Summary
The idea for this story came from the Cordell Adams' life growing up in Jacksonville, a small town in East Texas, south of Tyler. Several years ago, he wrote a memoir for his extended family about a few tales he remembered of his maternal grandmother's life. At the end of that project he realized that his grandmother's appeal as an insightful and entertaining character must be shared with a broader audience. After studying creative writing, and with a big of coaching, Cordell Adams wrote the Novel. He synthesized the essence of his grandmother's spirit into a three-dimensional protagonist named Veola Cook. Veola felt summoned on a God-given mission to improve life in her community. She had a smile, genuine or politely pasted on, and a few chosen words of advice, solicited or not, for her family and friends as well as the families she worked for as a domestic. The South in the late 1960s provides the backdrop for this slice-of-life story of Veola who possesses insatiable curiosity, a respect for and interest in keeping any man on the right track, a healthy sense of humor, and a desire to fill everyone's bellies. The main commodity that crossed racial barriers in the segregated south of the late 60s was food. Blacks and whites alike called white, store-bought bread "light bread," thus the name for the story
