It's summer in Harmony, but not everything is as sunny as the weather. The good citizens of Harmony are back and stirring up trouble as usual, sometimes with disastrous results.
Pastor Sam Gardner must take a leave of absence from his post at Harmony Friends Meeting to take care of his ailing father.
But when spunky pastor Krista Riley comes to fill his position, the quirky Quakers seem to fall in love with her, and it begins to look like Sam's sabbatical may be permanent. Krista's resilience is put to the test when Dale Hinshaw and Fern Hampton begin to question whether a woman can faithfully lead their flock, and it looks like the resulting tiff might just be the undoing of Harmony Friends Meeting. Will Sam come to the rescue? Finding the answer to this question makes the trip back to Harmony worth turning every page.
Philip Gulley has been a Quaker pastor for more than twenty-five years. He is the bestselling author of more than fifteen books including Front Porch Tales, If the Church Were Christian, the acclaimed Harmony series, and If Grace Is True and If God Is Love, which he coauthored with James Mulholland. He lives in Indiana with his wife and two children and is a frequent speaker at churches, colleges, and retreats across the country.
“No author can spin a good smalltown church tale as humorously as Gulley.”
