A Miracle for St. Cecilia's by Katherine Valentine

The citizens of Dorsetville are poor in worldly goods but rich in faith and compassion. For generations—long before the last wool mill closed five years ago—they have been bound together by St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church, which is set to close after mass on Easter Sunday. Father James Flaherty despairs of ever turning the parish finances around. What will become of his flock and beloved, ancient Father Keene, who had planned to live out his days at St. Cecilia’s? At the Country Kettle restaurant, waitress Lori Peterson needs her own miracle—a bone marrow match for her husband. Matthew Metcalf needs a miracle, too, now that his rash act of hacking into the high school computer has exposed embarrassing secrets. Delightful and moving, with a cast of endearing and quirky characters, A Miracle for St. Cecilia’s will warm hearts and enchant readers everywhere.

“Break forth into singing! Here is a story of faith and community and hope beyond hope.” – Lynne Hinton, author of Friendship Cake and Garden of Faith

This book puts one in mind of the Jan Karon series but this series is Catholic. I really loved the story line and found myself caught up in the characters. I am looking forward to more from Katherine Valentine!

I loved this book, and can't wait for the next book in the series. I loved every detail related to the Catholic faith, because I can relate to it, being Catholic myself. This is the first time I read 'Christian' fiction, although I'd like to call it more 'Catholic' fiction, because it's different from other Christian fiction novels. Anyway, I thought some of the 'professional' critics were a bit too harsh on this book, but that's just me. This is an uplifting story, and everyone can relate to it. Highly recommend it!

I am a college student who believes in miracles. My day sucked until I got this book from the libary. Funny quipes and solid christian advice interspersed though out. A must read!

This is such a wonderful book. I was sorry that it had to end but am glad that it is the first in a series. This book reminded me so much of The Mitford Series which I also loved. I laughed, I cried, and in between there was always a smile on my face while reading this book. This is one book that I will keep and read again, and I will recommend it to my friends to read also.

This book is outstanding. One of the best I have read this year. It's good to read that miracles really do happen when people have strong faith and let God take control. A must read.

What an uplifting, inspirational book that reaffirms all that is wonderful about living in a small New England town. I laughed, I cried but most of all I found my spirit refreshed. I can't wait to find out what happens to all those delightful characters in the next in the series.
