Barbaree said what he hopes others will gain from reading his novel is God loves them and God may allow things to happen, even tragedies, to change the road people are on.
“The book gives a perfect example due to people in the South in the early 1900s still depending on what cotton would do for them,” Barbaree said. “When they turned to raising peanuts it was quickly realized they could make more money per acre than growing cotton.”
Barbaree will host a book signing Nov. 17 at Peaches N Cream from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.
His book can be purchased on Amazon, at Peaches N Cream and Wright’s Gifts and Drugs in Clanton.
“There is at least one good book in everybody,” Barbaree said. “I feel very privileged to be chosen to write this one.”
