The Priest and the Peaches Book Summary
Historical fiction novel set in the Bronx in the mid-1960s
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
My Thoughts on this Book!
I had the honor to read and review Larry Peterson’s book Slippery Willie and it was such an awesome book I was excited to read this one as well. This is another wonderful book from Larry, a historical written to young adults, but I feel children and adults will relate to this as well.
The sudden death of a father tears this family apart, leaving 5 Peach kids to take care of themselves. The two older children were old enough to take care of their three siblings. As we follow this heartwarming story we learn to love the unique characters that are so believable, taking them into our hearts. As they continue their lives without their father, they show love and happiness as a family and faith in God and each other. There are a lot of lessons we all can learn from this wonderful story, and especially the lesson of forgiveness such as was displayed in this story so warm.
I recommend that you grab a copy of this book for your teens to read and enjoy. How nice it is to have good clean books that our teens can read and enjoy.
