Publishers Weekly Review

Christmas in Harmony

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Gulley's beloved Harmony series takes a festive turn with this delightful novella, featuring Quaker minister Sam Gardner and the intimate circle of eccentrics who comprise his congregation. The infuriating church elder Dale Hinshaw is up to his usual schemes, this time planning an all-out "progressive nativity scene" on Christmas Eve that will convert the heathen while turning a tidy profit for the church. Gulley's trademark humor is much in evidence, as when he muses on the irony that Dale wants to raise a "Quaker militia" to forfend any terrorist activity on Christmas Eve, or describes how the church's Christmas card list gets longer every year because even one-time visitors who drop a small check in the collection plate gain "a place in our directory in perpetuity." More extraordinary than the jesting, however, is Gulley's theological sensitivity and often profound reflections on parenting, traditions and the Christian story. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Christmas in Harmony

Library Journal


(c) Copyright Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Quaker author Gulley returns to the quaint town of Harmony, IN (Home to Harmony; Just Shy of Harmony), and the eccentric members of Pastor Sam Gardner's Quaker church. Sam reflects on the true meaning of Christmas as church elder Dale Hinshaw embarks on yet another of his hare-brained fund-raising schemes, a progressive Nativity scene involving the whole town. Fans who love these quirky characters and Sam's wry take on the nature of Christianity and the meaning of life will rejoice at spending the holidays with them. An essential purchase for libraries owning Gulley's previous Harmony books. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
