The James Miracle by Jason F. Wright
Sam and Holly Foster seemed to enjoy near-perfect lives. Each claimed a successful career and a legacy of goals set and achieved. Held above their possessions and accomplishments was their only child, James. He was the son they promised to raise together and the reason they came home each night. But when a series of events jolts the Fosters from their comfortable routine, it will take the miracle of their young son's toy boat and a mysterious stranger to remind them that heaven is not far and that love is never lost.
The James Miracle is an excellent book! It was perfect for a quick Sunday afternoon read. I really enjoyed the writing style, and was very touched by the story.
Wright creates relatable characters-people striving for the best in what they do, and sometimes losing focus on the most important things in life. People who have their shortcomings, but thankfully come to realize what matters most.
I loved the inclusion of the "mysterious stranger". I think we all have angels in our lives, and this Heavenly help is manifest in many ways.
This book is great from the inside out. I loved the cover design and the size of this 10th Anniversary Edition. The 5X7 hardcover is just 104 pages, and I think it would be a great gift (don't forget to include a box of tissues too).
