SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY- A Harmony Novel by Jodi Thomas, (c) 2010. I love stories about misfits and the unwanted of society and how they try to fit into life in a small town. It’s not always easy to fit in but the homeless find there way there. Harmony is a small town in Texas. It starts out with a dream an elderly woman named Stella is having portending something bad will happen in Harmony. Something about a gas spreading all over the town. Next is the story of Reagan Truman, only Truman isn’t her real surname, she’s a homeless girl who is taken in by an elderly man named Jeremiah Truman. He tells the town she is his niece so they accept her. Somehow she just fit in and she’s working at the diner where she talks to her friend Noah and meets a man named Gabriel Leary, who limps three miles into town to collect diner takeout. For some odd reason he’s using another man’s name and getting his mail and having packages delivered at a building in town. There’s also Edith who works in the diner as a waitress, and Liz Mathewson a lawyer fresh out of law school, trying to make a name for herself. She meets Gabe who unsettles her life a little. Liz’s brother Hank is romancing the local sheriff Alex McAllen but she won’t settle down for a wedding. I may have left a few people out. Does this sound like a good book? Well I think it is!
WELCOME TO HARMONY by Jodi Thomas, 2010. Wow! This author has written 23 books that all take place in Texas! MOst have the word TEXAS in the title too! This on is about a homeless orphan girl who claims to be a relative of a woman she met in a nursing home. When the woman passed away sixteen year old Reagan traveled to Harmony Texas where she hopes to be taken in by Miss Beverly Truman’s family. She ends up living with Miss Truman’s crotchety old brother. So far it seems an enjoyable book.
