Senoia, GA, March 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In Deceptively Tranquil, published by Outskirts Press, co-authors and siblings Glenda Jolley and Jack Blankinship have created a suspense filled tale of one family’s adventure in the delusively peaceful Ozark mountain town they have moved to in rural Arkansas. Only the family’s faith in each other and strong moral code let them overcome their challenges and emerge more united in the end.
The Holman family are big city people. Some might even call Joe, his wife and three children city slickers. When they move to the small Arkansas town of Pipersville in the early 1940’s, they are expecting a much slower and more peaceful life than the rushed urban landscape they have just left.
So begins this suspenseful tale, and at first all goes well for the close knit family. They are welcomed into the community. Their business venture is applauded and they are instrumental in organizing a church in an outlying mountain community.
Behind the scenes, however, the reader soon discovers that they have tripped the lock to the county’s darkest secret and that their youngest son, Ryan, is now in grave danger due to a chance encounter he has had with a notorious liquor distributor dependent on the illegal booze trade. The peaceful mountain town, the Holman’s are soon to discover, may not have been so peaceful after all.
The reader of Deceptively Tranquil follows the dramatic unfolding of the Holman’s intriguing adventure and participates closely with them in their attempt, along with the town’s dedicated sheriff, to maintain not only their high moral ground, but also their lives. Is it possible for one family to survive its shared experiences and still remain united?
Because of their own background growing up in this time period so unique to American history, authors Glenda Jolley and Jack Blankinship are able to bring into play for the reader the fictional town of Pipersville and the unique geography of the Ozarks and in doing so, they achieve a rich quality to the convincing reality of this engrossing tale.
