In the summer of 1957, Cal Jackson has his carefree life disrupted by new schoolmate, Jessie Myers, whose unbridled curiosity leads them to exhume a long-dormant mystery.

Hollis, Virginia, a tiny wrinkle in the map, is a quiet place of unlocked doors and a distinct right-and-wrong line. Hollis claims several eccentrics: a recluse who lives with animals and thinks he’s a cousin to the Vice-President; a church sexton who never stays for services; a flamboyant half-Indian who’s the community’s chief provocateur. In the summer of 1957, Calvin Jackson finds his carefree Hollis life disrupted when a new schoolmate, Jessie Myers, moves to the hollow. Jessie’s novel approach to life causes Cal consternation, and her unbridled curiosity leads them on a mission to exhume a long-dormant secret.

  Another home run , 09/22/2012
Reviewer: Melba Worley
Well, Jim has done it again, he has written a book that is full of nostalgia, faith and life lessons we can all take to heart. The characters in the book remind me of people in my life, and some of them I can almost see as 'real' people that have been in my past. Not only does Jim make his characters believable, but he gives them true-to-life issues they face and work out in a manner we can all take something from. This book is about an area that is familiar to me, and reminds me so much of the place my mom grew up (and that I used to visit often growing up). The characters and places take me back to a wonderful childhood, filled with fun, faith and special people who taught me unforgettable lessons. If you want to read an enjoyable book, that is believable and real, pick up a copy of 'Porches and Crossties' today. You will not be disappointed, and the author is one of integrity that you can trust.
