"Many social ills in society are evidence of a deterioration of family values," the authors say. "Our book resurfaces those values that have been diluted over a period of time."

A heartwarming labor of love that brims with enlightening insights on family and sacrifice is The Buntyn Family's tribute to their beloved matriarch. "Cornbread in Buttermilk" (published by Xlibris) is served with some appetizing food for thought about preserving wholesome family values and spirit.

"Cornbread in Buttermilk" is a biographical account of Emma Lee Buntyn’s life, fondly called Pappie by her family. She, like a tragic hero, had been stripped of her vestures as a consequence from acquiring and raising six 'urchins.' She was once known to be a natty, well-dressed, even fashionable dresser. Now, the Buntyns are no longer urchins but responsible adults and their gratitude for her patience and sacrifice became the very fabric with which this tribute is called upon. "Cornbread in Buttermilk," a recipe that, for The Buntyn Family, evokes a flood of nostalgic, affectionate memories, gives readers a profoundly moving portrayal of an ordinary woman who has lived an extraordinary life. It also shows her remarkable feat at single-handedly raising a family that preserved the values which are increasingly becoming obsolete - either due to radical liberalism or indifference - in today's time.

"Many social ills in society are evidence of a deterioration of family values," the authors say. "Our book resurfaces those values that have been diluted over a period of time."

A statement of empowerment as it is a testament of courage, "Cornbread in Buttermilk" recaptures the fleeting values of humanity's social structure: fear (reverence) of God, faith in family and fundamental education. Most importantly, it offers an entirely rewarding literary treat teeming with timeless wisdom on love as a desideratum in the rearing of a strong family and legacy.
