Stories From the Porch, a collection of short stories linked by their setting: the small town of Baeburg, Ontario. Oh, it's small all right: Baeburg is home to three churches, two coffee shops, and only one guiding principle: say what you really think, and let the cow chips fall where they may. Voices ring out in these stories. A grandmother remembers sweet revenge at an epic pie-baking contest; a boy takes us on a rollicking springtime bike ride. Farmers wax philosophic, a bookseller grumbles about love and ghosts, and the whole town damn nearly mounts a coup d'état on the mayor when -- Oh, they'll tell you the stories themselves. Have a seat on the porch, grab a butter tart, and enjoy. Because life can be pretty funny sometimes ... just ask the funeral director.
