About this title


Ron Hosea's winsome, hometown characters are sure to make you smile as they spring off the page with overt wit and covert wisdom. A must-read for those who enjoy reminiscing the laid-back lifestyle of small-town yesteryear when faith was the fabric of everyday life and homespun humor made your toes tickle."
-Debora M. Coty, award-winning author of 11 inspirational books including Mom NEEDS Chocolate

Emma Gladstone loves God, her Baptist church, and yes, even her husband Earl. With wit, charm, and hair-raising moments, her homespun attitude and plain talk narrates four short stories examining the realities of life in Forbye, Florida, in the 1950s.

In the story "The Church Social," Emma finally discovers the ultimate recipe that will surely earn her notice in the Forbye Telegraph's "Talk of the Town" column. However, her pursuit is jeopardized when her arch enemy, Nelly Dalton, is accused of thwarting Mrs. Gladstone's effort.

After the preacher's sudden death, in "The Pulpit Committee," Emma conspires to find a way for her husband, Earl, to serve on the pulpit committee. Only after a shocking revelation about the baptismal pond does she get her wish; the search, in all its strangeness, ensues.

In "God Will Clear a Path," the town is on edge after a black man was spotted at the preacher's house. Tensions rise as church members find themselves caught in a power struggle between the preacher and the richest man in Forbye.

Romance isn't the only thing brewing, in "Emma and Earl, a Love Story." Friendship, true love, and a crossword puzzle championship all hang in the balance.
