I read thi irst memoir of series on a whim, and oved the heartfelt, realistic, believable and touching stories of a Quaker congregation portrayed in it.

Anothe storyline with Wayne, Deena and Sally was very sweet, and had me guessing.

Gulley 's fictional preacher, Sam Gardner, is main man of the tories, but he entire congregation really carries the stories.Sam is a gentl, observant preacher who has grown up in Harmony and ministers to the Friends church.

We meet al of the members of that church, the Peacocks, the Hinshaws, the Hodges, just some people of Harmony who shape small-town life into what it is ... and nly a small-townee could capture Harmony so sweetly.And only a preacher 's eye could capture the telling of People like his.

I feel good, quiet, salt-of-the-earth folk like the Peacocks and the Gardners and the Hodges.
