Temecula, CA (Vocus) October 6, 2010
A timeless tale of dreams and sacrifice awaits readers in the engaging pages of The 7 Kids. A book authored by the late William D. Cole, this Xlibris release follows the journey of seventeen-year-old Keith Seaward as he struggles to live a life filled with responsibilities as the eldest among seven orphaned children.
Keith does not want anything more than to play baseball in the majors. He knows he would be picked by the scouts after seeing him pitch during practice. However, after the terrible accident that took both his parents’ lives, his life shatters into pieces. He realizes that the greatest burden has befallen upon him. As the eldest of seven siblings, he is forced to make excruciating decisions that would dictate his and his siblings’ future. Will he pursue his lifelong dream of having a baseball career or will he stay and accompany the remaining members of his family? The 7 Kids tells all.
A modern-day Huckleberry Finn tale with a family-in-distress theme, The 7 Kids brings readers to think and realign one’s beliefs and priorities. It sends a heartwarming message of love for the family and strong faith in God.
The 7 Kids will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
