Waiting for the Evening News free pdf A petty thief is bested by a widow and her card-playing friends- a farmer must cope with raising his baby granddaughter- a train engineer inadvertently causes a major disaster and finds himself amidst a media frenzy- a young man falls in love with a voice on the radio- and a camera repairman discovers a woman's family history in a roll of undeveloped film. Ordinary people are confronted with extraordinary situations, with results that are sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, but always life changing.
