From back cover --

Hearts are softened as storytelling strengthens an unspoken bond between eight-year-old Michael and his friend on the porch. The man helps the young boy build memories that make him proud when he has a son of his own. In return, the friend finds happiness as he learns to dream through the eyes of others. The bond between the man and the young boy is a story about making a difference - the story of A Friend on the Porch.

About the Author --

She will one day split her time between the mountains of Colorado and her favorite beach in southern California to continue writing stories about the many places that live in her heart. A Friend on the Porch was inspired by a young boy who chose to embrace his humble beginnings and continues to build memories that make him proud. Kelley can be contacted at www.kelleymerritt.com

Her award-winning paintings and drawings are in many private collections and have been exhibited at The Society of Illustrators and The Philadelphia Sketch Club as well as numerous art galleries and exhibitions in the New York and Philadelphia area.
