After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask God a question of her own. Heaven answers in a most unexpected way."
Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe is the first book by Max Lucado that I have read. It is also the first "angel" book that I've read. I'll be honest, when I first realized that there was an angel in the story I was a bit skeptical. However, the more I read the more I enjoyed it.
The plot was pretty good and, as a matter of fact, it actually felt like I was reading a Hallmark movie...if that makes any sense. Some little things in the storyline seemed kind of obvious to me, like I wasn't surprised by several things in the book. But, even with the somewhat expected plot, I really did enjoy this book.
It was a very inspiring book. Not at all preachy, just nice and uplifting. I can already think of several people who would love to read this book. I'll be recommending it for sure!
