Did Oscar really see the Madonna perched on his farm outhouse? Is a mortuary really the best place for a teenger to take a first date? Will a Great Lakes schooner captain sailing to his wedding survive the storm of the century – with his beloved on board? Will the young pastor of a conservative congregation win them over – and make the best of a Christmas pageant with an unexpected turn of events?

In ten finely-tuned, fun-to-read short stories, these endearingly Midwestern characters grapple with surprises and struggle to maintain their equilibrium. Maybe all they really need is “just a little lunch.”
