Passing through Perfect, the 3rd book in the Wyattsville Series, will be available everywhere in a couple of days!

About the book:

It’s 1946. The war is over. Millions of American soldiers are coming home and Benjamin Church is one of them. After four years of being away he thought things in Alabama would have changed, but they haven’t. Grinder’s Corner is as it’s always been–a hardscrabble burp in the road. It’s not much, but it’s home.

When Benjamin attends a harvest festival in Twin Pines, he catches sight of Delia. Before their first dance ends, he knows for certain she’s the one. They fall madly in love; happily, impatiently, imprudently, in love. It doesn’t matter that her daddy is staunchly opposed to the thought of his daughter marrying a cotton farmer, never mind a poor one.

It’s true Benjamin has little to offer; he’s a sharecropper who will spend his whole life sweating and slaving to do little more than put food on the table. But that’s how things are in Alabama. Benjamin is better off than most; he has a wife, a boy he adores, and a house that doesn’t leak rain. Yes, Benjamin considers himself a lucky man until the fateful night that changes everything.

What reviewers are saying:

Crandom… Passing through Perfect is my favorite read of 2014. I think you should check it out in 2015!

Kirkus Reviews…Well-written and engaging, readers will welcome back characters from previous Wyattsville books.

Midwest Book Review, Donovan’s Shelf… This is Southern fiction at its best: spiritually infused, warm, and family-oriented – an atmosphere which permeates every chapter with descriptions firmly routed in family tradition and the South.

Indie Reader… Crosby’s characters take on heartbreak and oppression with dignity, courage, and a shaken but still strong faith in a better tomorrow.

Freda’s Voice… Just like reading John Steinbeck’s, East of Eden, or Harper Lee’s, To Kill a Mockingbird, this story is a tale of epic proportions! …And see, that the thing. The Magic Thing. Bette Lee Crosby creates characters and stories that feel so real, so alive, you can’t help but become emotionally invested.

Between the Lines … An uplifting story of family,love, kindness and hope, despite some people’s less than commendable behavior and attitudes.
