    Excerpts-
    • From the cover Laurel McCullough arrived home to find two police cruisers parked in the driveway with their lights flashing. If that wasn't enough to get her heart racing, it was seeing her grandmother on the front porch, clearly distressed, wringing her hands and looking around anxiously.

      Laurel slammed her vehicle into park and leaped out of her car, nearly stumbling in her eagerness to find out what had happened.

      "Nana," she cried, rushing toward her grandmother.

      The instant Laurel came into view, Helen covered her mouth with her hands, and her eyes, filled with dread, looked to the ground.

      "Laurel, oh dear, oh dear," she said, her shoulders slumping. "I'm sorry. I've made a terrible mistake."

      Laurel wrapped her arms around her grandmother, hoping to comfort her.

      "Officer, what's going on here?" "Are you Laurel Lane? This is your grandmother?"

      "Yes, but McCullough is my married name."

      "I'm so sorry," Helen repeated, worry lines creasing her face. "When I woke from my nap, my mind was fuzzy. I was afraid because you weren't home from school, so I called the police."

      "Your grandmother reported that her ten-year-old granddaughter hadn't returned from school," the kind officer explained to Laurel.

      Laurel swallowed down her shock. Nana had been mentally slipping for a while now—little things she couldn't remember, small details—and this was the second major incident within a short time period.

      "As you can see, I'm a bit older than ten," Laurel told the officer. "I'm sorry that we've troubled you. She's a bit confused right now. I came to live with my grandmother when I was ten."

      "No trouble, Miss. We're just happy we aren't looking at an abduction."

      After answering a few more questions for the officers, Laurel gently led her grandmother back into the house and had her sit in her favorite chair. "I don't know what came over me," Helen said, and moaned, covering her cheeks with her hands. "I'm so embarrassed."

      Helen wrapped her arms about herself like she needed to hold on to the present and leave the past behind. "I . . . I looked at the time and you weren't home and suddenly you were ten years old again. I was convinced something dreadful had happened to you. What's wrong with me?" she cried. "How could I have done something so bizarre? Am I going crazy?"

      Laurel went to her knees in front of her precious grandmother. "Of course you aren't crazy, Nana. You didn't do anything wrong."

      "Those officers came right away and were so kind. I feel terrible to have troubled them." She looked up, seeming to be struck by inspiration. "I should bake them cookies to apologize for wasting their time."

      "It's over. I'm home now, and everything is okay."

      Laurel brewed tea, thinking it would settle their nerves. She sat beside her grandmother, reassuring her several times.

      Laurel's brain raced with how best to deal with this latest situation. Last week, her grandmother had lost her way in the neighborhood, the very one she'd lived in for more than fifty years. Nana had gone out to collect the mail and noticed that the neighbor's new puppy, Browser, had escaped his yard. She'd followed him to try to bring him back and hadn't been able to find her way home. Eventually, the neighbor had found the puppy, along with Helen, and had brought Laurel's visibly upset grandmother back home with her.

      Nana looked pale and frightened. "The doctor said that would happen, didn't he? Me getting more and more confused? Wasn't it only last week when I got lost? This is all part of having dementia, isn't it?"

      Laurel nodded. The dementia had become...

      This faith-filled holiday tale has little romance but plenty of Christmas spirit. After many failed attempts to get pregnant, Laurel McCullough has finally given up hope, although her husband, Zach, believes it will one day happen. Laurel’s grandmother, Helen, who lives with them, has worsening dementia. Fortunately, a caregiver, Mrs. Miracle, arrives with glowing recommendations. Although Helen is happier than ever with her new companion, Zach becomes suspicious and questions Mrs. Miracle’s identity. His doubt is no match for Mrs. Miracle and her band of angels. The struggle to become parents eventually wears on Zach and Laurel’s relationship, especially when Zach secretly continues to take steps to bring their dream to fruition. Faith and doubt are at war, but Mrs. Miracle is a formidable fighter with the ever-faithful Helen as a trusty sidekick. Snowflakes, merry music, and a traditional Christmas pageant round out the story. Although there’s no classic romantic plotline, the story is filled with love and dedication. Macomber makes witty references to the Bible without being pushy or preachy. Anyone who enjoys Christmas will appreciate this sparkling snow globe of a story. Agent: Theresa Park, Park & Fine Literary.

    • AudioFile Magazine Guardian angel Mrs. Miracle's voice rings out joyfully in Cassandra Campbell's narration. Laurel and Zach's marriage is on shaky ground after a failed adoption, and they are trying to find Laurel's grandmother a companion during the busy Christmas season. Enter Mrs. Miracle, who brings many tidings of good cheer that are sure to make listeners smile, and cry a little, too. Laurel's tightly held grief is well delineated by Campbell, as is Zach's renewed faith. Campbell illuminates the challenges dividing the couple without being preachy or na�ve. Zach, Laurel, and Grandma Helen sound distinct in conversation, as do Laurel's students. Macomber's family story with romantic elements and a satisfying happy ending sounds more intimate in the audio format and is suitable for teen and adult listeners.
