Sam Gardner never dreamed he would be thanking God for Harmony's self-appointed general of the religious Right, Dale Hinshaw. God does indeed work in mysterious ways.
Amanda Hodge, who has been living with her Uncle Ellis and Aunt Miriam since her parents abandoned her years ago, now faces their return and their desire to be a part of her life again. Dale Hinshaw hovers on the brink of death, in dire need of a heart transplant The whole town is abuzz as the beautiful Deena Morrison marries the town's most eligible bachelor, Dr. Pierce. And in the midst of these triumphs and tragedies, Pastor Sam Gardner helps the people of Harmony negotiate the sometimes rocky road of family life, faith, and forgiveness.
Although Harmony's characters develop and grow with each novel, one thing remains constant -- Philip Gulley's ability to capture both the flavor of small-town America and the paradoxical beauty of our own humanity.
“Entertaining and fresh, and makes a reader wish for a town like Harmony to live in.”
“With the storytelling ability of Garrison Keillor … Gulley spins tales that are also a bit like Jan Karon’s Mitford.”
“Gulley has a knack for drawing from true life and embroidering it to make excellent fiction.”
“[I]n true Harmony form, [A Change of Heart] provides plenty of laugh-out-loud passages.”
“Fans of Jan Karon’s “Mitford” series and anyone who enjoys gentle reads will find Gulley’s natural storytelling irresistible.”
