Bittick said his inspiration for penning the story stemmed from nostalgia and the importance of memorializing and celebrating life's experiences, noting, "As each year passes, the memories of the actual house, and of the people that made it the boisterous place it was all those years ago, becomes more important to the understanding of what makes life's experiences and those you share them with special."
Readers and critics are showering praise on Cape Henry House as a hilarious read, combining laugh-out-loud moments with a well-written and genuine tale of life and friendship.
"There is a lot of fun in this story and what will immediately amaze the reader is the author's ability to keep the writing natural, the characters likeable, and the party going from page to page.. Jolly Walker Bittick makes sure that the characters are realistic and that readers can see themselves in these characters."
"The story is well-written and the author paints a clear picture for readers through his casual, easy-going style. The house takes on a life of its own and puts a new perspective on the age-old statement, 'If these walls could talk!" - Sheri Hoyte, Reader Views
