A tale about a family dealing with serious issues and a visit from Mrs. Miracle

A Mrs. Miracle Christmas: A Novel

By: Debbie Macomber

Rating: 5 of 5

When I think of heart-warming tales with a Christian influence or message, I always think of books written by Debbie Macomber. Her books also deal with real life scenarios and don’t gloss over the pain and suffering that part of real life.

In this story, Laurel McCullough, is dealing with both the decline of her grandmother, Helen, and has given up the dream of having children (either her own or adopted.) She is sad and her husband Zack is trying his best to support her in her time of need.

Helen is having increasing difficulty remembering things. Because of that, Laurel and Zack have moved in to help her. Even so, it is becoming increasingly obvious that Helen needs someone to help her while Laurel and Zack are at work.

Money is short due to the expense of fertility treatments that were ineffective. When Mrs. Miracle shows up to help, Laurel is thrilled.

The story is about the effect that Mrs. Miracle has on this family. Meshed into that is the story of the first Christmas and what Christianity is about.

I enjoyed reading this book. It is part of a series of Christmas books that Debbie Macomber has written. Some of those books have even been made into Hallmark movies. I will be looking forward to reading more books by this author, especially those around the Christmas season.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
