When Company Comes is a captivating story narrated by eighteen-year-old Mattie Cordell, with grace, honesty, and wisdom.

Everyone says that misery loves company and eighteen-year-old Mattie Cordell happens to agree. Things were less complicated at age eleven, when she was just a Daddy's girl and bookworm. But an unexpected twist of fate changed everything.

Mattie's father Richard loses his job. Desperate to conceal his growing uncertainties and a defying secret, he draws on the tradition of Southern hospitality and uses their home as a sanctuary for himself, family and friends. Misery makes her grand entrance on the heels of his favorite nephew, who arrives hauling plenty of baggage.

But he isn't the only one; soon others emerge with equal amounts of baggage. Unfortunately, Mattie’s world unravels with each new arrival. Now estranged from her father, their lives parallel as they both find themselves in a sea of betrayal and scandal. Can Mattie survive the houseguests? Will the family discover Richard's secret? How much will either of them endure before reaching their breaking point?

After a spiral of explosive events lead to heartbreak and even a sudden death, Mattie and Richard are forced to confront their deepest fears. Together, they will find the true meaning of forgiveness and redemption.

If misery loves company, then triumph deserves an audience.
    
Excerpt
My grandmother always advocated that I take care of myself but I couldn’t grasp the full concept of her words until my junior year in high school. Up until then I learned many lessons in life about myself, as well as the company we kept.
