Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School’s St. Bede Campus recently welcomed children’s author Dr. Beulah (B) Shelton Coyne as she shared her latest literary work “Treading Water on Ripple Creek Farm: Lily” with the students. Dressed in period clothing from the book’s setting of the Great Depression and World War II, Dr. Coyne read excerpts from her book and answered questions about the main characters and the storyline.
“Treading Water on Ripple Creek Farm: Lily” offers readers a trip back in time when life seemed to move at a little slower pace, when families and communities were closely connected, and times might have been hard but they were good. For more information about Dr. Coyne and her book, visit http://www.bcoyne-author.com/. Dr. Coyne is also the Research Associate to the Dean of the Beeson Divinity School at Samford University in Birmingham.
