    "Would that it were possible!"
    Any additional comments?

    I feel very mixed about this book. On one level the characters just didn't feel real or well developed in a believable way. The story line was filled with quick fixes and pat answers to all the troubles in the small VERY closely knit community in the story. The people were quirky-- in helpful but not always kind ways. On the other hand I was drawn in and wanted to see how the book ended. To me, in the end, it was just a string of meddlesome and often edgy interaction. With a strong dash of judgmental--I know what is best for everyone kind of tone. In life I think it would be surprising to find such an involved and connected community. I'm not sure it would be a place that I would like to be part of-- if it was probable or even possible.

    Story
    "I would love to visit this town !"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek to be better than the print version?

    I love audio books because the characters come to life and feel like real friends. I don't have much luck when reading because it makes me sleepy so I listen to books when I go for my daily walk and when I'm in my car.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek?

    I really enjoyed the part where the kids first meet Sam, the soldier who lost a leg in the war. He was so good with them even though he was suffering.


    What does Chris Sorensen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Chris made me feel as if I was right there in the room the whole time in every situation.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    New Young Minister Welcomed to Small Town Community


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read more about this town. I miss all of the characters when I complete a book.
