Thank God for Boll Weevils is an in-depth look at the Southern soul as seen through the eyes of two God-fearing young women as they grow up in the early 1900 s, deep in the "Heart of Dixie"; Grabbing your attention with its charming southern dialect, the story entertains you with a rich wit and humor that is reminiscent of excerpts you might read from an old Mark Twain passage.The primary narrator, Janie Taylor, does a superb job painting the canvas of an era, of a people who once dominated the Post-Civil War South. Janie then draws you in to her close-knit family and community where a strong Christian moral presence is exhibited and leaves the reader yearning to live in such a time and place.
Midway through, the book takes a unique turn as it dives into a historical fiction that merges with the factual accounts of George Washington Carver and others, whom by God s providence played an important role when faced with the invasion of a crop-eating insect called the boll weevil.
What will happen to the good people of Enterprise and Coffee County, Alabama, when their way of life, their culture, and their families are being faced with certain devastation?
