A WISH AND A PRAYER is book four in the Blessings series by novelist extraordinaire Beverly Jenkins. As with all of the Blessings books, it picks up where the prior book left off. Bernadine, armed with her billionaire checkbook and her crack staff, continues to build up the town of Henry Adams. Jack waits patiently for Rocky to give him a chance while Jack's son Eli hopes for the same with Crystal, who seems to be interested in bag boy Diego July. Preston's relationship with his foster parents, Colonel and Sheila Payne, is up and down, mostly up, but he has a chance to find his biological family.
And of course, before it's all over, somebody's whitewashing Ms. Jefferson's fence.
