CWG Book Blast: The Priest and the Peaches, by Larry Petersen

Without their parents these kids made it anyway. How? Their Dad had given them faith in God and family.

This month, the Catholic Writers’ Guild is touring Guild member Larry Petersen’s book, The Priest and the Peaches. It is an SOA winning novel. 


The Priest and the Peaches Summary:

Yimey knew the secret to life. He made sure his family and friends did too. Even when his beloved wife, Elizabeth, died, he kept the faith. But the booze dulled the pain and he drank too much. Then he died and left his five children to fend for themselves. They did not understand why people were calling their dad a “great man”. How could that be? Alcohol had killed him and he had left them alone. Who was this man they called “Pops” but everyone else called “Yimey”?

“The Priest and the Peaches” has received enthusiastic reviews from Catholic Book Reviews and from Jody Rakis at Catholic Fiction. During the time “The Priest and The Peaches” is featured in the CWG Book Blast, the eBook edition will be marked down from $4.99 to $1.99.
