Overview

Award winning author C.A. King presents Miracles Not Included, a heartfelt romantic story about: life; love; loss; and learning to love again.



If only life came with instructions and a warning label, Miracles Not Included.



*********************



Chris was born to be a writer. Even the smallest of details couldn't pass without notice, often becoming part of a plot for her next novel. The one thing she never saw coming was her husband's sudden illness.



Jason loved his wife from the moment they met. Nothing could ever change that - nothing except the death sentence he'd been handed, a terminal cancer diagnosis.



His story was ending: Hers was starting a new chapter and more than one miracle was needed to turn the page.

This book was excellent. It was well written, and thought out. I found C.A. King's writing and story to be very soothing and easy to get into. I too believe there are no coincidences in life and this story demonstrates this well. This was a true joy to read and I will be adding C.A. King to my favorite author's list. well done!

Reviewed by Lorraine Cobcroft for Readers' Favorite They met by chance in a park after Jason chased a butterfly. His mother had told him butterflies were messengers of angels, sent to give direction when something was missing from one's life. Chris was what was missing, it seems. Five years later, advertising executive Jason, and his writer wife, Chris, have what appears to be an ideal marriage and an ideal life. And then tragedy strikes. In Miracles Not Included, C.A. King explores the way we cope with - and hopefully eventually recover from - grief. Though fiction, it deals with a very real process that all of us have to endure at some point in our lives. The story is relatively short and the plot is simple, but C.A. King uses analogies, imagery and motifs in creative ways. Her philosophies come through subtly; descriptions are vivid and original; characters are believable and likeable. We relate to them. We feel their pain. The later chapters describing tragedy and grief are much more poignant because in the early part of the story everything was so perfect. Miracles Not Included does, in fact, include miracles, but the miracles are of a kind that, thankfully, most of us experience when we begin to emerge from periods of anguish. The story ends as it began, with the characters enjoying a seemingly perfect life. And yet the memory of sorrow is never erased. We heal. We learn to live with grief, but we never forget. What C.A. King leaves us with, though, is not just a satisfyingly happy ending scene. It is a delightfully original and comforting perspective on life and its challenges. In Miracles Not Included, King leads us to believe in miracles.

Reviewed by Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite C.A. King’s Miracles Not Included will have readers’ emotions extremely rattled. A tale with real and compelling characters that readers will be keen to watch as they navigate love and loss, and as they struggle to rise up from tragedy and face life again. Chris and Jason are a wonderful couple, and Chris couldn’t be happier with someone else. Her love for Jason is a stronghold and a haven where she feels inspired as a writer. The woman who can transform anything into material for a page-turner is shocked when Jason is diagnosed with terminal cancer. How could she live, knowing her husband’s days are numbered, and how does he feel, knowing that he’ll soon be leaving the woman he loves to succumb to grief? The explanation the author gives at the beginning of the book - an allegory of a child with a toy that gets abandoned because no one read the label - explains, in a nutshell, what this book is all about. At the heart of the story is the big question of all — life. What do we do with it? This is a question that Chris wouldn’t have considered seriously until the moment of tragedy. Here is a story that talks about life and love and the challenges that come with them in a way that readers can relate to. If you don’t love the plot, you’ll be seduced by the depth of C.A. King’s characters. And if the characters are hard for you to connect with, then you won’t escape the charm of the prose. Some stories entertain us and leave us with beautiful thoughts about the characters, but there are those that wake us up and compel us to reconsider the way we live: Miracles Not Included falls into the second category. It is an inspiring and deeply moving story.
