Benjamin Church came to the grange hall expecting to meet someone else, but then the girl in a red dress looked across the dance floor and smiled…
Passing through Perfect is a heart-wrenching, Southern family saga that starts on the night Benjamin fell madly and completely in love with Delia. Once he tasted the sweetness of her kiss, he envisioned them spending the rest of their life together.
He didn’t stop to consider her daddy was a learned Pastor and her mama a woman with a college degree; he only knew she set his heart to racing. When he touched his mouth to hers, he forgot the hardships of being a sharecropper, forgot what it was like to work from dawn ‘til dark and forgot that nothing in Grinder’s Corner ever really changed.
Benjamin’s only thoughts were about lying together every night, sitting side by side on the front porch, and raising a family. Yes, he knew there’d be heartaches. Every couple had their share of heartaches, it was to be expected; but he never imagined such a tragedy would befall their family.

Passing through Perfect
Another incredible read from the Wyattsville family saga. A touching story set in the Deep South that shows how racism affects a family and the ultimate heartache one man carries with him as he tries to make a better life for his son. Bette Lee Crosby definitely pulls you in on this one...a must read!

Well written Southern Lit
1946 and Benjamin Church is coming home to Grinder's Corner, Alabama after serving during the war. While away his Mama passes, and he heads home to see his Daddy. The leased land is not all planted, his Daddy has given up. Benjamin steps in works day and night to get the farm up and running. Daddy gets him to go to a harvest event and he meets Delia. Their love story is sweet, honest, and sad. We meet Paul, Jubilee, Carmella and Sid once again...The story goes on with you feeling like you are living their lives. I didn't understand the title at first, but half way through you totally get why she used this title. It was so well written, with the language written as it was spoken during the late 40' and 50's by both "colored" and white folks. It made me sad and angry to be reminded of how we treated each other in the South, during that time, but made me proud when he was on his way North, and people treated each other a little better. This is the 3rd in the Wyattsville series, and I enjoyed every minute.
