Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Gloria M. Prather’s new book, “At A Time Like This In Scuppernong Valley” provides an account of a destitute teenager born in a meager place where only the strong survive. She made one bad decision that happened to offend the villainous overseer. To escape his retaliation, she ran away and became a shadow-street child in a big city. This is an incredible story about struggle, survival, and the darker side of life many teenagers will never know.

The ups and downs experienced while wandering an unfamiliar city taught her many life lessons as she tried to find a safe place in tunnels, abandoned buildings, and alleyways. She was sustained by the belief that her God-fearing grandmother’s teaching would see her through. She aligned herself with determination and became a great success story, a force of stability and healing for other teenagers.
