Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café, by Max Lucado, combines the power of prayer from The War Room with the spiritual warfare of a Frank Peritti novel. The result is a sweet tale of love, redemption and forgiveness.
Recently separated from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea Chambers inherits her mother’s cafe and the problems that come with it. Chelsea must learn to navigate motherhood and life with these new challenges. However, forgiveness is not on her list of hurdles to overcome – especially when it comes to her cheating husband.
I have read many of Lucado’s non-fiction and children’s fiction books. In my opinion, Lucado is a superb writer. He has the ability to weave hope and beauty into every letter on the page. Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café is classic Max Lucado storytelling, and is sensitive and touching in its delivery. Dynamic characters, a sweet storyline, and hope-filled messages grace every page of this book. While not a deep read, it does teach us the power of prayer and forgiveness. If you are looking for a quick and sweet book to curl up on the couch with, then this book will not disappoint. I give this romantic tale of forgiveness a five-star rating for the storytelling, characters, and message.
