Some things are so wide and deep they can only be told in a story. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a story is worth a thousand pictures. Birth, death, resurrection, loss, and love cannot be described or explained. We know them by touch. Stories invite touch. Most of these have been read aloud by the author to friends and strangers at his own table, on mountaintops, in neighborhood pubs, even in church. They are collected here in the hope listeners might want to share them as well. It can get dark on the mountain, but....
There is no night that is so dark
That it can quell the slightest spark;
The faintest light, as dim and far
As from a solitary star,
Will shore the heart and stay the mind
And show the way the soul must find.

An Enjoyable Collection of Short Stories
12 Short stories with interesting characters
The variety of the stories. Some of these stories are set in modern times, mentioning cell-phones, sport cars,and modern conveniences, while others seem to be in the 1800s, riding horses, traveling long distances without being able to communicate with their family for weeks.
I liked that some of the characters from one story come back in a later story. Henry Mitchell’s writing transported me to towns in North Carolina that I’ve visited before. I could almost see the mountains!
Wayne Paige did a nice job narrating this book. He has an interesting voice that grows on you!
I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!
