"Quirk abounds in this tale of two sisters, Agnes and Griselda Sparrow. When what seems to be miracles - healings from serious illnesses - the residents ofthe small Pennsylvania town of Bright's Pond naturally attribute them to Agnes. Agnes' putative power attracts a stranger in need of an unstatedmiracle, andthe plot thickens from there. To pull off such a quirky novel, the characters need to be vividly etched, the writing consistently clever and the plotting persuasive on its ownterns." --Publishers Weekly

The Prayers of Agnes SparrowMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
A very original plot to this story! I was intrigued from the start. Agnes is a very large lady, and I mean very large. As she is now housebound because of her size, she is looked after by her devoted sister the local librarian. Agnes has become known in the neighbourhood for her prayer ministry which has had many wonderful responses from God. She is at pains to stress that the glory is all God’s, but inevitably the town holds her up as a miracle worker. As the story unfolds the dangers of this become obvious, but there are other unsuspected dangers as well. A glorious collection of characters people this story and I enjoyed every moment of my reading. When I found that there were discussion questions at the back, I had no difficulty remembering plenty of issues that would cause lively debate.
