Summary

Summary

The love between a mother and her child is a living miracle, a feeling so strong that it can transcend time and triumph over tragedy. In this inspiring new book by the authors of Christmas Miracles and The Magic of Christmas Miracles, you will find remarkable true stories that show just how enduring a mother's love can be. Some of the miracles a mother makes possess quiet beauty: her selfless work behind the scenes to make a child's dream come true. Some are dramatic: a powerful intuition that calls her to action to save her child. Some seem to cross the boundaries of time, space, and even the grave. All, in this celebration of the mother/child bond, are wondrous. Among them:

7 "Another Sleepless Night": A mother's desperate prayer coincides with her son's narrow escape from death, thousands of miles away.

7 "The Day I Was Touched by Snowflakes": A harried young mother finds peace and patience in an unlikely place.

7 "Her Only Secret": A daughter discovers her immigrant mother's simple but powerful secret gift of love.

7 "Prayers for Elijah": Even the Internet is a place for miracles.

7 "The Victory": A troubled teenager's life is transformed by an unusual dream.

7 "Cori's Beads": Years after her daughter dies in a car accident, a bereaved mother literally stumbles on a sign of hope and healing.

Mothers' Miracles is filled with these and other astonishing true stories of maternal devotion that will echo in the hearts, minds, and souls of readers everywhere.
