About the Book

The Simmonses are an unusual family. Each in their own way exhibits servant’s hearts, love of family, home, country, and a strong Christian faith. They make a full circle in this writing, with each in their own way contributing. The period covered by this story was a period of upheaval in America. Integration was in full bloom, the peace movement and the Vietnam War, The Kennedy and King assignation took place during this period. George Simmons has his hands full as he guides Clearwater through safe passage during this era. Ike Simmons comes of age and aids George as he charts the course through integration of Clearwater schools. Chassity, Mamie, and Woodrow are in the middle of everything; each contributing.
