Stenson Beckett was born in a small town in Alabama. His family was poor but Stenson didn’t know it. His mother made the shabby double-wide trailer they lived in comfortable and nurturing for the little boy.
He did things little boys do. He built a treehouse with his best friend from kindergarten, Luna LeReux. He joined the Cub Scouts and his mom took him to church every Sunday. He was a happy child until his father destroyed it all.
Stenson’s mother was a saint who loved the boy with all her heart and did everything to shelter him from her abusive, racist, alcoholic husband. One fateful evening, Stenson’s world changed forever when he witnessed his father murder his mother by slashing her throat. The brave little boy tried to fight the man to save his mother, but he was too small and almost lost his life that night.
