This big-hearted novel about small-town miracles is the entertaining follow-up to Shaffner's popular debut, In the Land of Second Chances .

Welcome to Ebb, Nebraska--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's best friend and the owner of the Bold Cut Beauty Salon, called the town "the Last Oasis of Nice."And it is.

But Ebb also has more than its share of troubles. Loretta is in a coma and her salon is burned to the ground. Wilma'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's end.

Wilma'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's at it.
