Item description for On a Wing And a Prayer (Center Point Premier Fiction (Large Print)) by Katherine Valentine...
The New England town of Dorsetville, "where miracles are never far away," faces unexpected challenges in this much-anticipated fourth volume of Katherine Valentine's beloved series.
The rumor mill is running at full speed: the Country Kettle Caf, meeting place for everyone who's anyone, may close down now that the owner's wife has struck it rich. Deputy Hill is devastated over his open-ended assignment to the graveyard shift, his just desserts for having nearly wrecked a car and a wedding in one unfortunate mishap.
Then tragedy strikes: the Gallagher twins are fighting for their lives after a fall through the ice---one on life support and the other in a coma. Doc Hammond is waging his own battle for life while helping the twins. More than ever, Dorsetville needs a miracle.

Reviews - What do customers think about On a Wing And a Prayer (Center Point Premier Fiction (Large Print))?
Urgent prayers are always answered! Nov 14, 2007
This was yet another great sequel in the Dorsetville series and I once again had trouble laying it down.
The mischievous Gallagher twins are playing ice hockey at the beginning of this story, and a horrible accident occurs when Rodney falls over into the pond which is smothered in ice. Dexter, terrified for his twin chases him and falls in too. The rescue team manages to get both boys out of the ice. Rodney only has a case of hypothermia from which he rapidly recovers, but Dexter is near death and in a serious coma.
The whole church family of St. Cecilia's and Father James gathers round with prayers, even though the doctors know that Dexter will never wake up. As time goes on, the hospital staff is asking their parents to pull the plug, and they just cannot bear it. Time will tell here what happens.
Arlene Campbell is trying to stick with her husband Fred who is becoming worse with his Alzheimer's condition. Things become more and more difficult with Fred, especially after he nearly starts a big fire and almost burns the house down. It is then that Arlene knows she must consider a nursing home.
Deputy Hill is more wreckless then ever while driving and wrecks another cruiser again. Sherriff Bromley is about to give up on him until Hill saves the governor's life in a car accident.
Wendy, the devoted waitress is having her own share of troubles. On top of everything else, she fears that her husband is having another affair.
The book is very down home and what I call a cozy read. The people in Dorsetville all have a strong faith that carries them through life and the many turns of events.
Loved it! Jul 9, 2006
I love Katherine Valentine's subject matter, her characters and her lively and humorous writing style. I read this book in one sitting, then immediately purchased the next 3 Dorsetville books, and the first book in what I hope will be another series.
The only reason I've given the book 4 stars instead of 5 is because the story is almost too idyllic. Yes, we'd all love to believe that somewhere out there a town filled with people like this exists, but for most of us, it just sounds too good to be true.
Despite that, I still loved these books and they all have a permanent place in my collection because I know I'll read them all again, and again.
Valentine delivers another hit Jan 15, 2006
Katherine Valentine is one Christian writer who can deliver an uplifting message without being preachy or sappy. Her latest installment about the folks at St. Cecilia's is no exception. I can't wait to see what she does in her new series (?) about Bend Oaks due out in June 2006!
Tales of Dorsetville continue Dec 1, 2005
I just LOVE the characters in this series and Katherine Valentine's newest installment does not disappoint. Just a few pages into the first chapter, and I'm transported back to this wonderful New England town filled with funny and heartwarming characters. I feel like I never left.
On A Wing and A Prayer begins when the Gallagher twins fall through the ice while playing hockey. Rodney is saved, but by the time the rescue team arrives to save Dudley, his prognosis is bleak. Making matters worse, Doc Hammon must entrust his patient to a stranger in order to undergo heart surgury. As always, the people in Dorsetville rally round, stocking the Gallagher's freezer to overflowing with food, and round the clock prayers. The ending was quite a surprise and one I thoroughly enjoyed.
