    Hardcover Description:

    Finally, a refreshing story from a fresh new writer that can be experienced and enjoyed by the entire family. Remember your grandma’s switch tree protruding out of the ground like a monument of discipline? Remember that black belt hanging on a doorknob with its distinguishing nickname? Have the old-school ways of raising children been abandoned? Are the methods of grandma even effective anymore? Sheila and Ronald Dempkins are only one facet of the combination that secures their family’s loving bond. Another essential aspect of the formula is Benny, their only son. Sheila and Ronald never realize that the reason their marriage survives is because of the love that they have not for each other, but for their son. Painfully they learn that the element, which strengthens a family’s bond can ultimately cause its destruction. The family, however, draws strength from the roots of its heritage, traditions, and colorful country family members. Makers of the ancestor’s treasure—peach cobbler. Meet Uncle Sho Shack, a failed juke joint dancer who is always adorned in his homemade paper clip and rubber band suspenders. Enter good ole Aunt Flappy who, in the midst of normal conversations, spontaneously yells out bible verses for the entire world to hear. These and other vibrant characters jump from the pages and into your hearts. Discipline, comedy, and enticing drama are all intertwined in this unforgettable tale about the family, adversities, and the events that make us laugh while healing our souls.
