Description

"Returning to Henry Adams, Kansas, is akin to attending a family reunion. The characters are rich, and the kids all have a story to be told." --Romantic Times

"This series is a winner." --Minneapolis Examiner

Bestselling author Beverly Jenkins takes readers back to Henry Adams--a small town originally founded by freed slaves--for a delightful fourth visit with A Wish and a Prayer. Time spent in this close-knit community of lovable eccentrics is always quality time, and this trip promises to be especially memorable, with a pig on trial and new love blossoming. Loaded with heart and wit, Jenkins's A Wish and a Prayer is like coming home--a welcome return that readers of Kimberla Lawson Roby and Angela Benson and African American romance fans will certainly want to experience.

Notes

Description
"Anyone worried that life in a small town could get boring certainly hasn't lived in Henry Adams: With a pig on trial, the town's foster children still trying to find their place, and new love blossoming...there is plenty to occupy our favorite residents. Preston Miles is the only one of the original foster children with no information about his biological family, but an email from his maternal grandmother will change that. Former town mayor, Riley Curry is convinced his pet hog Cletus acted in self-defense when he sat on and killed Morton Prell, and it's Riley's plan to prove that in a court of law"--,Provided by publisher.
