Soon customers came too. they also wanted answers. The answers came on the internet in her store. They were all talking to someone Divine.

Coffee house cozy and uniquely uplifting are the best way I can describe Max Lucado’s new fiction title Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe. From their seats in heaven, angels have an amazing view of life on earth and of the “light” emanating from holy places and people.

If you are after a serious fiction read, this is not the book. But if you are willing to use your imagination, and permit yourself to ask what if.. What if you had a guardian angel? What if God used the internet to communicate? What if you had the opportunity to ask God one question and a written response is given?
A fun, uplifting read.
This was a cute story, and I loved the cafe setting. BUT the story was a bit too fantastic, and the characters didn't seem to react appropriately to things that would happen. There were conversations that were hard to follow, and I had to re-read them several times to understand. It just seemed poorly written. Nice ending, and I loved the spiritual truths throughout... I REALLY wanted to enjoy it more!
This book was about faith, forgiveness and the healing power of God's love. If you like reading books by Max Lucado, then you will like this one too.

A sweet heavenly read. The author shows the power of prayer and the need of so many. Sometimes our heart and soul just need a refresher course.
Really good story, but at first got a little confusing with the shifting of perspectives. Once I was used to it, I really enjoyed it.
