Publisher's Summary

Tammy, an analogy of the Genesis 38 story of Tamar and Judah, is set in rural Britton's Neck, 30 miles inland of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, during 1963, the heyday of tobacco farming, that was subsidized by the government. Poverty combined with constant criticism from her mother has caused Tammy to have obsessive compulsive disorder. She loves her job at B. C. Moore's & Sons in Marion and the arrangement she has with the bank in paying for her car, which she feels she must have - even if it means she must earn extra money by prostituting. Tammy is desperate after her husband Earl's death. She is left alone with her four-year-old son Ju, whom her in-laws seek to adopt, claiming she is an unfit mother. When church people reach out to Ju, she comes to know the bluebird innocence of people who truly love the Lord Jesus. She questions the difference between these and carnal Christians, those who are saved but still leave the door open to Satan and selfish desires. She learns even more that God loves and forgives even her.

A book to remember

I looked forward to listening to Tammy everyday. Beautifully written from the heart, the story of Tammy's plight reminds us that the Lord's love is greater than a multitude of sin. The author creates an emotional connection with the reader through Tammy's eyes. Your will cry for her during her hardships and rejoice in her redemption. This is a book I will always remember as it left a mark on my heart. A true privilege to read that I will be happy to recommend to others.
