Overview

Jaydee Plumtree was born and brought up in the tiny Northwest Georgia hamlet of Spraigville. While working as a clerk in a chain drug store, he met and instantly fell in love with Heidi, a ravishing pharmacy intern. On their first date, due to unusual circumstances, they ended up in bed during which time Heidi became pregnant. She was brutally murdered just days before she was due to give birth, but miraculously her baby survived. Jaydee suddenly found himself totally responsible for the child. Faced with nearly impossible odds including his barely adequate salary, his dysfunctional family, and the hostile environment of his hometown, Jaydee strived to keep a promise he made to Heidi while also learning to adapt to a new culture. Through it all, Jaydee had to contend with episodes of sexual misconduct, flagrant drug abuse, depraved criminal acts, corrupt and greedy business practices, and racial and religious bigotry. Jaydee's life changing epiphany made him persevere in his unrelenting desire to keep a promise he made.

Editorial Reviews

Ethan Adams
What a page turner! Mr. Jaffe's inaugural novel is brimming with passion and suspense. He employs classic storytelling with a modern twist in a way that is unique in the current market. The reader will empathize with Jaydee and all he has to confront, and we hope to see a sequel in the near future. Kudos to Mr. Jaffe on this complex tale, perfectly interwoven with superb character development and imagination. Expect this book to make a huge splash. It is that good!
