About this title:

Synopsis:

John and Joan Archer believed that his retirement from the army and the end to incessant moving would foster an even stronger family unit for the Archers. However, after moving back to Fitzgerald, Georgia, they soon realize that small town life does not promise to be a utopia. Subtle changes begin to occur in their family dynamics and in their children.

At first, John and Joan do not recognize the signs of Doug's addiction because they are camouflaged by Doug's natural charm and their own denial. Throughout the next ten years, they suffer much heartbreak as Doug enters one drug rehabilitation facility after the other, all proving to be futile.

Along this path and along Doug's own odyssey, the family members learn to lean on God and to trust His guidance.

About the Author: John Ross Archer, Sr. retired as colonel from the U. S. Army where he served 23 years. Archer wrote one other book, Pegasus. The inspiration for Surviving the Gauntlet: an Ideology of a Drug Afflicted Family arose from his family's passage through the younger son's drug addiction years. Archer, of Tifton, Georgia, is also a member of the Gideons Association and an avid motorcyclist. He was married for 49 years to Joan Jamerson of Sylvania, Georgia, and has two sons, one daughter, and five grandchildren. Lori Bohannon Ansley has been a high school English teacher for 21 years. Surviving the Gauntlet: an Ideology of a Drug Afflicted Family is her second writing venture with John Archer, the first being the novel Pegasus. For Surviving the Gauntlet, Lori drew upon her relationship with God and her own life experiences with people fighting drug addiction. Ansley lives in Sylvania, Georgia, with her husband of six years, Tommy. They have three sons and one daughter.
