PLEASE TELL ME IF THE GRASS IS GREENER is the dominant work of writing of the Millennium. This compilation of seven short stories is peerless of it's kind. Each of the storytellers will take your hand and lead you through the unpredictable, and sometimes disgruntled, fields of life. "Even Snowflakes Have Flaws" takes on the essence of a young woman and her struggle to grasp the perfection society is fixated on. In "Eyes Like Mine", Braylee tells of his determination from boyhood to avoid stagnant roads that could end him astray. Jude is faced with the struggle of choosing love or lust in "Sweet Potato Pie". In "Nothin' Worse Than an Unmade Bed", Promise regrets not knowing how to love her man right. The thought of his leaving devastates her. The narrator kicks knowledge to the wanna be playas in "What Goes Around". His experiences as a bachelor will floor you. In "Daddy's Little Girl", the narrator conquers the anger she had towards her father. She realizes that it is time for her to not necessarily forgive and forget, but to move on. And lastly, James Sr. forces you to be an accomplice of his brutal thoughts as he fights to cope with failed dreams and lack of will in "You Ever Seen A Grown Man Cry". PLEASE TELL ME IF THE GRASS IS GREENER is beyond powerful, moving and all those other common descriptors. It is unfeigned.
My name is Sharon Schwartz. I am a homemaker and student. I reside in Chatsworth, Georgia with my husband, Patrick/and children, Camrie 22, Joseph 13, and Tori 10. I am a member of Grove Level Baptist Church. I enjoy reading, taking walks, writing poetry, admiring the stars and creation. I love to spend time with my family, watch my son play baseball and watch my little one dance. I enjoy good conversation and laughter with my oldest daughter. I have had many jobs over the years prior to having children and even after having them. The most important and hardest job of all is being a mother. A mother contributes many things to her children. The only thing that really matters is one of eternal significance. I wish to leave a legacy of faith in my Creator God to my children. If I accomplish anything it is for my children to know God and to connect to Him and His purpose for them. That is what this book is all about. If I give my children everything possible, yet neglect them spiritually I have labored in vain as a mother. I dedicate this book to my husband Patrick and to my children Camrie, Joseph and Tori.
