The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow

Full Product Description

The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow is the story of an unusual woman, Agnes Sparrow. No longer able or willing to leave her home, where she is cared for by her long-suffering sister Griselda, Agnes has committed her life to the one thing she can do — besides eat. Agnes Sparrow prays and when Agnes prays things happen, including major miracles of the cancer, ulcer-healing variety along with various minor miracles not the least of which is the recovery of lost objects and a prize-winning pumpkin.

But when a stranger comes to call asking for his miracle, this tiny rural town is turned on its head and Agnes's feet of clay are exposed, forcing the whole town to it knees.

Joyce Magnin is the author of short fiction and personal experience articles. She co-authored the book, Linked to Someone in Pain. She has been published in such magazines as Relief Journal, Parents Express, Sunday Digest, and Highlights for Children. Joyce attended Bryn Mawr College and is a member of the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Fellowship. She is a frequent workshop leader at various writer’s conferences and women’s church groups.

"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
