Just a dot on the map of the northwest, Lumby looms big in the hearts of its residents. The townsfolk consider each other family as well as friends. And though the annual cow race can bring out the competitiveness in people, when times get tough, there is no better person to turn to than your nearest neighbor.

Lumby is thrown into the spotlight when one of the most important paintings of the twentieth century, The Barns of Lumby, is stolen. Town matriarch Charlotte Ross has a very personal connection to the painting-and to the artist, Dana Porter. And as a media frenzy descends on the little town, one of the actual barns disappears overnight from the rural landscape-and pieces of it begin showing up in the strangest places.

From the Author:

Although many reviews have compared my novels to those written by Jan Karon, Garrion Keillor and Phil Gulley, I personally try to stay clear of comparing and contrasting one author to another.
    

What I can say, though, is that Lumby, and its valleys, streets and townsfolk, are an escape - a gentle, quirky sanctuary from life's harsher realities - because at the heart of the town I have authored is the decency and honorableness of good people who are carving out the best lives they know how.  It is a town that is reminiscent of yesteryear, a community as it was intended to be - caring, forthright and authentic.  And within that wonderful place, humor is a mainstay and an antidote (as I think it is in life) where the moral compass usually points due north unless someone has dropped it in the PortiPotty at the county fair.  The series also embraces the monastic community of Saint Cross Abbey where some resourceful monks make tremendous rum sauce. 



From Christian Book Previews:  "The Lumby Lines goes straight to the heart. The simplicity, humor, and downright friendliness make reading it a pleasure.  Readers will close the book with a sigh of contentment and a desire to visit Lumby again. The author has faithfully carved out a slice of small-town living and topped it off with a large helping of humor. This reviewer can't wait for her next visit to Lumby! "

From the Inside Flap:

Just a dot on the map of the northwest, Lumby looms big in the hearts of its residents. The townsfolk consider each other family as well as friends. And though the annual cow race can bring out the competitiveness in people, when times get tough, there is no better person to turn to than your nearest neighbor.

But the bucolic temperament of Lumby is thrown into turmoil when one of the most important paintings of the twentieth century, The Barns of Lumby, is stolen. Town matriarch Charlotte Ross has a very personal connection to the painting -- and to the artist, Dana Porter. As a media frenzy descends on the little town, one of the actual barns disappears overnight from the rural landscape -- and its pieces appear in the strangest places.
