I was blown away by this novel. The telling is masterful and gripping as it flips between back story and present crisis. Miller draws portraits of two very real people, sketching and coloring the experiences that formed their psyches and constantly embellishing those drawings through action and dialogue. At times, I forgot I was reading a novel. The characters felt so real to me that I thought I was reading a true story. (And, sadly, I'm sure much of it is based in truth.) Immaculate Conception is heartbreaking, funny, poignant, and hopeful in some ways in the end. This is a wonderful read for anyone who cares about people. It is also a tribute to the many who have been damaged through the callous deeds of others.
