Thousands of readers have fallen in love with acclaimed Quaker writer Philip Gulley's "Home to Harmony, a charming novel of a small town with a kindly spirit whose endearing and eccentric residents are like old friends. In this new edition with a bonus chapter from its sequel, "Just Shy of Harmony, readers will ponder the mysteries and miracles that make Harmony a place worth visiting again and again.Written in a warm, down-home style, this novel chronicles the moving and humorous world of Quaker pastor Sam Gardner in his first year back in his hometown. Laugh and cry with Sam as he reflects on the quirks of human nature in such memorable vignettes as "The Aluminum Years," in which a bumbling Sam mulls over the proper aluminum item to give his wife for their tenth anniversary. In another unforgettable story, the church quilt mysteriously displays the image of Jesus, drawing throngs of the faithful to the remarkable "Shroud of Harmony." Through it all, Sam's love -- for Billy Bundle, the "World's Shortest Evangelist"; Dale Hinshaw, the narrowminded church elder who "knew just enough Scripture to be annoying, but not enough to be transformed"; and all the others -- shines through in a collection of stories that readers will treasure for years to come.

From AudioFile:

Some people are blessed to know what they have when they have it, needing no ruby slippers to remind them that "there's no place like home." Quaker pastor Sam Gardner wants to spend the rest of his life in his hometown of Harmony. He appreciates the simple joys, as well as the hilarious quirks of human nature he finds there. Philip Gulley's collection of short stories captures the essence of small-town, congregational life with gentleness and perception. In telling his own stories, he quietly, yet compellingly, captures the town and its inhabitants. His love for them all, even the ones he doesn't like very much, shines through the humor and introspection that make this collection one to treasure.
