Antoinette's gift, though, puts her own life in danger, as each healing comes with an increasingly deadly price. As Rose - the centre of her daughter's life struggles with her own failing health, and Lily confronts her anguished past, they, and the men who love them, come to real size the sacrifices that must be made to keep this very special child safe. Written with great heart and a deep understanding of what it feels like to be "different," The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin is a novel about what it means to be family, and about the lengths to which people will go to protect the ones they love.

"A haunting and beautiful story."
--The Oklahoman

"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."
