Open a book and story begins

“And so our story ends as it began…with the opening of a book.”

-William Joyce, author of children’s books

“A Land More Kind Than Home”

(Fiction) This story of two brothers growing up in a small town named Marshall in North Carolina reaches out and grabs you from the first page. Everyone knows you’re not supposed to spy on grownups, but adventurous Jess can’t help sneaking a peek at something he’s not supposed to see – an act that will have horrendous repercussions that shatter his world and that of his mute brother Christopher. Carson Chambliss, the charismatic pastor of the church where Jess’s mother worships, leads his congregation in the literal reading of the biblical passage regarding snake-handling. When an elderly church member is handed the snake to show her faith, she is bitten and left to die alone in a tomato patch. “This is a story of courage in the face of cruelty and the power of love to overcome the darkness that lives in us all.”
