Overview

Megan Wright spent one unforgettable summer week with a boy when they were both teens. And despite a lifetime of heartache and bad choices, she has never let go of his magical definition of love, even if she has trouble believing in it. After college Megan settled for a relationship of convenience. Now she's a high powered attorney and, after the death of her husband two years ago, has been looking for help with her lonely young son.

Across town, Casey Cummins is still dealing with the tragic loss of his wife. His search for meaning and hope leads him to contact the Manhattan Children's Organization, who connects him with a fatherless child. Life suddenly takes a series of unusual twists, and soon Megan will learn that the teenage boy from all those years ago actually kept his promise, and the miracle she prayed for as a girl is only a breath away.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kingsbury, whose novella Gideon's Gift struck a fervent chord with readers last year, offers this second story in the "Red Gloves Series": as one character declares to another, "Red is the color of giving." The plot is eerily similar to Gideon's Gift, complete with a lonely widower whose life is turned around by a remarkably sweet and mature eight-year-old child. (The child is a boy this time, however, and his mom is a lonely widow. See what's coming?) Although the formula could not be more predictable, the melodrama is largely overdone and the ending requires a huge suspension of disbelief, readers will find themselves caring deeply about the winsome characters. Kingsbury's note to readers at the end of the book includes several suggestions for "Red Gloves" service projects to aid children. (Oct. 14) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
In a letter to God, eight-year-old Jordan Wright asks for a new daddy, believing that his prayer will be answered. (His real father died suddenly two years ago.) After reading the letter, Jordan's mother, Megan, a high-powered Manhattan attorney, determines to help her grieving son even though she never loved his father. She contacts an organization that pairs adults with children who have lost parents, and recent widower Casey Cummins enters the picture. A Christmas setting and the uplifting message that prayers are eventually answered make this second entry in the "Red Glove" series (after Gideon's Gift) an ideal stocking stuffer. Its appeal may extend to fans of Nicholas Sparks; for most public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    A Beautifully Written Story

    Ms. Kingsbury has crafted a beautiful story of hope and the miracle of love. Her characters are so achingly real that I identified with each one of them, and the scenes contained just enough description to place me firmly inside the story, but not so much that I skimmed through a single sentence. Though Casey's identity was predictable early on, it was explained believably. This is the first of Ms. Kingsbury's books I have read, and now I intend to read others.

    A Refreshing Change

    My sister in law just sent this book to me for Christmas and I was pleasantly surprised! How refreshing to have a well-written novel completely void of gratutious love scenes, violence, and anti-Christianity we so often find in today's book market. Maggie and Casey give hope to those who have none and little Jordan's character reminded me of my need to be a more attentive and compassionate mother. A good read!

    For those of you that have ever loved so much at one time but ha

    For those of you that have ever loved so much at one time but had to watch that time in your life slip by, there is hope that you will one day find it again. Best-selling author Karen Kingsbury takes readers into the hearts of Maggie and Jordan Wright who are finding themselves trying to find a way to get through the death of her husband and Jordan's father due to a sudden heart attack. Jordan is dealing with it much harder as an eight-year-old boy who was loved dearly by his father, but the love Maggie shared with him was simply a business transaction in the marriage. She only had that perfect love once in her life as a young girl searching for answers and finding it on the shores of a lake one summer.

    Maggie has since resolved to give up on love forever and find a way to move forward in her life as a busy district attorney. But she can see that Jordan needs more time than she can find to give him. His grades are suffering and he has now taken his problems directly to God in a letter. Knowing his mother always has the right answers, Jordan believes that his special prayer for a new daddy must be written out and mailed by his mother. He knows beyond a doubt that God will hear him and answer his prayers.

    Casey Cummins understands that level of grief that Maggie and Jordan are feeling. He too, lost his wife Amy and his unborn son due to delivery complications. He knew that he would never find a love like that again, but there is still an empty place in his heart for helping others. He learns about Healing Hearts, a program that places grieving children with single adults as a way of helping them through their struggles and that feels like the perfect answer for managing his own grief. Now he prays that God will provide him with just the right child for him and hopes he won't have to wait too long.

    I received Maggie's Miracle by Karen Kingsbury compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions here are strictly my own. This is the second book in the Red Glove Series and is bound to ignite a spirit of love and hope in your heart this Christmas season. It is about believing not only in miracles but the power of prayer to restore those broken places in our hearts and find hope once again. There is also a list of activities to inspire you to incorporate them into your Christmas season and give back some hope and love to those that are hurting. I love the idea of reading this book a chapter a day starting at Thanksgiving as a way of encouraging and inspiring us all to be better people. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars. While these are part of a series, they can be read as a stand alone and in any order.
