“Beverly Varnado spins a wonderful and touching tale, weighted with the folklore and beauty of St. Simons Island. The reader is moved to recall the trials of youth and the profound triumph of  discovering great wisdom in our ‘odd’ elders.”

“ . . .one thing’s for sure, she’ll never forget the summer she first saw the marshes of Glynn.”
When her tragic past intersects with a hero’s mysterious legacy, what she does next can change everything . . .
Home to Currahee  now available!
All June Callaway wants is a simpler life and healing from a tragedy when she moves from Atlanta to the charming town of Toccoa near historic Currahee Mountain. However, her discovery of a mystery-laden treasure with a World War II connection makes her life even more complicated and threatens to waken a fear that would take her back down a road of heartache and grief. Colorful town characters help her along and the mountain itself bestows an unimaginable gift on her, but will she be able to push past her fear and solve the mystery in time? Can she, as the stranger suggested, “do it afraid”?
Contemporary Southern fiction set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Home to Currahee’s opening chapter is set on D-Day. I’m thankful for God’s timing in the release of this book as the 70th anniversary of D-Day approaches on June 6th of this year.
“A genuine slice of Southern life, chocked full of heartache and healing—with a side of humor.”
