This book is the complete “The Adventures of Roland McCray” series. The stories see every moment as its own adventure, rather than the non-stop, action-packed thriller sense. They follow the life of Roland McCray from age eight to eighteenRoland’s story begins in a small, southern town in the 1960’s and recalls a simpler time to be a kid, when children played outdoors for hours instead of spending hours on their smart phones, tablets and video games. He attends a Baptist church with his family and it’s a peaceful life, on the surface.But Roland soon learns that appearances can be deceiving: the preacher’s fire & brimstone teachings don’t ring true, and his neighbors, devout on Sunday, lie, cheat and gossip the rest of the week. But Roland is inspired by his grandfathers quiet, unwavering faith that all things work for the good of those who seek good and that’s the faith Roland seeks.As a teen, Roland experiences those angst-ridden teenage years when he is no longer a child but not yet an adult, learns the pain of loss and that joyful rush of first love. He comes to understand the need of forgiveness and acceptance in an often confusing world and begins his own search for truth. Enticed by more temptations than ever, he believes in the quiet morality of his grandfather’s belief: faith isn’t a thing to be flaunted to the world; its a quiet certainty that all things do work for the good of those who seek good. Roland holds fast to that faith as he tries to overcome the beliefs imposed on him by the church and as a guide to his own Path to God. Will Roland find his Path, that truth he searches for, or does he take the wide road that most people choose because its the easy way?Each chapter is a complete story, but taken together, they form a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. This book will quickly pull you into Roland’s world and the coming of age struggles everyone faces. Roland’s story is a nostalgic tale of a young man growing up in the south and losing his religion to find God. It’s an ultimately satisfying and inspiring story that will leave you with a new view of the beauty that is life!“ enchanting collection of tales from a gentler and more innocent time. But no matter when you grew up, you’ll see parts of your own childhood and yourself in these stories. Skillful and charming writing that is a pleasure to read. In certain chapters like Of Cults and Klans, I like how the author used the berries to weave through and counter the tension and depth of the other issues. Anyone who enjoys wonderful storytelling will love these books. Highly recommended five stars.”"I very much enjoyed this book. I thought the prose was excellent and the storyline deep. A child growing up in the South offers a unique look at the culture of the area in the 1970s. The author did a wonderful job of portraying this in all its complexities."“These stories are woven in such a way that you feel what Roland feels- not all lightness and brightness, but more like real life remembered in all of its shaded details.”
