Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe

Lucado, Max. With Lee, Candace and Newman, Eric. Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe: A Heavenly Novel. Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson. 2015.

cafeCommitted to remodeling and redesigning the Higher Grounds Cafe, Chelsea Chambers doesn’t have the time nor energy when her NFL superstar husband decides to leave. Taking care of two children, reopening the Cafe, struggling with bills, and staying out of the public spotlight all require some divine intervention. Through a series of puzzling events, cupcakes, cappuccinos and strong coffee may actually be connected in some divine way…

Being a fan of Max Lucado’s non-fiction writing, I was anxious to try his fiction novel as well. Filled with compassion, humor, faith and a bit of heavenly help, I finished this shorter story quickly although the message has me continuing to speculate. (Perhaps a God Blog would be something He should consider…LOL.) Sweet yet strong, I enjoyed this piece of fiction. This book might be good for Book Club or Bible Study, especially with the discussion questions included at the end. If you could ask God one question…what would it be?

4.5 (out of 5) pennies
