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

Then, two years later, Emily, arrives. From the beginning, the siblings’ lives are entwined.
Snake back through time. In a patch of nettle-infested wilderness, find Edward, seventeen-years-old, and falling in love with another boy.

In comes somebody else, Eleanor, with whom Edward starts a family. They find themselves grandparents to Joe and Emily.

When Joe is diagnosed with cancer, the family are left waiting for a miracle.

From one of our finest new authors, this is a profoundly beautiful novel about the unexpectedness of life and the miracle of love.


Powerful, sensual, deeply moving ... A stunning novel I read in two evenings
Clover Stroud, author of THE WILD OTHER
a bittersweet story of love and loss across the years
Waitrose Weekend
Anna Beecher has produced an evocation of loss and mourning that is nevertheless suffused with a sense of wonder - about the world and its objects, about different kinds of love, about the way our lives form round absences. In this quietly devastating novel, she attends, with tenderness and precision, to the details of both life and death. Here Comes the Miracle is a work of depth, sorrow, and great beauty.
Molly McCloskey, author of WHEN LIGHT IS LIKE WATER
I adored this novel. Very lovely
Pandora Sykes
A lyrically-written tale of loss, fear and the miracle of love, which finds great significance in small things and quiet moments. Painful and beautiful.
Julie Cohen, author of TOGETHER
An exceptional novel - subtle, accomplished, and powerful. It deals unflinchingly with death but also brings life, lived and unlived, tenderly and clearly into focus.
Anjali Joseph, author of SARASWATI PARK
Here Comes the Miracle may be a story about loss but it is also a testimony to life, survival and the revitalising powers of memory
The Irish Times
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
