An exceptional novel - subtle, accomplished, and powerful. It deals unflinchingly with death but also brings life, lived and unlived, tenderly and clearly into focus.
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.
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.
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
Powerful, sensual, deeply moving ... A stunning novel I read in two evenings
I adored this novel. Very lovely
