"WOW What a book I read about 10 books a month and this one was by far one of the best I have read. I laughed, I cried and even got mad. This is a great read."
"I was sobbing and ugly crying by the end. It was an incredibly beautiful story," - Joe Hempel (Winner of 2018 Listeners Choice Award). "I had to stop and walk away. I couldn't finish ONE page."
FROM THE AUTHOR: Readers often ask, "Why did you write this book?" First, I wanted to contribute something very different to literature. I chose to intertwine short stories in a way that converges at the end as part of a single story. Second, I wrote it at a time when my family was experiencing tragedy. We were also adjusting from military life and trying to raise three young children. In short, it was chaos. It took that experience for me to realize just how many parents live, at times, in total chaos. I was not alone. Humor (sometimes the only medicine) helped us get through our trials-that and treating others with respect and kindness, which is almost always returned. Anyway, that's the short version. I hope you take a chance on this new and different type of story. Best, Jeff
THE STORY: It's a tale about the power of hope and the importance of knowing what matters most. But that's not all. There are dark forces about the marsh. Melvin Scott (a family man) and others can feel their presence. Scott doesn't realize he's on a collision course with a long dormant fear. After an unexpected encounter with a bully from his childhood, Scott senses that he must once again face that enemy from his past. But this time, they're not children anymore.
Connect Savannah News & Opinion: "The magic of the marsh is on full display in Forever Across The Marsh. Truly, the book is unique in that it deftly weaves seemingly separate stories together into one story. Humor is a major part of Forever Across The Marsh, but that's just one factor. . . .The book also rolls in some deeper meanings. . . ."
