A writer inspired by nature and human nature


True-to-life Americana

DOG BONE SOUP by Bette A. Stevens—ONLY 99¢/ 99p—August 5 through August 11, 2021 

 

“As with all great literature, it is underscored with life lessons particularly memorable to this [Baby Boomer] generation…”

“DOG BONE SOUP is a fascinating literary study of poverty and family dysfunction in the 1950s  & 1960s. It is written in a fast-flowing, entertaining style that kept me turning pages, one after another.

“Despite the odds stacked against them, two brothers—Shawn Daniels and Willie—manage to survive, escaping the rants of a drunken abusive father and the hardships of rural life, cutting out on daily adventures and misadventures to the likes of Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry. DOG BONE SOUP is about making the best of what you have. It’s a story about survival, struggle, and the human spirit—rising above it all. As with all great literature, it is underscored with life lessons particularly memorable to this generation…” –Frank Scozzari, author

    I’ll add my name to the list of people who have read this book and enjoyed it, Bette. I felt so much for Willie and Shawn. It made me think of some of the students I taught who didn’t grow up in the best i=of circumstances.

  17. I can heartily endorse this book as I have read & reviewed it months ago. Insight into a young boy’s mind comes from the author’s long experience with this age group, I’m sure! 😀
