In Others’ Words: Miracle
They cause us to stop and wonder: What just happened?
Water into wine? (John 2:1-11)
Blindness into sight? (Mark 8:22-25)
Death into life? (John 11)
More than what … miracles cause us to stop and wonder: How did that happen?
And we stumble into awestruck silence when we realize there is no answer, no explanation … but God.
My friend, author Wendy Paine Miller, wrestles with the wonder of miracles in her debut novella The Disappearing Key. The story investigates how parents turn heartbreak into dreams-come-true. But have they accomplished the miraculous? Their choice ripples out, affecting so many others’ lives, raising another question: Just because you can, should you?
And here’s another question for you: Do man-made miracles exclude God?
In Your Words: How has your life been touched by the miraculous?
About The Disappearing Key:
Gabrielle Bivane never expected parenting a teenager would be this hard, but she never expected stillborn Oriana to live to see fourteen, either. The night of Oriana’s birth, Gabrielle and her husband Roy fused their genetic and engineering geniuses to bring back all that was lost to them—at a cost.
The secret must be kept.
Oriana Bivane senses she’s not like the other girls her age, but the time has come for her to change all that. She’s tired of secrets, but does she confide in the wrong person?
The life-giving key, suddenly missing, must be found.
Wendy is a native New Englander who feels most alive when she’s laughing, reading, writing or taking risks. She’s authored nine novels and is currently writing what she hopes will be your future book club pick. Her work has been published in numerous anthologies and online sites. Wendy lives with her husband and their three girls in a home bursting with imagination and hilarity.
