Description

Sally Hollingsworth Stevenson is a plucky, but troubled, woman and an older mom. She has devoted herself to preparing her son Bobby for a successful, fulfilling future. When illegal drugs intrude on his life plan, Sally is ready to do almost anything to help Bobby conquer his demons, but she has no idea what a roller coaster of a ride she is in for. Groomed for the life of a southern belle, Sally finds herself in greatly reduced circumstances after putting down roots in Central Florida. Imminent poverty, however, is easier to face than the dark, recurring memories that haunt her. "The Devil Came Knocking" weaves together Sally's harrowing tales: her disturbing childhood and her adult fight to save her son. As the events unfold, those two strands of her life are bound to collide. Throughout all the craziness, Sally's irrepressible sense of humor and thoughtful nature take what might have been just a sordid, violent story and temper it with plenty of comic relief and poignant insight. Come along with Sally on a modern-day psychological misadventure with surprising twists and turns that will leave you laughing, crying and celebrating the supportive bonds we share with family, friends and beloved pets.show more
