A Heart-Warming Story of an Early Florida Family
by Lowell Teal
"Bath Pond" is a one-of-a-kind, heartwarming story of unspeakable sadness and enduring love arising from personal tragedy. The adversity, warmth, and determination of the Gregson family and their friends as they work their way through the Depression and its aftermath combine for a great, feel-good read. These characters are personally bound to each other, not by choice, but by necessity. They are honest, dependable, never greedy, and, above all else, possess the stuff that commerce and great nations are built on. One of their premier qualities that can be taken to the bank is that "their goodness had power."
Everyone who shares memories of or knows people who came up during the late 1920s through the '30s and into the early '40s knows someone similar to every character in this novel. They are some of our closest friends and family members.
On another level, for the businessperson, "Bath Pond" provides an excellent example of vertical marketing: a key to wealth in any age.
