About the Book
What happens when people from opposite backgrounds are drawn to each other, but social mores dictate that they can't be together? Years later, Attorney Slerd Bosley and teacher Jessica Cavendish explore what was meant to be, just as Slerd's own family struggles with their own family dynamic as one the wealthy, old-school leading families in a rapidly-changing southern town. The business inherited by the Botley sons is also endangered by time and change, leading to exploration of how a deal used to be made, versus what today's world allows. The daughters of these two families watch, learn, and ponder their future roles in this changed community.
“The Botleys of Beaumont County” is a sprawling tale of a deeply rooted Southern family whose traditions and beliefs are challenged in the 21st Century. Colorfully drawn, the story is layered with characters clutching the past even as troubles brought by change threaten their way of life. This is a rich and hopeful story that leaves the reader with dust on their shoes and a light in their heart"
