Publishers Description
A collection of amazing and touching stories that celebrates women and shows that miracles are still possible.

From Publishers Weekly
This book is indeed for women, if by women one means white, American, middle-class, conservative Christian mothers. But there's little reason to quibble; such women are exactly Kingsbury's target audience, and few of them will be disappointed by these stories of angels, medical miracles and mothers who really, really love their kids (the only exception being a "childless by choice" woman who really, really loves her house). While Kingsbury claims that these stories are true (there's no documentation or opportunity to corroborate this), she has clearly taken liberties with the dialogue; the conversations between doctors and anguished parents are straight out of 1960s-era medical dramas. The majority of the stories fit a pretty old chestnut of a formula: tragedy happens, the doctor says there's no hope, God intervenes (often in the form of an angel), the patient miraculously gets better, then the doctor shakes his head in disbelief, says that the recovery is inexplicable and admits that he was wrong. In more than one case, the wrong medical advice is, not surprisingly, to abort a gravely ill fetus. Two later chapters are a bit more compelling in that the sick person indeed dies, and the miracle is the good that comes from that death. There's little doubt that Kingsbury's subjects had astonishing experiences, but the nuance, texture and reality of those experiences are lost in the simplistic telling. Luis Palau's It's a God Thing packs the emotional punch Kingsbury is going for, but with considerably less treacle. (Apr. 4) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Great Gift for Women  Jun 27, 2003
This book makes a great gift for women. I bought it for a friend, and she has enjoyed it. I definately would reccomend it for anyone looking for that special gift to lift the heart and spirit of a lady friend, or your mother, sister, etc...
 
As great as the first!  Dec 26, 2002
***** Once again, Ms. Kingsbury does what she does best, move our hearts with stories that bring a smile to your face while you wipe tears from your eyes. Throughout this small collection of true stories, time and again, you are inspired with true accounts of people whose faith has sustained them and who encounter what can only be termed miraculous. Most often, the simple faith of a child is what stands out as the key ingredient. However, people of all ages experience these miracles, and once you read about them, you will begin to look for the same in your own life. *****
