Set amidst the beauty and tragedy of rural Mexico, Teardrop Headlights leads readers through the dark world of a traveling preacher’s son caught in a web of abject poverty and growing religious madness. (Father Bill Wigmore, Episcopal priest and recovery author)
Teardrop Headlights is a story of survival, of “making do” despite the most daunting circumstances and unspeakable tragedy. Ultimately, it is a story of self-discovery, healing, and hope...of overcoming the demons of abuse and addiction and finding one's way back to the God of love.
Set amidst the beauty and tragedy of rural Mexico, Benjamin Moore’s touching and compelling tale leads readers through the dark world of a traveling preacher’s kid caught in a web of abject poverty and growing religious madness. Addicts often find the wounds of a traumatic childhood insurmountable, and few would challenge Benjamin’s right to join those ranks. Instead, we witness a man slowly coming to peace with the father who brutalized him and the inner demons that tried to crush his soul. Benjamin writes in an unpretentious and engaging style that opens us to the inner workings of a young boy’s troubled mind leading to the later tragedies of addiction. Without self-pity or judgment, he finds his homecoming by traveling the path of Truth that every addict must find and follow if he is to be set free.

Teardrop Headlights is beautiful, inspiring, deep, at times heartbreaking, and an overall lovely book. In a very delicate and respectful way, this book submerges the reader in the author’s family life, led by a father who was a missionary pastor. While it does this, it takes the reader back in time into the author’s own heart, mind, and soul, allowing us to experience some of his struggles and helping us understand the kinds of things that some people endure during childhood and in some cases perhaps, even helping the reader overcome his own struggles.
I am one of those persons.
Reading Teardrop Headlights caught me thinking about what having faith in God means and calls for; it helped me see things clearer, which I really appreciate. Benjamin Moore writes with perfect pace, suspense, and great insight, keeping his reader desiring to know what happened next until the end.
Will there be a second book?
