiful suburbs of Philadelphia. At thirty-two she gets a divorce and trades brownies and carpools for pasties and feathers as a Showgirl in Las Vegas. In a nutshell, this woman leaves her husband in 1972 and is swooped up by a rich man who wants to make her a showgirl. He moves her to Vegas and shortly after, he disappears.
She then meets a Vegas mobster who introduces her into the underground workings of Vegas casinos. She realizes her dream when she nails an audition and becomes one of the most sought-after showgirls of her time in the Tropicana’s famous Les Folies Bergere. Finally, this woman meets a man who wants to marry her and take in her children—a man who nearly destroys them with violence, alcohol and abuse over the course of six years. Suzanne can tell this story firsthand, because this woman is her mother.

Laura Schroff, author of An Invisible Thread says, “A riveting, gut-wrenching memoir tells in astonishing detail what went on behind the closed doors in Suzanne Krauss’ childhood home. This page-turner, To Vegas and Back is a true testament of her perseverance, resilient human spirit and how the unconditional love between a mother and daughter can lead to forgiveness and healing.”
