Collierville, TN Author Publishes Autobiography

( God's Acorn, a new book by Gwendolyn Thomas-Sudduth, has been released by RoseDog Books.

God's Acorn tells of the harshness of growing up in the 1960s South. How does one overcome the reality of an environment of welfare, illness, suicide, and death without becoming mentally ill? The book is a real-life illustration of author Gwendolyn Thomas-Sudduth's determination and will to survive in a jungle of chaos. God's Acorn shows how she overcame poverty, despite the statistics that show many welfare mothers remain receiving government stipends for life. Illness is pervasive in the welfare community due to a lack of medical services. Suicide and death typically follow those who do not have the support of family and friends during the struggle for a better life. Thomas-Sudduth takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride, running the gamut from devastating lows to exhilarating highs. Her book focuses on the influences that dominated her will to move forward despite the cards that had been dealt to her.
