I just got a proof copy of “Papa’s Pearls!” With a minor edit here and there this book will be finished, and I can finally share my father’s heart with the world. I’m so excited!
I sent out a few review copies and have received some great comments. Here are the one’s I’m using for the back cover:
“For centuries storytelling carried wisdom, that illusive blend of experience and intelligence, from one generation to the next. That is, until television changed the family and with it the art of storytelling forever. Reminiscent of Steinbeck, “Papa’s Pearls,” by Diane Flynn Keith, shares stories of her father’s life and his hard earned street smart insights: You Don’t Kick Someone When They’re Down, Ya Gotta Do What Ya Gotta Do, Tell Yourself You Like It, and many others. She writes of experiences and a history we all share, personal, enduring and wise.”

“What a wonderful story of courage, perseverance, and love! If only everyone could teach these lessons to their children it would be a different world.”
~ Mariaemma Willis, M.S., Co-Author with Victoria Kindle Hodson of “Discover Your Child’s Learning Style”
“Written in a truly delightful style, Diane Flynn Keith uses the power of story and connection to capture the deep wisdom that supports and keeps families thriving! The pearls she shares can be held by all of us as we move through every phase of our lives.”
