"A riveting book. That it is based on a true story makes it all the more compelling." Best-selling author, T. Davis Bunn. Thirteen year old June Harper can describe in astonishing detail the colors of a sunset in Heaven. She's been there. Based on a true story, "The Rose of June," tells the amazing saga of June Harper, a young girl whose real connection to Heaven and unwavering faith gives her the courage to stand in the gap between her family and the demon that possesses her abusive father. In the midst of the Harper's struggle to survive poverty and unspeakable violence, a humble woodsman known simply as Moses appears to help them. Orphaned at an early age, Moses ekes out a living as a trapper on the banks of the St. Johns River and knows next to nothing about his parents or his heritage. Displaying the wit and wisdom familiar to every southerner, the characters will be as beloved as those gathered for Sunday dinner. Guided by June's divine intuition, Moses learns his startling true identity as he fights to save the only family he has ever known or loved from a fate too terrible to contemplate. The local Parrish Priest, Father Patrick, endures amusing encounters with June's little brother, Reggie, while secretly aiding Joseph Greywolf, a mysterious stranger hiding a somber past. And there's Old Sally, the black baby-sitter who provides a safe harbor for the six Harper children and their mother, Mary, while exhibiting a love of God as gloriously simple and good as a buttermilk biscuit. June Harper's life is a gripping portrayal of the depths of evil, of real life miracles and everyday heroes, and a legacy of selfless love. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be inspired, and you'll never forget "The Rose of June."
