Hummingbird Wars and Other Stories
Hummingbird Wars is a novelette--just the right size for a few hours of satisfying entertainment. The first fulfilling chapters from the title story will transport you to a small town where you will get to know characters like Frank Tacket, a man who suffers through the heartbreak of realizing he no longer has the trust of people he respects and Maggie Ferris, a woman who begins to suspect God's direction and her own will may be on differing courses.
Although this first selection in the novelette delves into serious matters like gossip and jealousy in the church during its seven chapters, it does have its light-hearted moments that will amuse its readers too.
Spiritually insightful, "Hummingbird Wars" introduces you into the lives of people who could be your next door neighbors and friends. And the next time you watch hummingbirds at your feeder, you may be compelled to examine your own life.
But that's just one of the stories in this eclectic collection. "Winding Up Equal" takes you inside the life of a family who experiences a major change and has to learn how to cope. Then, relax and enjoy the account of the nerdy mama's boy in "Puppy Eyes" and let your funny bone be tickled by the outrageous happenings in "The Red Tie."
And planted in between each story, like a lovely flower on a country lane, you'll find a poem from the author to stop and enjoy.
