#BookReview: Bring on the Blessings - Beverly Jenkins
Henry Adams, Kansas is a small town settled by freed slaves after the Civil War and it's a community on its last leg. In desperation, the mayor puts the township up for sale on eBay. Bernadine Brown has just received $ 275 million in a divorce settlement and does what any other woman in her right mind would do, she buys a town! Bernadine's dream is to rebuild the town and create a haven for foster children needing families. While most of the town residents warm to the idea, there are a few disgruntled residents (and a pig) that will stop at nothing to discredit Bernadine and keep her dream from becoming a reality.
