Summer Book Club Selection and Giveaway

Come home to small-town America in Phillip Gulley's delightful book Home to Harmony. With wit and warmth, Gulley introduces us to a colorful cast of characters in the picturesque community of Harmony, Ind. Publishers Weekly enthuses,

Occasionally, a simple book feels like home, and its characters become cherished friends. These vignettes will doubtless become favorites, not only for the quarter of a million people who enjoyed Gulley's Front Porch Tales, but also for new readers who will respond to the Garrison Keillor-style humor and pathos of fictional Harmony, Ind. The town's characters include the wise Quaker pastor who narrates the book; a childless couple who spend their life savings (and then some) to wrest their niece from the grip of her alcoholic parents; and the narrow-minded church elder who "knew just enough Scripture to be annoying, but not enough to be transformed." This book is pure joy.

Filled with funny anecdotes and poignant moments,  Home to Harmonyis a slice of Americana you are sure to love. Meet affable Sam in the video clips below.

"Sometimes what we think we need isn't what we need at all, and what gets thrown in for good measure is that which fills our hearts." -- Phillip Gulley
