Most Helpful Customer Reviews
An engaging and thoughtful story of a reminiscing, wounded lawyer, Ben, who is romantic and a poet at his core. With a non-linear narrative, the first half of the book gave me a feeling of melancholy. My curiosity for understanding what this "miracle" is kept me turning pages. I especially enjoyed how everything tied beautifully together at the end, which left me feeling hopeful and sanguine. To quote the author, everything in life "is just the luck of all the details falling together." This is a book that "whispers romance" and leaves you "dreaming of forever." Definitely worth a read.
