My Review: "Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café," by Max Lucado ~ Plus an iPad Mini Giveaway!

About the book:
What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would he answer?

Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Café, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, expert planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet, a miracle.

Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea's door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They've come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life's biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask, and heaven answers in a most unexpected way.

My thoughts:
One of my favorite movies is It's a Wonderful Life, and this book is similar in that an angel is sent to earth to provide guidance to a family in crisis. It's a quick and fun read with a small-town feel that will have you believing in second chances and never giving up hope. As a former single mother, I enjoyed watching Chelsea's journey to independence and self-confidence. Life was overwhelming at times, but the journey was worth the lessons learned. And during a time when Chelsea felt nobody cared, she saw the signs that God was with her all along. It is a comforting thought for all of us.
