It hasn't rained in a hundred days, it's hotter than Beelzebub's oven, and the ground is harder than a castiron skillet. The good folks of Ebb, Nebraska, could surely use a miracle. Lifelong residents are fleeing, and the town is on the verge of collapse. Wilma Porter, the plucky owner of the Come Again Bed and Breakfast, and her indomitable friends from the Quilting Circle need to do something to save Ebb, and fast. But short of praying for rain, there's little even the powerful Quilting Circle can do.

Enter Vernon L. Moore. The last time this mysterious traveling salesman came to stay at the Come Again B & B, he turned the town around in six days. When he left, he became a legend. Wilma and her friends have come to expect surprises from Mr. Moore, but this time they're stunned when he brings help: three widows from the town of Eden with pasts as enigmatic as his.

The Widows of Eden is an entertaining, inspiring novel about community, hope, and a new way of looking at the things that matter most.

From the Inside Flap:

It’s summer in dusty middle America, and the residents of Ebb, Nebraska, are enduring the worst drought since the Dust Bowl. It hasn’t rained in a hundred days, and the ground is harder than a cast-iron skillet. Lifelong residents are fleeing. Wilma Porter—the plucky owner of the Come Again Bed and Breakfast—and her indomitable friends from the Quilting Circle need to do something to save the town, and fast. But short of praying for rain, there’s little even the powerful Quilting Circle can do.
Enter Vernon L. Moore. The last time this mysterious traveling salesman came to stay at the Come Again Bed and Breakfast, he turned the town around in six days. When he left, he became a legend. Wilma and the good folks of Ebb have come to expect surprises from Mr. Moore, only this time they’re strunned when he brings some help: three widows from the town of Eden, Arizona, with pasts as enigmatic as his. And it seems Mr. Moore’s not back just to save the town. He’s returned to make a deal with Clement Tucker, the richest man in Ebb, who is prepared to buy Vernon Moore’s influence at the expense of the town’s survival.
The Widows of Eden is at once an entertaining story about small-town life—full of down-home charm and warmhearted characters—and a wise parable about hope and faith.
