"Overall, Stephanie Kipper has written a stunning and lyrical debut worthy of a read - complete with complex relationships, deep meaning and, above all, loves that conquer all."
"Stephanie Knipper's rich prose moves us through Rose, Lilly, and Rose's daughter, Antoinette's points of view to weave this beautiful portrait of a family as they grow through life's difficult moments."
"A haunting and beautiful story."
"Full of wonder, told gently and with great respect... What's beautiful about the book is the deep love between mother and child, sister and sister, man and woman. There's a sense of abiding hope amidst sorrow, of life and light, underscored by the flowers, always the flowers... The novel is about how all those sounds, the hum of the plants and the people, the words spoken and unspoken, the infinite power of touch, makes us human and divine. It shows that love itself is the miracle."
"This charming debut will appeal to those seeking elements of magic realism, family relationships, and personal growth, as well as Sarah Addison Allen fans."
"The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin is a lovely story of family and love, with a few miracles mixed in."
