Hometown Tales: Recollections of Kindness, Peace and Joyby Philip Gulley
In this sequel to his immensely popular bestseller Front Porch Tales, Quaker writer Philip Gulley envelops readers once again in a rare world of plainspoken and honest values. These tender stories of his life are gathered around the enduring themes of the great spiritual virtues: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Each story reminds us how we long for such virtues in a world sorely in need of the love and hope they bring. With his folksy style and rustic ear, Gulley treats his readers to a great variety of personalities from the loveable to the eccentric who make small town life fascinating. Readers will discover a simpler way of life, where things are less complicated and folks care for one another and are willing to do what is right no matter the cost.

This book is strictly for pleasure reading. I tend to get "hooked" on a good story; so, I enjoy these short stories, which can bring back positive memories of "hometown living." Since one can complete a story in one sitting, this book didn't keep me up at night because I just "had to know" the ending.
The lamest goody good stories I' ve ever read. Little house in the prairy meet kool aid.
