These qurky and loveable characters include twelve-year-old twins whose "creative" pet care is appreciated by neither their mother nor thier geriatric poodle, George; Faye Beth and Harvey Newman, a married couple who have lived for seven years with a gaping hole in the roof their house and have no plans to fix it; and the industrious deacons of Grace Baptist Church, whose decision to paint the sanctuary uncovers a shocking , twenty-year-old secret. WATERMELON DAYS & FIREFLY NIGHTS celebrates the simple, small-town goodness of neighbors helping neighbors and friends caring for friends.
