It begins with a miracle: a baby born too small and too early, but defiantly alive. This is Joe.

Decades before, another miracle. In a patch of nettle-infested wilderness, a seventeen year old boy falls in love with his best friend, Jack. This is Edward.

Joe gains a sister, Emily. From the outset, her life is framed by his. She watches him grow into a young man who plays the violin magnificently and longs for a boyfriend. A young man who is ready to begin.

Edward, after being separated from Jack, builds a life with Eleanor. They start a family and he finds himself a grandfather to Joe and Emily.

When Joe is diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, Emily and the rest of the family are left waiting for a miracle. A miracle that won't come.

Here Comes the Miracle is a profoundly beautiful story about love and loss; and about the beautiful and violent randomness of life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I adored this novel. Very lovely -- Pandora Sykes
What a gorgeous book. Lovingly told, with a poet's eye for the small miracles to be found in each passing moment. Such light and poetic prose, at times unspeakably tender. There were so many moments I found incredibly moving -- Charlie Gilmour, author of FEATHERHOOD
An exceptional novel - subtle, accomplished, and powerful. It deals unflinchingly with death but also brings life, lived and unlived, tenderly and clearly into focus. I thought it was very moving.
Anna Beecher has produced an evocation of loss and mourning that is nevertheless suffused with a sense of wonder - about the world and its objects, about different kinds of love, about the way our lives form round absences. In this quietly devastating novel, she attends, with tenderness and precision, to the details of both life and death. Here Comes the Miracle is a work of depth, sorrow, and great beauty. -- Molly McCloskey, author of WHEN LIGHT IS LIKE WATER
A lyrically-written tale of loss, fear and the miracle of love, which finds great significance in small things and quiet moments. Painful and beautiful. -- Julie Cohen, author of TOGETHER

“Good Read”

Thank you to the publishers for this early review copy.
I admit this is not a usual style of book for me, but I do like to step outside my preferred genres every now and again.
To those people who are a little more... More
