Dear Hearts and Gentle People
About the Book
The 55 true short stories tell entertaining experiences of the author and of her family and friends. Most stories are of a humorous nature but a few tell of experiences not so humorous, but interesting because of an unusual or unexpected twist. Many, but not all, story settings are small town, either in the author's present day Beachburg, Ontario or in hometown Coe Hill. These are good Canadian-flavour tales. Readers can usually relate to the human foibles which endear us to so many of the story characters. Most stories have happened between 1950 and today. A few photographs scattered throughout add to the interest. This is a book suitable for reading as many or as few stories as time allows in one sitting. These stories are ideal for reading to an audience as a part of entertainment. All stories have satisfying, usually happy endings. They are warm, "fuzzy" -type, family stories with which most people could identify.
