The Priest and The Peaches by Larry Peterson

The Priest and The Peaches by Larry Peterson
Synopsis: Take a seven day journey with the five, newly orphaned Peach kids, as they begin their struggle to remain a family while planning their dad's funeral.

They find an ally in the local parish priest, Father Tim Sullivan, who tries his best to guide them through the strange, unchartered and turbulent waters of "grown-up world." A story that is sad, funny, and inspiring as it shows how the power of family love and faith can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

The Priest and the Peaches is a sweet wonderful story about faith, trust, family and friendship.   When the Peach kids dad passes away unexpectedly, the five kids -Teddy (18), Jeanne (17), Dancer (14  - also known as James), Beeker (10 - also known as Robert) and Joey (6) are left orphaned and stunned.  Teddy is suddenly thrust into the world of being the responsible adult and not only has to deal with the death of his father and his guilt over not saying goodbye, but how he'll take care of his siblings, deal with everyday teenage issues and put food on the table. Their father left them with a mess of unpaid, past due bills and hardly any money.   The kids soon come to find out what their grandfather meant to the community and what L Y N - loving your neighbor really means.  

The Priest and the Peaches is a christian historical novel set in the 60's and is available only in ebook format. The story is well written with 3 dimensional characters and the Peach kids will steal your heart as you experience all the ups and downs with them.  Highly recommend it.
