Interesting book... Left me looking for more. It's a great book to read in pieces, as it's almost just a collection of short stories written by a man who returned to his hometown and got involved in everyday life mainly through the volunteer fire department. The book gives a good impression of life in the smaller towns of America.

Michael Perry is a "write from the heart" kind of author. This book leaves me with a sense that I know what he is experiencing. It deals with serious subjects and situations with warmth and sense of humor. Thumbs up! Leaves me wanting to read more of this author. PJ Doyle
