Letters found in a well forgotten attic reveal the goings-on in the day-to-day life at the English country estate. Sebastian Wentworth Greathead (pronounced Grey-Theed!) and his dear aunt Countess Cordillia Honeyknob Pryme, have much to say by way of countryside slander. Poor Sebastian is harassed buy an avid butterfly fan, while the Countess wallow in the everyday theatrics of Butterbrooke as well as the adventures of a favorite nephew at various ports of call.
How Faith, Family and Ducks built a Dynasty!
"What has propelled this unlikely family to the top of TV's ratings, as well as two best-selling books? The answer will surprise you, especially looking at the cover... The book is a very insightful read about growing up poor in Louisiana, and how following God and a dream resulted in profit and stardom. Willie and Korie grew up on opposite sides of the river and track, but the unlikely couple married at 18 and moved on together from there. It is an easy, fun read, and may get you hooked on watching their TV series, if you don't already--a novel premise, a functional family!!"
