4 stars! I’m so grateful Elizabeth Berg re-visited this quiet, uplifting story! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Woo! I listened to Elizabeth Berg narrate The Story of Arthur Truluv on one of my favorite audio renditions of a story, ever. She captures the poignancy to her characters, and I could not wait to read this follow-up to Arthur’s story.

While I think you can read Night of Miracles on its own, you will miss out on how Lucille, Maddy, and Nola came together thanks to Arthur, and Arthur’s character is too special not to meet in his own novel.

Night of Miracles is Lucille’s story this time around. She’s living in a quaint small town in Missouri, and she’s teaching baking classes to stay busy.

A new family moves in next door, and Lucille ends up caring for the young son, Lincoln, when a tragedy occurs. More tragedy and strife unfortunately happens, and the town of Mason becomes a character in itself as the community members join hands and lift each other up.

Night of Miracles is an easy, breezy, heartwarming tale of friendship and unexpected family. It is a treasure of a read, and I’m grateful that Berg took the time to write this follow-up perspective on Lucille along with some magical elements sprinkled in.

Thanks to Random House for the ARC. All opinions are my own.
