From Philip Gulley to Chicken Soup books, short stories are everywhere! And readers can't get enough. In Homemade Humble Pie Annette Smith offers a collection of 26 heartwarming and wonderfully quirky stories about fictional characters we all seem to know. She dips into her experience as a friend and neighbor to cook up slice- of-life tales about people of all ages and walks of life. Smith's book introduces readers to an array of interesting characters - an elderly couple deeply committed to each other, newlyweds who argue about the mail, three-year-old twins who embarrass their mother, a church volunteer in a bind, and more. The stories, some sensitive, some humorous, are written to help readers see the beauty and joy in everyday experiences and appreciate the people in their lives. Homemade Humble Pie makes a great gift too. Once readers encounter these charming characters, they will want to share the stories with a friend.
