Publisher's Summary

It begins with a miracle: a baby born too small and too early but defiantly alive. This is Joe. 

Decades before, another miracle. In a patch of nettle-infested wilderness, a 17-year-old boy falls in love with his best friend, Jack. This is Edward.

Joe gains a sister, Emily. From the outset, her life is framed by his. She watches him grow into a young man who plays the violin magnificently and longs for a boyfriend. A young man who is ready to begin. 

Edward, after being separated from Jack, builds a life with Eleanor. They start a family, and he finds himself a grandfather to Joe and Emily. 

When Joe is diagnosed with stage-four cancer, Emily and the rest of the family are left waiting for a miracle. A miracle that won't come.

Here Comes the Miracle is a profoundly beautiful story about love and loss; and about the beautiful and violent randomness of life.

Beautiful, profound novel, wonderfully read

Here comes the Miracle is a beautifully and lyrically written novel. Deep, profound and moving.

Narration is brilliant too and wonderful to listen to.

I thoroughly recommend

Just beautiful

What a beautifully written book, every sentence is so carefully laid out.
The story of a tragic diagnosis and failed miracle could have been saccharine and maudlin, yet whist sad Joe's dying and death were handled with such care and love.
The interveaving of the extended families story gave a breadth and added so many dimensions and layers.
Definitely a book that will resonate.

The narration was just perfect too.
