Eleven-year-old Samuel was born as Master Hackler’s slave, and working the Kentucky farm is the only life he’s ever known—until one dark night in 1859, that is. With no warning, cranky old Harrison, a fellow slave, pulls Samuel from his bed and, together, they run. The journey north seems much more frightening than Master Hackler ever was, and Samuel’s not sure what freedom means aside from running, hiding, and starving. But as they move from one refuge to the next on the Underground Railroad, Samuel uncovers the secret of his own past—and future. And old Harrison begins to see past a whole lifetime of hurt to the promise of a new life—and a poignant reunion— in Canada. In a heartbreaking and hopeful first novel, Shelley Pearsall tells a suspenseful, emotionally charged story of freedom and family. Trouble Don't Last includes an historical note and map. From the Hardcover edition.

Trouble Don't Last Always is the story of an African American Viet Nam Veteran, now a permanent deacon in the Roman Catholic Church, and how through the grace of God and with the support of his family, friends, and church community, he survived the difficulties and hardships that life gave him and his family. This book tells how he weathered the storms and troubled times that war, poverty, sickness, racism, and the death of his father brought into his life. It is a timely story of hope and inspiration for everyone, but especially targets those who feel that they have nowhere to turn in times of trouble. His journey from Greeneville, Tennessee, to Cleveland, Ohio with a stopover in Vietnam is a story of how troubles and hard times can be diverted or changed when we take responsibility for our actions and let God into our lives. The Reverend Deacon Friend believes that the words of wisdom from his parents as well as his own sense of enlightenment upon his consecration in the Catholic Church are important words for readers to hear. The Reverend Deacon Friend is a Vietnam veteran who is in a master's degree program at Ursuline College, Pepper Pike, OH, and is a deacon at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Cleveland, OH.

His mother abandoned him. His drug-dealing dad landed him in the middle of a gunfight. After entering the foster care system, he fell through the cracks. He was rejected by everyone, known by no one... Born to a teenage mother whose hopes and dreams for her son were shattered by her own drug addiction, author Shane Salter was thrust into parenting his younger brother at the tender age of four. His first look at the world was through a broken windowpane into an alley leading nowhere. When his mother walked out and left him, he kept it together and took care of his brother until they found foster care, a system as threatening to a child as any dark alley in New York, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, or Los Angeles. He sought what his mother was unable to give: nurturing, guidance, and the opportunity to be a child. With all odds against him, he survived and emerged more determined than ever to succeed.

Making moonshine, working blue-collar jobs, picking fights in bars, chasing women, and living hardscrabble lives . . . Clayton and Saford Hall were born in the backwoods of Virginia in 1919, in a place known as The Hollow. Incredibly, they became legends in their day, rising from mountain-bred poverty to pickin’ and yodelin’ all over the airwaves of the South in the 1930s and 1940s, opening shows for the Carter Family, Roy Rogers, the Sons of the Pioneers, and even playing the most coveted stage of all: the Grand Ole Opry. They accomplished a lifetime’s worth of achievements in less than five years—and left behind only a few records to document their existence. Fortunately, Ralph Berrier, Jr., the grandson of Clayton Hall and a reporter for the Roanoke Times, brings us their full story for the first time in IF TROUBLE DON'T KILL ME. He documents how the twins’ music spread like wildfire when they moved from The Hollow to Roanoke at age twenty, and how their popularity was inflamed by their onstage zaniness, their roguish offstage shenanigans, and, above all, their ability to play old-time country music. But just as they arrived on the brink of major fame, World War II dashed their dreams. Berrier follows the Hall twins as they travel overseas, leaving behind their beloved music, and are thrust into the cauldron of a war that reshaped their lives and destinies. Through the brothers’ experiences, the story of World War II unfolds—Saford fought from the shores of North Africa to Sicily and Europe and finally into Germany; Clayton fought the Japanese in the brutal Pacific theater until the savage, final battle on Okinawa. They returned home after the war to find that the world had changed, music had changed . . . and they had, too. IF TROUBLE DON'T KILL ME paints a loving portrait of a vanishing yet exalted southern culture, shows us the devastating consequences of war, and allows us to experience the mountain voices that not only influenced the history of music but that also shaped the landscape of America.

My purpose of writing this story is not just for me to open up to you about my past issues, but for you to be enlightened and inspired through my story. Hopefully you'll instill what you learned and help someone else. This book is not an overnight change or 30 day process book. Nothing comes that easy in life, you have to take step by step. Even today I struggle with some changes because I want the changes I'm making for my life to fit my values which is a journey to travel. I've yet to keep learning as long as I live. I want nothing but happiness and success for all. Believe in yourself and not because I told you to, but do it for yourself. It's time to make that change and time to grow and rebel against any negativity. Where ever you are I'm with you. I'm down for a rebellion when it comes to fighting for happiness, peace, or anything positive in your life. We will gain victory as one. If nobody believes in you I believe in you, and make them believe you!
