The small New England town of Dorsetville is filled with quirky, loveable characters much like those who populated Andy Griffiths Mayberry. Dorsetville is all aflutter. The housekeeper at St. Cecilias rectory, Mrs. Norris, has quit in a huff, and the rectory is beginning to look like a college dorm. Father Dennis could lend a hand, but since his cooking show, The Fat Friar, has gained popularity, hes become, well, moody. Nellie Anderson and Harry Clifford are about to tie the knotthat is if someone can find the missing wedding invitations. Bungling Deputy Hill has been left in charge since the sheriff is sick, but will the town survive in the meantime? Meanwhile, Father James is helping an ex-convict learn to resume his life. Valerie Kilbourne, a single mother, needs money for a very expensive operation for her twin daughters. And Lori Peterson, who has had her share of tragedies, will be asked to face another. Katherine Valentines keen insights into human nature and extraordinary sense of humor make for characters youll want to know for years.From the Trade Paperback edition.
