Jeffery Tracey Sr., a devoted writer of short stories, has completed his new book “A Family Torn Apart”: a gripping true narrative in the perspective of a young boy about his reunited family and the struggles with alcoholism, abuse, abandonment, and poverty that they have dealt with.

Author Tracey Sr. writes about the family’s experience of being evicted for various times: “It was Monday, August 31, 1964, when our family got evicted for the fifth time. We packed all our belongings into the car. We climbed into the dented 1957 Chevy. Mom slid in behind the steering wheel, and Mike rode shotgun in the front seat. Alan and I climbed in the backseat. Since Bob left us, I no longer had to sit in the middle, so I sat next to the door. The car was getting much roomier as we pulled out of the driveway.

"I turned around and gave the house one last look. I saw the wrecked garage and thought, If Mike had not crashed the car into the garage, we might not have been evicted again. Life isn’t fair. Life is what it is. We just have to be strong and carry on.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jeffery Tracey Sr.’s emotionally resonant work about four boys and their parents who separated in 1954 and has reunited in 1958. Read on to find out if they can weather through life’s storms as a family or will be torn apart again.
