Eva Davis' new book 'Peeridge Kids' tells the incredible true tale of the author's life growing up and the trials her family faced throughout the Great Depression
MONROE, Ore., August 24, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Fulton Books author Eva Davis, a former manager for a high-tech company in Silicon Valley and lifelong storyteller, has completed her most recent book "Peeridge Kids: A Family Legacy": a powerful and honest story of a poor family's hardships during the Great Depression, and the many trials faced before success was found.
"My parents shared a love that could singe the corners of the bedsheets," writes Davis. "They survived 56 years of marriage on lots of courage, understanding, forgiveness, tolerance, acceptance, hard work, sacrifices, and incredible love. They were inseparable. They were totally devoted to each other and their family. These two people brought six of us kids safely into the world. They tried to teach us to be compassionate and loving, but most of all, they wanted us to hold our family close within our hearts. They loved us and raised us to the best of their ability and did without so we could have. Each time I think of my parents, I thank God that I was privileged to have known them and to have had them for my friends and parents. My dad and mom shared some of my laughter, some of my tears, and some of my dreams. I never outgrew my parents' love or my need for their love. I've made many mistakes in my life, and I pray this book won't be another one. I will write the truth as I see it and as much as I dare. Maybe something I write will help change the way my family treats one another. We're worlds apart, yet we have a yearning for one another. I've come to accept the fact that it is not always possible to separate the good from the bad, and maybe I should not even try. I will just have to believe that maybe it was all the will of God. If just one family member changes their life for the better, then my book will be a masterpiece. There are few of us who haven't had some failures and crises in our life, but I hope my family can rise above them. My sisters and brothers took one path in life, and I another. I know both my dad and mom were proud of the path I chose, and so am I. They say one's children are the stars in one's crown, and I pray we lived up to that saying, but only Mom and Dad know for sure."
Published by Fulton Books, Eva Davis' book is a raw and personal account of her childhood that gives readers a glimpse into an important era of American history. Despite not having the means to live comfortably, Davis shows just how her family survived and the incredible amount of love and pride they were rich with.
