Publisher Comments:

This big-hearted novel about small-town miracles is the entertaining follow-up to Shaffner&#8217; s popular debut, "In the Land of Second Chances. <BR> Welcome to Ebb, Nebraska&#8212; home of the Corn Palace, the Quilting Circle, the Come Again Bed and Breakfast, and Wilma Porter and her indomitable gang of friends. Loretta Parsons, Wilma&#8217; s best friend and the owner of the Bold Cut Beauty Salon, called the town &#8220; the Last Oasis of Nice.&#8221; And it is. <BR> But Ebb also has more than its share of troubles. Loretta is in a coma and her salon is burned to the ground. Wilma&#8217; s grandson, Matt, is in the county jail awaiting sentencing for arson and attempted murder. Clem Tucker, the richest man in town, is cooking up a business deal that could have dire consequences for everyone. Even the powerful Quilting Circle, which includes almost every woman in Ebb, is at its wit&#8217; s end. <BR> Wilma&#8217; s prayers for help are answered when the mysterious traveling salesman Mr.Vernon Moore returns to save the day . . . and a life or two while he&#8217; s at it.

Synopsis:

The residents of Ebb, Nebraska, could use another miracle. The last time they needed one, their salvation came in the form of a mysterious, well-dressed traveling salesman named Vernon Moore. Though he turned the town around in six days, now Ebb is right back in the soup, and plucky Wilma Porter-owner of the Come Again Bed and Breakfast-is praying for a return visit from the famous Mr. Moore.

Wilmas prayers are answered, but not everyone is happy to see Vernon again. Clem Tucker, the richest man in town, is cooking up a business deal that could have dire consequences for Ebb-and he doesnt like Vernons meddling. Nor does the recently arrived Reverend Gault, whose Divine Temple of the Everlasting God Almighty may have something to do with the towns current troubles. Vernon aims to set them straight, even if it means putting himself and others in danger. But its Loretta Parson who needs his strange brand of magic the most-and in the end, Vernon just might need her even more . . . if hes going to save the little town of Ebb.
