Here Comes the Miracle

£14.99

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 seventeen 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 4 cancer, Emily and the rest of the family are left waiting for a miracle. A miracle that won’t come.

Description

I adored this novel. Very lovely’ Pandora Sykes

What a gorgeous book. Lovingly told, with a poet’s eye for the small miracles to be found in each passing moment. Such light and poetic prose, at times unspeakably tender. There were so many moments I found incredibly moving’ Charlie Gilmour, author of FEATHERHOOD

‘A powerful, sensual and deeply moving novel about loss and love, and how to contain them both within a life. It’s a stunning novel I read in two evenings’ Clover Stroud, author of MY WILD AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
