Item description for Daddy, your shoes didn't fit my feet by Fred Holbrook...
Overview I heard the fearful agonizing screams coming from my mother. My heart filled with fear when I saw my stepfather, Woody, holding Mom's long hair and beating her unmercifully. My twelve year old mind became filled with rage when I saw her fall into a huge briar patch. Mom screamed, "Oh merciful Jesus, help me," as Woody continued kicking her. It seemed like God and family had long ago deserted us. I hurried into the house, quickly loaded the rifle and ran to where Mom was laying, covered with blood and begging Woody to help her out of the briars that had entangled her. Raising the rifle, I aimed between Woody's eyes as my mothers words, "No son, please no," seemed distant as I pulled the trigger. A book you can't put down; eight children filled with fear, loneliness, hunger, hopelessness, and sexual abuse; unloved, unwanted, uneducated and left to face the world alone. Where was God?

Poignant wisdom and a gripping read Apr 15, 2007
Fred Holbrook's life-story makes not just for a gripping and fascinating reading experience, but is salted with bits of valuable wisdom and poignant observations throughout. Fred is a true renaissance man: Hard hitting, elk-packing, man's man on the outside... and a poet on the inside. My only regret is that there isn't a string of Fred Holbrook books on the shelf.
Good reading! Mar 10, 2007
This book was written by a dear friend of mine. It is about his life and how he triumphed from adveritey to success. Which goes to show, you can't keep a good man down. All you need is a oppertunity.
