Our first book: Small as a Mustard Seed by Shelli Johnson
"Small as a Mustard Seed is that one in a million story. You will rarely find a story that can captivate your feelings and touch your soul like this one. This is a must read for any adult looking for a real story. It is far and away one of the most significant reading experiences I've ever had."
--Kindle Book Review
As a child in 1960′s rural Ohio, Ann Marie Adler finds herself caught between her father, Frank, a veteran who survived the war in Korea but with devastating post-traumatic stress, and her mother, Adele, who is blindsided by the mental illness that accompanied him home. In a series of escalating dangerous episodes, Frank confuses reality with soul-searing memories, believing he’s still a soldier fighting for his life in battle-torn Korea. During the delusions, Ann Marie and her younger sister, Jolene, become the enemy, which leaves them fearing for their lives. Unable to fully protect her daughters, Adele scrambles to keep order while her husband’s threatening and unpredictable outbursts slowly tear the family apart.
