As in his first ‘Sunset Musings’, each vignette is a story in itself and following his ‘Spring’ of life collection, he has now entered into the ‘Summer Years’.

Each short story has a taste of humour, a taste of life’s lessons and a taste of what it means to be human.

In the forward, his friend and neighbour, D’Arcy Farlow, succinctly describes the author’s unique style of writing.  “His observations and discussions are thought-provoking, discerning, multi-faceted, and often deliciously funny.  What better way to spend an afternoon than reading these essays … in his writings, Bob tackles a subject and examines it from various angles with quiet brilliance and wit.  I once referred to him as the Stephen Leacock of Saugeen Shores …”

The author, in his personal introduction of ‘More Sunset Musings: The Summer Years’, explains …

“I have reminisced about many of my humorous and sometimes serious experiences of summers past – a nostalgic trip we will take together down that proverbial “Memory Lane”.  On a deeper level, I reflect upon the past “summer” decades of my life; a time of maturation, marriage, parenting, vocation and spiritual awareness …”

Johnston is already currently working on the third book of his trilogy.
