How are values learned? Most are handed down by parents and grandparents. In Return to Farrellville, a young man, Sean, reflects on his granddad's lessons that showed him that even the smallest of actions can have significant results. G. E. Brock deftly weaves a tale of a town held together by people who don't comprehend their own worth. Harlan and Robert, brothers torn by resentment, question their mother's love as favoritism. Sarah, scarred by a tragic accident, isolates herself to avoid rejection. Ray, haunted by one key choice, cannot forgive himself. And Daniel, shunned for his differences, unites the town with his unhesitating compassion and courage.
Return to Farrellville with Sean, meet the townspeople, and learn the exceptional difference one person can make.
