I am a fan of Jason Wright and our book club has read all of his books except this first one. A couple of years ago I picked it up in the
'bargain' aisle because he was the author. I got half way through and the pages turned blank - then picked up again in the last 2 chapters;
so I never read the middle. Having had the opportunity now to read the whole story, I understand the Miracle. It will be truly felt by any
family that has lost a loved one and a must read - for anyone.
On December 24, 2003, Jason F. Wright went to a copy shop and had them print and bind ONE copy of The James Miracle manuscript.
He had been secretly writing before work, during lunch, and when his small family slept.
He wrapped this precious gift for his wife as a Christmas present.
This is what Jason wrote about Christmas morning:
"The next morning, after our two little girls had opened their presents, I handed the package to my wife and nervously watched her open it. Her eyes went wide at the dedication and title page. 'You wrote this?' she asked, flipping through the pages. 'All of it?'
I laughed and assured her it was an original work. Then I explained that the book wasn't really the gift--it was the message."
The book was cherished and shown to a few close friends.
With their encouragement James had the book published..."and, against all odds, his writing career was born."
NOW 10 YEARS LATER
We get to once again read the wonderful story of a family who are going different directions because of different demands...
Until one fateful accident rocked them to the bottom of their world...
A stranger and a string of events will show them what really matters in this life.
"The James Miracle isn't just a novel - it's a message."
I absolutely LOVED this book!
