Thomas Lockhart, the son of sharecroppers on a plantation in the rural Mississippi Delta, has completed his new book “The Way It Really Was”: a gripping and potent autobiographical account of the author’s life, from the age of six to adulthood.

In beginning his book, Thomas Lockhart writes, “The Bible says, ‘There is trouble on every side.’ It took a while for me to understand what the writer was saying. If you turn to the east, north, south, or west, there is trouble, and the only way you can beat it is to not get ‘involved’. People will tell you today, ‘I am staying out of the way.’ There are trials on every hand.”

Published by Page Publishing, Thomas Lockhart’s inspiration tale is primarily a book about the author’s life from as early as he can remember, the age of six. This book covers multiple facets of his life, the good time and the bad times, rising and falling in life. The author uses a passage from the Bible about having trouble on every side to get through life, and the author’s intention is that those who read this story yield the lessons he imparts and gain something from his powerful words.

The author credits God and his faith in God for his success. He has had to endure many hardships and struggles during his time on earth, overcoming the state of Mississippi’s limitations for people of color, where limited opportunities for people of color are excused. The author’s greatest wish is that young readers of this book always know that the grass can be greener on the other side and to keep on fighting for what one wants.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “The Way It Really Was” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
