2018 Silver Medal Winner - Florida Authors and Publishers Book Awards
Eighty-five-year-old Francis Teague hadn't told anyone about his life as a teenager during the 1940s in Monticello, Florida. There were secrets he kept from that time and hadn't revealed them to his parents, his wife, his daughter, and granddaughter for reasons known only to him. But when his granddaughter convinced him to tell her about his teenage years, he revealed things, things that were genuinely emotional, some painfully personal, some mysterious and highly revealing, yet some were utterly amusing and entertaining. But his granddaughter, Erica, was overwhelmed when she discovered a family secret.
