With Against All Odds (published by AuthorHouse), author Larry D. Black releases the third installment in his Scroggins Family series.

Set in the 1950s, Against All Odds tells the heartwarming story of Peter “Little Pete” Scroggins, the youngest of the Scroggins brood. Little Pete is a gifted basketball player. The sport becomes his passion and soon he sets his goal on playing professionally.

As the story unfolds, Little Pete is faced with many obstacles. After severing and losing the use of his right hand, he is forced to learn to play left-handed. Additionally, several of his classmates are killed in a tragic school bus accident. And then there was the worst blow of all for Little Pete – polio.

The crippling disease robs Little Pete of his physicality and eventually his ability to walk. In a heartrending display of drive and determination, Little Pete embarks on the long journey of recovery and in the process finds love.

Much like previous Scroggins Family novels, Vengeance is Mind and Love Is Forever, Against All Odds is interlaced with core values of the Scroggins clan as they show support, love and strong spiritual dedication.

“As you read this novel, you will quickly fall in love with the Scroggins family,” says Black. “When they hurt, you hurt; when they rejoice, you rejoice. You will find yourself cheering for your team and weeping in defeat. This novel will bring a tear to the eye and joy to the heart.”
