Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Ebb, Nebraska, things are pretty much as they were fifty years ago-aside from that coffee shop-and thats just the way folks like it. Plucky Wilma Porter is the proprietress of Ebbs only Bed and Breakfast, and she knows everything there is to know in town: the mental state of Clara Tucker Booth Yune, a rich recluse who says only two words at a time; the gossip at Loretta Parsons Bold Cut Beauty Salon; and the sad series of events that have led poor Calvin Millet to the edge of desperation. Calvin is the owner of Millets Department Store, a village mainstay for generations, but many fear that it-and the downtown-wont survive his terrible run of bad luck.

Wilma prays for a miracle to save Ebbs special way of life, but shes surprised when it arrives in the form of a traveling salesman, if thats what he is. Vernon L. Moore claims to peddle games of chance, but he sticks his nose in odd places and says things like, “uncertainty is the spice of life.” He is welcomed nonetheless, because he seems to have the power to change minds, save fortunes, and fix broken hearts.

Synopsis:

The folks of Ebb, Nebraska, are revitalized when a handsome stranger comes to town selling games of chance. Wherever he is from and whoever he is, he leaves behind a town where second chances not only happen--they transform.
