Book Overview

Readers everywhere have fallen in love with Philip Gulley's Home to Harmony, a charming novel of a small, friendly town whose endearing and eccentric residents are just like old friends.

In his warm, down-home style, Gulley chronicles the humorous and occasionally moving world of Sam Gardner, a Quaker pastor who has just moved back to his hometown. Laugh and cry with Sam as he reflects on the quirks of human nature in such memorable vignettes as The Aluminum Years, in which Sam tries to come up with the perfect gift to give his wife for their tenth anniversary, or Shroud of Harmony, which features a church quilt that mysteriously displays the image of Jesus. From Billy Bundle, the World's Shortest Evangelist to narrow-minded church elder Dale Hinshaw, the town of Harmony and its residents are worth visiting time and time again.

Philip Gulley is a Quaker minister, writer, husband, and father. He is the bestselling author of Front Porch Tales, For Everything a Season, Home to Harmony, Just Shy of Harmony, Signs and Wonders and If Grace is True. He and his wife, Joan, live in Indiana with their sons, Spencer and Sam.

Occasionally, a simple book feels like home, and its characters become cherished friends . this book is pure joy.--Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

   Sweet and nostalgic essay-like writing.
Homey and uplifting writing is very refreshing during rough times. I don't agree with the comparison that it is in a league with Jan Karon's series. Her novels follow a story line which progresses forward and develops a plot, whereas Mr. Gulley's writing is more like a series of essays on life in a small town He is in time throughout the book. Past to present and back again. Both authors' descriptions are similar. I' ve learned a lot about the faith of the Quakers.
I was hoping it would be the same as the Mitford series, but it wasn't. The writer described the characters, not a story line.
   A true to Good Life story
Good life story is a true to life. You will learn to love the characters of Harmony. You will want for them all the things they want. You will learn about their story and laugh with them. You will really want the next in the series when you finish this book.
   Fantastic series
I enjoy the Harmony series. These books make me ponder life. I highly recommend them no matter what your religious affiliation is. Some reviewers think he's not the right kind of religious for them, but that's too bad. I have a hard time with religious people who think they have all the answers. He pokes fun at us flawed human beings. Life is pretty rigid without a sense of humor I enjoy Philip Gulley's columns in Indianapolis Monthly magazine and I plan to read every single thing he has written. I would go to his church if I were a church goer. I don't think a minister would want that kind of recommendation, but I think his approach to religion is softer and more compassionate.
   Like The Andy Griffith Show but with homily tossed in
I'm stuck half way through. I don't know why I didn't read it. Even though it is not a utopia of vision of the afterlife, it is a fictional world where the problems are small even if they represent the same sins that destroy lives and society. If you enjoy the show and its adventures, this is the one for you.
   For Christians and those who think Christians are hypocrites
When I stumbled onto this book on a sale, I was curious as to why Gulley was compared to other people. halfway through the book, I agree. I recommend it to people who think Christians are hypocrites because it exposes those who claim to be Christian but are actually doing evil. The book is choppy at times, but each chapter has a point to make and I find myself laughing out loud a lot.
