Legacy of Despair by John Stubblefield

Begat by Brokenness.....their Imprint on Society was an Ugly Scar. Inspired by actual events, Legacy of Despair chronicles the troubles and triumphs tied to the icy fingers of the Great Depression. No one is born "bad to the bone," but enormous economic pressures plunged many unfortunate souls into the midst of unspeakable sorrow. Few escaped unscathed. Yet some were able to outfox adversity and arrive at the top of the heap still standing. It's 1935 in St. Claire, Tennessee and Fred Summerset has agreed to work for food---an arrangement that allows the teenager to provide the major sustenance for his family of eight-----a permanently injured father, haggard mother and five siblings. His older brother, Tom, had to quit school and go to work to pay the rent on a small cottage after the bank foreclosed on the family farm. The other kids, Roy, Junior, Sally and Irene, had to pitch in to help make ends meet. When she wasn't otherwise occupied, Liz, the mother, baked pies for a local restaurant and toiled in the garden. Then came the war. World War II touched the lives of all four Summerset boys. Fred and Tom ended up in the navy. Roy was drafted into the army. Junior joined the air force. In the middle of everything, Woody, their dad, had a stoke and died. If it weren't before, Fred's life became a wild roller coaster ride of ironic twists and turns with excruciating ups and downs. Legacy of Despair is a penetrating story about tomorrow.
