The blond haired cartoonist lends the book her name. She is eternally hopeful and her cheerful manner is always quietly expressed. Sam is her best friend, quick to grumble in disbelief of the world around her, a definite Johnny Raincloud who hides an incredibly sweet heart. And there's Hank, the would-be musician who claims to have never heard the Blues. The other "character" in the book is the setting where these friends live and breathe-Columbus, Ohio. The locations don't intrude or overshadow the story but add to the over all texture. The nine stories contained herein offer a brief glimpse into what has happened in these characters' lives "So Far."
