What a wonderful book. If you love to watch the Andy Griffith show, if you love comfort food, or anything that gives you that warm feeling that you get around good friends and family, this is a must read. It just makes you feel good, as do many of Philip Gulley's books.

My father was a Methodist minister, mostly in small towns. This book brought back a rush of memories of both small town living and church life. Just like the settings, Gulley's 'Harmony' books are filled with humor and warmth. I regularly found myself calling my siblings to read aloud a portion of the book because Gulley had so perfectly captured a person or a moment exactly like those with which we had grown up. Gulley's easy-reading writing style adds to the intimate feeling you have with the characters, especially Pastor Sam. And the gentle way Gulley lays in his faith and common sense messages is comfortable and unthreatening, even for those not looking for a lesson. I'm sure cityfolk who understand that their community is like a small town will appreciate the down home flavor of the book. People are people. However, I'm not certain the unchurched would find the book very appealing. That, of course, leaves them two options. Get to church and get to know Gulley's people. Or, miss some really enjoyable reading.

This book leaves you smiling, laughing out loud, and pondering what ministers actully have to put up with in our churches. It is a real 'feel good' book that left me loving visiting Harmony.

Laugh out loud funny and a book I couldn't put down. It's on my "best books" list.

This, as all the books in Gulley's Harmony Series, contains subtle, delightful messages about the human condition. Broad appeal! I have given it as gifts or loaned my copy to a diverse group of people, and all want to read more.

I rented the audiobook from the library and listened to it in the car while on a trip with my cousin. It was wonderful, we are from a small Iowa town, and wish our pastors had been so wise. This is priceless.

I enjoyed this book so much, at times funny, touching and full of good, biblical truths this book is a breath of fresh air in today's hectic world. I only wish that I could live in Harmony, although I could do without Dale Hinshaw, I know his double!

This is the best book I've read in a long time. It's so easy to get into. It is funny, as the other reviews say. But it's so real. We used to live in a small town 30 years ago and as I read, I can put a name or a place from that town on every chapter I read. I'm only half way thru the book and can't put it down. Worth every penny!

A joy to read! Gave me many laughs, and thought provoking at the same time. I have read 2 of Philip Gulley's books, and bought 2 more.

I read this book and the other (Just Shy of Harmony) and thoroughly enjoyed both of them. They were very much like the Jan Karon 'Mitford' series. I certainly hope that the author continues this series.

I think I just finished a new 'all-time favorite'. This book will make you forget your problems and count your blessings. Mr. Gulley has a wonderful way with telling a story. You will laugh; you may cry. I guarantee you will have a lot to think about after this one. Please come to Harmony and spend some time there!

This is a fabulously funny, warm and wonderful audio tape. My husband and I couldn't wait to get back in the car to listen. It will restore your faith in the basics.

After finishing Jan Karon's wonderful MITFORD series, I did a search for similar books... and was pleased to find the Harmony series. I've read a few of them so far, and for the most part am enjoying them... the series offers several enjoyable characters and many good life lessons.

Love the dry humor of Philip Gulley - if you are in need of a smile or a peaceful read this is the book for you. Occasionally there is a good laugh to add to the fun. The author defines his characters well - so much so that one gets to know them and feels if you could stroll into Harmony that you could address some of them by name.
