This bundle contains The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow, Charlotte Figg Takes Over Paradise, and Griselda Takes Flight.
The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow
No longer able or willing to leave her home, the unusual Agnes Sparrow has committed herself to a life of prayer
and it has resulted in numerous miracles, both large and garden variety, including a prize-winning pumpkin. The rural residents of Bright's Pond, a quirky Pennsylvania town, are so enamored with Agnes they plan to erect a sign in her honor on the interstate. Agnes wants no part of it and sends her sister to fight city hall. But when a stranger comes to call asking for his miracle, Bright's Pond is turned on its head and Agnes' feet of clay are exposed, forcing the town to its knees.
Charlotte Figg Takes Over Paradise
Newly widowed Charlotte Figg purchases a double-wide trailer sight unseen and moves to the Paradise Trailer Park with her dog, Lucky. Unfortunately, neither the trailer nor Paradise are what Charlotte expected. Her trailer is a ramshackle old place in need of major repair, and the people of Paradise are harboring more secrets than Bayer has aspirin. Charlottes new friend Rose Tattoo learns that Charlotte played softball and convinces her to rally the women of Paradise into a team. Reluctant at first, Charlotte warms to the notion and is soon coaching the Paradise Angels. Meanwhile, Charlotte discovers that the manager of Paradise, Fergus Wrinkel, abuses his wife, Suzy. Charlotte sets out to find a way to save Suzy from Fergus and in the process comes to a difficult realization about her own painful marriage.
Griselda Takes Flight
Now that her sister, Agnes Sparrow, is comfortably living at the Greenbrier Nursing Home, Griselda learns to flyliterally--after a pilot makes an emergency landing and creates quite a ruckus in the otherwise sleepy town of Brights Pond. But Griseldas newfound freedom (and her flight time with handsome pilot, Cliff) is hampered by other happenings in town. Like the gold digger who prances around town and is supposedly engaged to Stella Kincaids brother--the lottery winner who is in a coma. And theres Ivy Slocums dog, Al Capone, whose adventures continue long after they should. When Chief of Police Mildred Blessing starts investigating the gold digger, however, things really heat up--for Griselda and all the residents of the unique Pennsylvania hamlet called Brights Pond!
