“Doug Wallace's memoir of a childhood of poverty and abuse is a compelling book with the message that when all appears wasted there is a way out.”
— Larry Granados, The Book Carriage, Roanoke, TX
In this raw testimony of a heartbreaking, hardscrabble childhood, Doug Wallace paints an unforgettable portrait of a child determined to free himself from the cycle of poverty that strangled his family for generations. With a genuine voice and a keen eye on the class divide in America, the author unflinchingly reveals the painful experiences of class prejudice and life on the fringes of society.
Separated from the haves by his poverty and from the have-nots by his desire for more, Wallace learns to use every person, every situation, and every encounter to realize his dream and serve his community. Everything Will Be All Right inspires readers to overcome any obstacle through tenacious will, relentless drive, and indomitable faith.
