The Mountain’s Silent Cry
By Phil Evaul
Daniel feels his family slipping away while all he can do is watch helplessly. He knows the importance of heritage and values to survive a hard life in the Appalachian Mountains of the 1940’s. But his children are restless, dissatisfied with traditional ways, and want to make life in their own image. The Pittman family becomes the battleground for the conflict of a deep and stable past against a vague but alluring future.
Grow Old With Me
Novel #1 in the Quilt Trail Series
A modern dayBeauty and the Beast, meet in their fifties when a disfigured carpenter becomes a guest at a bed and breakfast in the western-style tourist town of Love Valley, NC.
Benjamin Pruitt plans to repair the town’s buildings before retiring to a solitary life. Sarah Campbell longs for freedom since her long task as caregiver has ended.
Can Benjamin and Sarah piece the tattered remnants of their lives into a beautiful design to warm their waning years?
I like to write about real life problems—the hard choices in our complicated lives. God’s love and redemption are key themes you’ll find in my novels. This book is set in the western-style tourist town of Love Valley, NC. Grow Old With Me keeps the western flair of this unique town, but the characters and some settings are fictional.
I have other books planned for my Quilt Trail Series. My characters love to make me change the course of events or perhaps the entire plot. I’m writing the second book in the series. I’ll keep you informed on the progress of each book.
- Novel #2— Will feature the Quilt Barn Painter who creates the designs for the squares attached to barns and stores along the quilt trails
