Description from the publisher through Netgalley
The feel-good book of the year: a delightful novel of friendship, community, and the way small acts of kindness can change your life, by the bestselling author of The Story of Arthur Truluv
Lucille Howard is getting on in years, but she stays busy. Thanks to the inspiration of her dearly departed friend Arthur Truluv, she has begun to teach baking classes, sharing the secrets to her delicious classic Southern yellow cake, the perfect pinwheel cookies, and other sweet essentials. Her classes have become so popular that she’s hired Iris, a new resident of Mason, Missouri, as an assistant. Iris doesn’t know how to bake but she needs to keep her mind off a big decision she sorely regrets.
When a new family moves in next door and tragedy strikes, Lucille begins to look out for Lincoln, their son. Lincoln’s parents aren’t the only ones in town facing hard choices and uncertain futures. In these difficult times, the residents of Mason come together and find the true power of community—just when they need it the most.
“Elizabeth Berg’s characters jump right off the page and into your heart” said Fannie Flagg about The Story of Arthur Truluv. The same could be said about Night of Miracles, a heartwarming novel that reminds us that the people we come to love are often the ones we don’t expect.
If you read my review of The Story of Arthur Truluv, then you know that I loved that story. I was so excited to see that this was a companion novel to that beautiful story. I jumped in expecting it to continue with the story of Maddy but this story was a bit different. It took me a little bit of time to get into, but once I did, I was all in.
I love Elizabeth Berg’s writing style and her stories are so atmospheric and touching that I can’t complain about any of them. This story grabs hold of your heart and does not let it go even long after you are done reading the story.
I gave this book 4 crowns.
