about

Every night of revival--1945 to 1956--the Evangelist and his family carried the mostly Appalachian folks to whom they ministered on up to a higher place. Worn down bodies in from the heat and dust of a sharecropper's cotton fields or unventilated rooms of the mill barely made it over to the local Pentecostal church house, to the shelter of a raised-up tent or bush arbor. But by the time they sang, shouted, and prayed in response to the Skondeen family's music and preaching, something shifted. In Hidden Biscuits, Audrey Skondeen Ward's memories come alive by way of her writing, as words, songs, and voices long silent are connected through a Deep South landscape. ""I loved reading these stories. Audrey Ward's prose is alive and draws vibrant pictures which opened up a world so different from my own take on life. A thought-provoking and ultimately satisfying read, beautifully told.""--John Sam Jones, author of Welsh Boys Too""Audrey Ward is a natural storyteller with an original, heartfelt, and soulful voice. She brings her wisdom as a pastor to her roots as the daughter of a traveling Evangelist, and her tales of finding faith and coming of age in the Deep South will touch readers everywhere.""--Elizabeth Fishel, coauthor of Getting To 30: A Parent's Guide to the 20-Something YearsAudrey Ward has served as an elder in United Methodist Churches of the California Nevada Conference for thirty years and is currently the Pastor of the Saint Helena congregation in the Napa Valley. Her column, ""Regarding Children"" has appeared regularly in local as well as national papers.
