Description

A "winning debut . . . Roe's story feels just right for our desperate and despairing time, when a miracle-any miracle-will do" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). The crowds keep coming. They arrive, all with their own reasons, with doubt or certainty or something in between. More and more arrive every day, drawn by rumor and whisper and desperate wish. They come to Shaker Street to see eight-year-old Anabelle Vincent, who lies in a coma-like state-unable to move or speak. They come because a visitor experienced what seemed like a miracle, and believed it happened because of Anabelle. Word spreads. There are more visitors, more supposed miracles, more stories on TV and the internet. But is this the divine at work or something else? A finalist for the Los Angeles Times Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction, "The Miracle Girl is more than an exploration of the mysteries of faith. It's also the unforgettable story of one family's struggle against tragedy. The result is an uplifting miracle of a book" (Will Allison, author of Long Drive Home). "[An] assured debut . . . Overfamiliarity has diluted the significance of the word 'miracle'-used to describe diets, cures, even sandwich spread-but Roe suggests that the miraculous is a perpetual human craving. The Miracle Girl is a hopeful meditation on the mysteries of faith." -The New York Times Book Review
