Welcome to Fred: A Novel
In January of 1968 Mark arrives in Fred, Texas, from Forth Worth via a brief stay in Ohio. He has followed his father who is pastor to a 100-member church in this simple town of simple people. Mark, a young man of extraordinary intellect, has to find who he is in this town with which he seems to have so little in common. In his journey he finds more than himself; he finds his faith. A westward family vacation car trek puts a strain on the family but also provides many entertaining and humorous situations as Mark is forced to deal with many questions about himself, life, and finally--his God.
