#1 Best Literary Fiction 2015 – #fridayfiction

He’d returned home thinking Grinder’s Corner might have changed, that there might be a few new businesses, that perhaps acceptance had blossomed into hope, but looking at Otis he could now see the future looked a lot like the past. He measured the reality of that thought against a lifetime of loving his daddy and against a heart that still ached to hear his mama’s voice. His own dreams seemed pitifully small by comparison.

After only a few moments, he decided the love in his heart outweighed whatever plans he had made in his years away from home. Setting aside thoughts of one day being a mechanic, Benjamin knew he would be what he was destined to be: a farmer. It was their way of life. He would follow in the footsteps of his daddy and his granddaddy. In time he would grow to be rooted to the earth as Otis now was.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
