No better Series for down home humor - HARMONY Series Jul 5, 2007
If you have not read The Harmony Series yet, you better pour that cup of coffee or tea and dig in! You will not be able to put it down until your neck is sore and your back hurts, and you are completely blurry eyed. It is almost as good as getting to the bottom of a cornetto ice cream cone!
It took me about 2 chapters before I GOT IT, before I got the down home humor and wit of Phil Gulley. I wait on baited breath for the next in the series to come out. Until then I can satisfy my Harmony cravings by reading Front Porch Tales and other wonderful thouht provoking stories.
Phillip Gulley is my all time favorite author. We own a bed and breakfast in Rocky Mount Virginia (The Claiborne House B&B). I am almost positive every character in this series lives right here in this town. We have one of his porch books ON our front porch and guests love reading his anecdotal tales.
You don't know what you are missing!
I LOVE this series! Feb 16, 2007
If Sam was my pastor, I'd be a regular church goer. All of the Harmony books are warm, touching and hilariously funny without being the slightest bit sugar-coated. Sam and his flock are real people with all their foibles. I've known people like every one of Mr. Gulley's characters Sometimes I want to shake them; sometimes I want to hug them. Mostly they make me laugh till my sides hurt; sometimes they make me cry.
I bought this book for my local library because it was the only one in the series they didn't already own, and I KNEW that other people reading the books would be disappointed if this one wasn't available. I hope I brightened someone else's day by giving the book as much as reading the book brightened my day.
It doesn't get better than this.
Delightful return to Harmony Dec 12, 2006
Pastor Sam Gardner is back with his quirky Quaker flock. As usual Dale Hinshaw is full of schemes to spread the Gospel. This time he has given up on Scripture eggs and is now sending Salvation Balloons which are strategically aimed at liberals and unsaved people. Sam encounters problems in his own household when he and his wife can't agree on a vacation spot and the parishioners argue over everything from putting in a new furnace to who to include in the ladies' celebrity quilt. With his usual gentle humor, Philip Gulley brings to life the colorful and quirky characters of Harmony, Indiana, much to the readers' delight!
Can't wait for more... May 24, 2004
Every Phillip Gulley book is like traveling back home. The characters make me laugh, cry and give me hope that I, too, will make it through the next bump in the road. These books remind me of the Dorsetville series by Katherine Valentine. Keep them coming!
Best of Harmony! Dec 27, 2003
This had to be my favorite "Harmony" book by Phillip Gulley! I laughed out loud in several places. This is a book of FICTION and it pokes fun at various aspects of a typical congregation, from the well-meaning but misguided people who judge others more harshly than themselves to those who truly do have Jesus in their hearts, but are overpowered by the strong voices of other church members. Poor Deena Morrison is still single, and everyone is trying to marry her off! Dale Hinshaw now has his "scripture balloons" sailing off to convert the heathens in Chicago, and Sam's wife wants the vacation she's never had. Oh, and then there's the replacement of the "memorial oven" in the kitchen where the annual Chicken Noodle Dinner is made! I hope Phillip Gulley continues to write about Harmony and it's inhabitants!
