showThe Show Must Go On

A mixture of history and entertaining tales, telling of rural life and the entrepreneurial spirit of the author's parents, Howard and Hazel Gunter, of Coe Hill, Ontario. If you lived in the 1920 to 1970 era, you will identify with so many of the experiences. If you are younger, you will appreciate the timeless humour, moral struggles and human foibles. This is a little treasure chest of a Canadian family's history, as well as stories of the author's early years.

heartsDear Hearts and Gentle People

A collection of 55 tales about family members and friends, the "Dear Hearts and Gentle People" who have been part of Heather's life. Readers will identify with some of the experiences, but may react with disbelief as they read about some unusual, albeit true, experiences. The hospital delivery room, bizarre wedding happenings, funeral problems, near catastrophes, and even a taste of Australia, are just some topics encountered in this book of short stories. Truth is definitely stranger than fiction! You'll chuckle, you'll empathize, maybe sometimes even sympathize! These are good Canadian-flavour stories with universal appeal, another treasure chest of the best!

askedBecause You Asked

Open this 210 page book anywhere You will identify with so many of the experiences in this, Heather's third book. Like in her 2 previous collections of true happenings, these stories are designed to cause you to reminisce, chuckle, and maybe read aloud to others. If you enjoyed the author's first two books, you may recognize some of the people involved; however, each account is complete by itself, without worry of chronological order or whether or not you have met the characters. Open the book anywhere and savour as many stories as time allows. In addition to humorous tales, this volume offers one chapter of insightful tales, reflections based on the past six decades.

The reason for the title: Heather's readers kept asking for more stories… another book please, I've read the others twice!
The cover scene is at Whiteduck Lake, West of Combermere, ON

sunnySunny Side Up
