Wow! This is such fun. Thank you Library Journal
This unusual first novel introduces two quirky sisters who live in their family's funeral home in the town of Bright's Pond, PA. Griselda Sparrow is protective of the overweight (as in 600 pounds) and often-taunted Agnes. One day, however, Agnes decides to confine herself to their home and devote herself to praying for the townspeople. When her prayers start to produce miracles, the town takes notice—a development that only complicates the sisters' lives. VERDICT This delightfully eccentric tale, with its colorful characters who pull at the heartstrings, will stay with readers long after they finish it.
