VIDEO: South River Senior’s Inspiring Tale of Terror and Hope
South River senior Baruch Talbott and Joy Reigns Sunday school teacher Debby Coughlan recently collaborated on a new book “In the Middle of the Line.” The book recounts Talbott’s life as a young orphan caught in the crosshairs of the Second Liberian Civil War where he endured unspeakable horror that daily tested his courage and resolve.
Baruch was adopted by Edgewater residents David and Naomi Talbott in 2003. We interviewed Baruch, Debby, David and Naomi this past Sunday where they talked about how the idea for the book came to life. The story covers his time in Liberia, his escape from rebel soldiers, his adoption to a mysterious family in America and his experiences growing up in Edgewater.
“In the Middle of the Line” is available in paperback or as an eReader at BarnesAndNoble.com, Amazon.com, Apple iBooks, and Lulu.com. Some proceeds of the book will be donated to educate needy children in Liberia.
