Publisher's Summary

Book two in the Dearing Family Series: The wedding for Ben Dearing and Christina Day is planned to be picture perfect, and the boisterous Dearing family has gathered for the big event. What could possibly go wrong?

Christina's estranged mother, that's what. The alcoholic, abusive mother who wasn't invited.

Two days before the ceremony Edna Day crashes the bridal shower and insists she's staying in town for the ceremony. What's Christina to do? After her abusive childhood, standing up to her parent calls for strength she's not sure she possesses. Besides, if she tells her mother to leave, the woman could get madder than she already is - not to mention drunk - and shame the Dearing family in front of the whole town.

Edna wastes no time making enemies. Highly opinionated Jess Dearing is set on running her out of Justus. Ben wants her gone, too. Even Lady Penelope, the Dearings' uppity Yorkie, will have nothing to do with her. Meanwhile Mama Ruth is trying to keep the peace. And feed everybody.

Blending pathos and humor, Pitchin' a Fit portrays the constantly shifting emotions between an abusive parent and grown child. How does a Christian forgive someone who doesn't seem repentant? What is the balance between forgiveness and maintaining healthy emotional boundaries?

God is there to guide everyone through this mess of a weekend. But certain people may have plans of their own.

    "great christian book"

    I liked this book much better than authors first book. it deals with physical as well as emotional abuse that affects the person from childhood all the way into adulthood. then it deals with the issue of trust as well as forgiveness for the abuser from the abused..even as christ also forgave us. narrator was fine. it will good to see what the author's next book deals with or where she goes from here. had a beautiful love story.....no illicit sex.

    "Great Story & Narrator"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lady Penelope & Pogie - Lady Penelope was hilarious, the epitome of how small dogs truly are. And the description of Pogie after eating those espresso beans made me laugh out loud.


    Have you listened to any of Peggy Sowersby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and this one was my favorite. She did a great job with all the different voices!


    Any additional comments?

    I found this book very entertaining and I can't wait to listen to the next one. The characters were realistic and I loved their witty banter, reminded me of my own family. Narrator did an excellent job voicing so many characters. I look forward to hearing her read more books and I look forward to the next book in this series. Good clean fun!
