The(ir) Blurb...

Adult Tom Dixon is remembering back to a time when he was ten years old living on a farm with his parents outside of Poplar Bluffs, Saskatchewan. Behind in his work, Tom's father needed to cut the wheat stalks on a Sunday - a disgrace to Tom's God fearing mother who believed Sunday is the Lord's day - meaning that Tom needed to go alone into town, fifteen miles away, to hire someone to stook the cut wheat stalks. Instead of hiring someone who knew farm work, Tom hired a young urban looking man named Phillip. Tom became enthralled with Phillip when he learned that Phillip was a professional cornet player, Tom who had an interest in music. Conversely, Tom's parents were appalled at Tom's choice. After hearing Phillip play, Tom knew he made the right choice and decided to do whatever he could to help Phillip so that his father wouldn't send Phillip away. But Phillip ended up having a profound effect on the entire family, which had nothing to do with the farm work.
