About the Book
In 1964, Myrtle Dixon moved her large brood of children from the coalfields of Virginia to the quiet suburbs of Wilmington, Delaware, hoping to escape an alcoholic and abusive husband and father.

Tommy Mack: Unsettled Years is a coming-of-age story about the trials of relocation to a strange town ďup north.Ē Tomís family lives through wonderful, strange, and hectic times; when personal, family, and national issues seemed troubling and sometimes overwhelming. The conflicts and violence that had been pervasive during Tomís early Appalachian childhood donít magically disappear; they arrive in new forms. But through love, perseverance, and Godís graces, the Dixons survive, enjoy good times, and ultimately prosper as a family.

The second of four planned memoirs, Tommy Mack: Unsettled Years is a sad, funny, and ultimately heartwarming story about a young manís path to adulthood.
