All Southern. No Belle.

“This book grabs you by the collar and drags you in to bear witness. A riveting read to the end.”- A. Waters

“Beautifully descriptive story-telling, it will captivate you from the first to the last page.” –P. McDonald

“The bonds between these women were so touching.” –Amazon Customer

The Parker women of Riverton, North Carolina are known for three things: southern graces, storytelling, and sassy mouths. The second to some, would be considered outright lying, the last a surprise to those who view them as ladies with a gentle upbringing. But the Parker legacy has never been what it seems and keeping up appearances in their small town has trumped the truth every time. Just as Charlotte is about to break the news of her plan to strike out on her own, her daughter, Janie, returns from college to announce she’s pregnant. Her nosey sister, Purdy, becomes desperate to take control and devises a sinister plan to rid the Parker’s of yet another family secret. But Janie’s upbringing has instilled a deeper faith in her than anyone realizes. Compelling and unexpected, Wide Planked Porches is a moving novel that will make you rethink family duty, faith, and fortitude.

For fans of Kathryn Stockett (The Help) and Sue Monk Kidd (The Secret Life of Bees), a must-read for lovers of the South, and eavesdroppers who love to listen in on someone else's family drama.
