Somewhere To Return By: Spencer Farmans Somewhere To Return contains nine engaging tales from the mind of Spencer M. Farmans, a lifelong Midwesterner from the city of Downers Grove, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The book fascinatingly examines people and landscapes, which span a time from innocent childhood to the reality of old age. The stories independently work as short stories yet are also an integral part of the complete novella. In “Mister Billy,” the book begins with a provocative observation of the book’s protagonist, Adam Franks, an eight-year-old little boy’s fear of a paralyzed neighbor, and how his fanciful illusions are about to dissolve into the reality of truth. “Of Fathers and Sons” addresses the terror that many people harbor about the obstacles in the wake of personal dreams (a central theme in the book) brought about by parents. The dilemma of holding to one’s dreams or selling out to the practical world of a safe survival mark the compelling lessons in “A Touch of Magic”, “A Diamond in the Ruff”, “First Love”, and the title of the book, as well as the title of the last story, “Somewhere To Return”. Also, much attention is paid to the importance of other human beings’ great influences as heroes or mentors upon the protagonist’s search for meaning and his attempt to fulfill dreams. Finally, interspersed throughout the book and accenting the stories are the graceful and beautifully colorful oil paintings of Rosalind Farmans Halikis.
