The gems of wisdom learned from his cigarette smoking, liquor drinking, textile working father help guide Storm Sanderson in his quest to become a Baptist minister. Storm and his wife Cynthia are faced with the moral and social dilemmas of the Vietnam War and the racial unrest surrounding the integration of public schools and churches in the South.
Called to a rural church in South Carolina in 1970, the young pastor quickly finds out that his new congregation is a part of a community that is embedded in the history and traditions of the Civil War, a little more than one hundred years after the last shot was fired. Facing the new school year’s court ordered plan of desegregation, Preacher Storm is put to the test during this unprecedented time period.
A Storm in the Carolinas takes a look back into a turbulent time in history, chronicling the life of Preacher Storm Sanderson who offers leadership and inspiration to a divided community. Intermingled with tales of crime, corruption, alcoholism, social injustice, and redemption, this novel offers inspiration while encompassing the simplicity of deep-rooted Southern Life.
The experiences of new writher W. Scott Jones, having lived in the South his entire life, lends authenticity to the characters of this novel. Born in Alapaha, Georgia, he grew up in a rural area near Sumter, South Carolina. A graduate from the University of South Carolina, he loves to write, motivate young people, tell a good story, and have fun. He has been married for thirty-one years to his wife, Bridget, who is a successful Licensed Professional Counselor. They have three incredible grown children.
