Publisher Description:
Haven't we all met someone with real grit who when they got right down to the nitty gritty of it plugged away until achieving their goal? For Janet Anderson, a lot of that kind of inspiration came from Mud'ear, Big Mama, and Big Daddy Percy. The other kind came when they served farm fresh Mississippi-style buttered grits smothered with blackened catfish and new eggs from the hen house over-easy. Like the grits, the encouragement stuck. Janet's narrative of "Big Daddy Percy" is about goodness, a quality of being kind. It's a heartwarming story about phenomenal folk, with irrepressible grit and resiliency of spirit. This book also casts light on a certain enigmatic South during a pivotal era of history in the United States. One family effects change, while in pursuit of former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's promise of a New Deal. It's also a testimony, and poetry. "This recent work has something for everyone. Take a minute, still yourself and enjoy this gift that Janet has shared. Your faith will be deepened, your heart warmed and your mind challenged" -"Phyllis Enzor, philanthropist "The honesty of Janet Anderson's writing gives us a profound reminder that our futures, indeed our salvations, are undeniably linked to weighing our past." -Yvonne J. Combs, PhD Big Daddy Percy is perplexed, and almost defeated, but he's on a mission. We must all determine our good futures, and forge it as well, whatever obstacles life brings. "Big Daddy Percy" will illuminate, intrigue, hearten, and above all, fuel the imagination of everyone who reads it. It's a story of goodwill.
