THE PRAYERS OF AGNES SPARROW
by Joyce Magnin

Genre: Inspirational, Contemporary Romance

RT Rating

The power of prayer is strong, and sometimes they are answered. Not all of them are, though, for reasons no one can understand. Magnin has captured the essence of why people believe in praying. Her characters are forthright, intelligent and sometimes witty, and readers will not soon forget this book.

Agnes Sparrow does not want the townspeople of Bright's Pond to create a sign to honor her and place it on the interstate. She doesn't feel she's anyone special; she just prays for people because she feels that's what God called her to do. She also feels that is all she can do, since she's extremely heavy and never leaves her house anymore.

Griselda, Agnes' sister, understands why Agnes does not want the sign,
and she tries to convince the people to change their minds, but they ignore her pleas. When a stranger comes to town and death follows, questions are raised as to why Agnes' prayers could not stop the tragedies. (ABINGDON, Sep., 398
