Narrative Non-fiction / Personal Narrative

Blossoms of Winter is the emotional account of a middle-class family in a small East Tennessee town in which family members endure the hardships of the Great Depression, wars and personal crises, all from which they emerge stronger in spirit.

In this saga of a male-dominated family, the author takes us on a poignant, meandering journey of five high-spirited, rebellious sons in their quest to come to terms with the possessive love of their father.

As the emotional conflict between father and sons threatens to destroy relationships, the inner-strength of the mother is the glue that helps hold the family together.

In captivating narrative, the author presents a drama of discovery in which the wayward find direction, and the bloom of hope springs from the sediment of despair.

In their unceasing effort to avoid the shackles of mediocrity, the family determines the role of creativity in the revival of the human spirit. In their struggle to find the meaning of their existence, they discover God’s purpose for their journey in life.

Don Pardue Blossom of Winter

 

When I first met Ku Adams and heard the story of family and their tumultuous escape from Estonia at the end of World War II, fleeing literally just moments ahead of rumbling Russian tanks coming down their street in the dark of night, I knew immediately that this was a story well worth the telling.


Even today, this story is being re-lived across the globe.


There are thousands upon thousand of displaced persons, struggling first to survive and then to re-invent themselves in a totally new environment.


We need to pay attention.

Marylin Neilans Flight to Freedom
   

When his wife abandoned him, Ben Granger found himself faced with parenting six daughters without the help of their mother. The daughters were hardworking, loyal, and obedient, but sometimes mischievous. The father worked them like men on his farm; however, his nurturing guidance enabled them to retain their femininity. An undaunted man, he stood tall, but alone while enduring the ordeals of family separation, financial hardship, crop failures, and declining health.

Filled with adversity, sadness, and humor, Maiden Harvest is a poignant account of a simple farmer’s unflinching courage and perseverance. But the essence of the story extends beyond the mere steadfast character of a courageous man. It is also about the enduring power of unusual family love―the uncommon bond that exists between a father and his daughters, an attachment so strong that neither distance, nor time, nor even death can ever sever the ties that bind them together in an abiding love.

Don Pardue Maiden Harvest

With intimidating tales of bellowing drill instructors and their seemingly incongruous tasks, Reluctant Lieutenant captures the essence of what it meant to survive the training regimen of the Old Army. 

In this engaging memoir, Jerry Morton reconstructs his reluctant journey through basic training, advanced infantry training, and Infantry Officer Candidate School during the Vietnam era. His is a unique record of what it was like to be a conscript in the U.S. Army in the late 1960s. 

Morton's account also provides a roadmap to the sociology and culture of the military, especially the class system that divided college graduates from those with less education or economic stature yet did not override solidarity in the field. He describes his disappointment and discomfort at being "killed" during training ambushes. But he also shows how someone with a master's degree in psychology could adapt to an environment in which the army did the thinking and the soldier the doing. However unintentional, by the end of his journey Morton is no longer a civilian but an officer, adept at army gamesmanship and ready for command. 

This book offers an informative foray into the training system used by the army during the Vietnam era and valuable insight into the military culture. Veterans of the Old Army will find their memories kindled by this vivid account of one man's experience.
