Publisher's Summary

Book two in the Dearing Family Series: The wedding for Ben Dearing and Christina Day is planned to be picture perfect, and the boisterous Dearing family has gathered for the big event. What could possibly go wrong?
Christina's estranged mother, that's what. The alcoholic, abusive mother who wasn't invited.
Two days before the ceremony Edna Day crashes the bridal shower and insists she's staying in town for the ceremony. What's Christina to do? After her abusive childhood, standing up to her parent calls for strength she's not sure she possesses. Besides, if she tells her mother to leave, the woman could get madder than she already is - not to mention drunk - and shame the Dearing family in front of the whole town.
Edna wastes no time making enemies. Highly opinionated Jess Dearing is set on running her out of Justus. Ben wants her gone, too. Even Lady Penelope, the Dearings' uppity Yorkie, will have nothing to do with her. Meanwhile Mama Ruth is trying to keep the peace. And feed everybody.
Blending pathos and humor, Pitchin' a Fit portrays the constantly shifting emotions between an abusive parent and grown child. How does a Christian forgive someone who doesn't seem repentant? What is the balance between forgiveness and maintaining healthy emotional boundaries?
God is there to guide everyone through this mess of a weekend. But certain people may have plans of their own.

Pitchin' a Fit was Worth the Fit

Would you listen to Pitchin' a Fit again? Why?

Yes, It was a good sketch of how non believers view Christians. Christina is a realistic picture of a new Christian. It was a realistic storyline with humor and tears mixed in.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pitchin' a Fit?

When Christina laid down the ground rules with her mother and when her mom was found in the Dearing's house on Christina's wedding day.

Which character – as performed by Peggy Sowersby – was your favorite?

Not real sure at times they sounded so similar.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

not certain.
