Blog Tour Review: The Priest and the Peaches by Larry Peterson
Take a seven day journey with the five, newly orphaned Peach kids, as they begin their struggle to remain a family while planning their dad's funeral.
They find an ally in the local parish priest, Father Tim Sullivan, who tries his best to guide them through the strange, unchartered and turbulent waters of "grown-up world." A story that is sad, funny, and inspiring as it shows how the power of family love and faith can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
This is a book focused on the strength of family. The Peach kids face the death of their father followed by the realization that they have to step up and be stronger than ever if they are all going to stay together.
Now these Peaches...there are five of them. Five kids held together by their oldest brother Teddy and sister Joanie. These two find themselves thrown into a position of responsibility that they aren't truly ready for. They come to find out that the world is full of good people that will help out in the strangest of circumstances. And the Peach kids stumble into plenty of trouble and whatnot throughout the course of this book. Like moths to a flame :)
A sweet story full of faith, family and friendship.
