Overview

Jenna Newsome is praying for a miracle. When Mickey, a boy from her day care, is diagnosed with cancer, Jenna is determined to raise money for his costly treatments. But with Christmas around the corner, Mickey's time is running out and the fund is far short.

When Rem Lincoln, a former classmate of Jenna's, returns to town to visit his father, they both unexpectedly find their lives intertwined in ways they couldn't imagine. Having been hurt by love before and preoccupied with helping Mickey, Jenna becomes hesitant of her relationship with Rem. So as Christmas Eve draws near, she is surprised to discover that she's now praying for two miracles . . . one for Mickey and another for love.

This magical tale set in the hills of North Carolina will captivate fiction enthusiasts everywhere as they, too, discover that miracles sometimes come in unexpected packages.

Once upon a time, Rem Lincoln believed in God, but time has made him drift away from his faith, as well as his home town. When he returns at Christmas time, the entire town seems to be acively living out their unflagging faith, united in a joint effort to raise funds to get a very ill little boy a transplant and save his life. At the forefront of the efforts is Jenna Newsome, a rather bookish, straightlaced beauty who Rem largely ignored until now, when she catches his eye. There is most definitely an attraction between them, but Jenna's been hurt before, and Rem is not a believer. Therefore, to obey the 'do not be yoked with unbelievers' mandate, she can't pursue a relationship. Is Rem truly lost, or does he just need his own kind of transplant, the heart kind? .......................... *** This heartwarming, simple tale would be a good read any time of the year, not just Christmas. Secondary aspects of the story lighten the overall somberness of the situation. Like a Walk to Remember, (the book, not the movie), the reader is left to determine what a miracle really is, and whose life is saved. ***

In Hilltop, North Carolina, the ladies of the Hilltop Community Church are raising funds to ¿Support Mickey¿s Miracle¿. Mickey is a child suffering from Myelodysplastic syndrome and desperately needs a bone marrow transplant to live that costs money, but in spite of much of the town pitching in with cake sales and more, Christmas is coming with no hope for the youngster. Still thirty years old Jenna Newsome prays every spare moment................... Rem Lincoln is returning to his hometown to spend three horrendous holiday days with his father Roscoe. Neither will broach the subject of his dad not living anymore since his beloved spouse died. When Rem and Jenna meet over cake, they both think back to high school where she was a pious student and he was a wild basketball player using his skills to gain a scholarship. They are attracted to one another, but he counts the minutes before retuning the big city while she keeps praying for that holiday miracle................... Gary E. Parker provides his readers with a terrific inspirational tale that showcases it takes a caring village to raise a child especially when things are darkest. The story line focuses on relationships between townsfolk brought together over Mickey¿s illness, Rem and his dad, and especially he and Jenna. Always in the backdrop in cleverly subtle ways (rather than preaching in your face) are the efforts to provide Mickey with a miracle. That is what makes A MIDNIGHT MIRACLE a fabulous reading experience as the audience will wonder if Scrooge or Santa will come to town.......... Harriet Klausner
