Media & Reviews
Just in from Kirkus, ". . . Brown writes it all with an invigorating pace and an enjoyably understated humor that breaks through everywhere. Jane is portrayed as an endearingly fallible and unlikely miracle worker, a retiree who slips into profanity too easily and keeps up a running argument with her dead husband. It’s Jane’s complete lack of predictable sanctimony that gives the novel its consistent charm. A wise, winning story of a modern-day miracle worker." -- Kirkus Reviews July 12, 2021

What would you do if you encountered phenomena outside your experience?

Format : Paperback
Some readers might dismiss Sister Jane as just a novel addressed to Christians who believe in faith healing and will relish the story. But the novel makes room for other sorts of readers by carefully delving into the emotions and thoughts of those who encounter phenomena outside of their experience. The joys and dangers of fame no matter how short-lived are carefully depicted as well as the narrowing dismissiveness of not wanting to venture beyond one’s grasp. Sister Jane is a novel that will entertain most while also inspiring a few to more thoroughly enjoy those around them. All readers will step into a small, beautiful town on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay to witness how diverse characters, easily likable and otherwise, experience and react to extraordinary events. Whether of high or low repute, these characters react in believable, individualistic ways. Some readers will find it fun to reflect on how they would react in such circumstances. Others will simply enjoy a good read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish! I was hooked early on by Jane and by the unusual premise. Then the other characters (all very well developed) entered into the story, and things became even more intriguing. I couldn't imagine how the author would wrap up this book. I was a little worried that the ending might disappoint, but I thought it was great! I highly recommend Sister Jane!
A Fun Quick Read!
