The Characters of An Acre of Fools
The Stewart Family, wrapped in a tumultuous web of complexity and deceit, present a powerful story of of the struggle between good and evil in a world that is not so black and white as people may think.
Meet the fools this story calls family:
“Aden James is one of the very few authors who truly understands and authentically captures the reality of addiction, the mind and motivations of the addict and the splintering effects of addiction on the family. An Acre of Fools is intensely honest, personally revealing and captivating from start to finish – a remarkable read.”
-Nancy Alcorn, whose career includes eight years working in criminal justice, also is the Founder and President of Mercy Multiplied.
“The story unfolds in brisk, dramatic fashion reaching deep down and capturing your heart then flinging it – full force – into today’s buzzed-out drug culture of debauchery and shattered relationships. It’s very challenging, at times, to bear witness to this ever-evolving storyline that takes the main characters far off the typical middle-class emotional grid. It never fails to surprise; keeping the reader more in the question than on the solution side of events. The path to the family’s redemption travels outside the lines, and is certainly not a Sunday-School ending. It’s a powerful page turner!”
-George Watkins Producer/Director/Partner Synergy Films
An Acre of Fools is a remarkable story of finding hope in the midst of unimaginable chaos. As a parent, I was challenged to reflect upon the delicate balance between enabling versus isolating my own children. As a Christian, I was challenged by what it means to mature in the faith by learning to love the truly unlovable. Everyone however, will be challenged yet comforted by seeing how redemption and purpose can be found in even the most difficult of personal circumstances.
-Kevin Latty Executive Director, Souly Business
“A riveting story of unimaginable events. Aden James reminds us there are times when life brings us to ‘the darkest night of the soul,’ so that ‘God can finally have His way.’ You cannot read this book and be the same.”
-Cheryl Bachelder CEO, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Inc. and Author of Dare to Serve
“Spellbinding, suspenseful and substantive. An Acre of Fools is not just a story, its a message of hope and redemption.”
-Dr. Randy Ross CEO (Chief Enthusiasm Officer) of Remarkable!, and author of Remarkable!
Life moves quickly. So when a movie or book stops me dead in my tracks, forcing me to linger, I know I have come upon something special. An Acre of Fools does this to the reader. I found myself needing to process all of these: happiness, sadness, anger, peace, satisfaction. Very few authors can do what has been done here. A must read.
