Local Author Danny Pelfrey will sign copies of his new book, “As a Shield,” at Dogwood Books on Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m.
Davis Morgan, having left the ministry after the death of his wife, Julie, returns to his hometown of Adairsville where he operates a used and rare bookstore while also serving as chaplain of the police department. He and Charley, a young policeman, after discovering the body of a tattooed man, find themselves in a serious battle to bring to justice two strange villains who are threatening the safety of Davis’ daughter. While all of this is unfolding, Davis is struggling with trying to interpret his relationship with a young history teacher who happens to be his daughter’s roommate.
Safety even despite threats, the kidnapping of the woman with whom he is falling in love, the attempted murder of his future son-in-law and a crash landing in the mountains underscores for Davis the truth of Psalm 5:12, “For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.”
Danny Pelfrey, along with his wife, Wanda, is currently writing the Davis Morgan mystery series set in Adairsville. A native of Adairsville, Danny is a member of the Georgia Writers Association and American Christian Fiction Writers.
