It is a hot, sultry summer in Little Dixie, Oklahoma in the 1970s. A young man commits a robbery that forever changes the course of his life and those around him. Dually, BS explores the ironies and circumstances of the human condition, and how grace restores and redeems the human spirit. Rural poverty and injustices assert themselves as the norm not the exception in Steven L. Parker’s debut novel that captivates and charms; by the end of the novel the reader will feel he or she lives in Crow, Oklahoma, the setting of this narrative. An exciting read by an author who knows the interior terrain of the human heart, the traditions of a unique rural heartland, and most importantly, how to convincingly portray the universal human condition.
