Brimming with pleasing plot twists, this heartwarming sequel to best-seller A Miracle for St. Cecilia’s demonstrates the power of prayer and the courage of compassion. Robbed by his construction partner, Barry struggles to complete a riverfront hotel and pay off menacing mobsters. But while he and dozens of other denizens of Dorsetville await God’s help, a series of events helps transform the town forever. John McDonough strikes just the right balance as he enhances Katherine Valentine’s cozy, feet-up-on-the-footstool tone with his comfortable cadence. Listeners will also enjoy Valentine’s Grace Will Lead Me Home.

To me the book is filled with disconnected characters and disjointed, jagged story lines. Connections are made unbelievable by poor story telling so that themes just don't fit together or make any sense at all. Overall harshness in tone and judgmental attitude added up to make this story a disappointment. Further, concepts of the power of prayer and the Rosary deserve a better presentation than this. The book draws too much from the Mitford series for my comfort without any of the charm. Even my favorite John McDonough couldn't save this one for me.
