Melvin Scott is poor. Not the kind of poor where you don't have any money. He's poorer than that. He has mountains of debt. Scott then leaves a stable job in the military to start a new life with his wife and young kids near Savannah, Georgia. In his attempt to make it on his own, Scott finds a life of total chaos, which is pretty much standard for anyone with young children.
Meanwhile, there are dark forces about the marsh. Scott and others can feel their presence. Scott doesn't realize he's on a collision course with a long dormant fear. After an unexpected encounter with a bully from his childhood, Scott senses that he must once again face that enemy from his past. But this time, they're not children anymore.

What People Are Saying
"I've been a reader my entire life. Couldn't put it down. Bet you can't either. The author has successfully woven an inspiring, relatable, serious and funny tale that makes you NEED to know the outcome. And probably the most successful part of this book is the humor. If you can read this book without laughing out loud, then you probably aren't very much fun to be around." - Mike
"I haven't laughed that much in years and I read this until 5:00 in the morning for I just couldn't stop reading and I am a 87 year OLD woman." - Nan
"I was given this book as a Christmas gift... She said it 'spoke' to her and after reading a few lines she knew she had found my gift. This author has done an amazing job weaving a story that I couldn't put down. He took me on an emotional roller coaster from laughing out loud to someone must have been cutting onions nearby. I LOVED it, incredible fun, and I'm truly grateful to my daughter-in-law and Mr. Pearson for a 5 star gift " - Dave
