Item description for A Town Called Woodbridge by Lon Leatherland...
Overview A Town Called Woodbridge isn't about a town. It's about the folks who live there. In 1875, recently widowed Sarah Jackson and her eight-year-old son sink new roots along a dusty road in the North Carolina foothills. In the years that follow, a small town forms around them. Miss Sophie, Emily and Sally, Del, Arlee, John and Robbie come to life page by page. Eleven school grades stuffed into four classrooms make for close friendships. An unusual Englishman teaches through astonishing examples. Kids grow up; people grow old. Homes change hands; hearts never do. Woodbridge is real life in the slow lane. Settle into your favorite chair and visit for a spell. It's a different kind of trip. It's one to share with your friends.

Great stories from a small North Carolina town... Dec 21, 2002
This is a thoroughly enjoyable book. Leatherland spins...well, I would say "a good yarn," but this is a collection of quiet and compelling vignettes from the town of Woodbridge, about the people who lived there. There's a sort of understated tone to the writing; you don't get hammered with superlatives, 'cause that's not the way things are DONE in a small town. The characters are loveable (Arlee's a hoot), some moments are deeply touching, and the book leaves you wanting to know more about their lives. Maybe a sequel's on the way? Anyway, don't read it all in a sitting; you've gotta soak in it. It's worth spending the time!
