Preacher’s Kid by author Beverly Ann White allows the reader to explore the journey of what it is like being the child of a preacher. She shares the many ups and downs that present during this life’s journey. Many people come in and out of her life, some positive and others very negative. Those influences helped to develop the type of individual she grew up to become as an adult. She saw her parent having sex and, as a very young child, wanted to see what it was like. She begins to explore in this area. Having been beaten as a child, her teacher soon found out and told her that if she ever saw it again, her father would never preach again. Beverly realized for the first time that being beaten was wrong. Amidst all of the various difficulties of growing up, she later found love and got married, even though she never truly understood love from the family who raised her.

Preacher’s Kid by Beverly Ann White deals with many of the expectations of a church and its members. Many people are forced into being and doing things a certain way for the sake of appearances. There are lots of frustrations illustrated by the author when the call is to meet public appearance, no matter what the individual feels or desires to accomplish. Beverly Ann White allows the reader to see deep within her life, and Preacher’s Kid will be a source of understanding and encouragement for those who feel as if their life has no value or that they have stagnated.
