Synopses & Reviews
The San Francisco Chronicle hailed Scribner's first novel, The GoodLife, a; "the literary love child of Truman Capote and Robert Altman." Now Scribner's stirring new book takes us to a dying industrial city in upstate New York, where the heart and hope of one man, and of an entire community, become inextricably entwined with a young deaf woman. Are the extraordinary visions and spontaneous healings running rampant in Hudson City a Catholic publicity stunt run amok, as John Quinn believes, or could the beautiful Vietnamese-American Sue Phong really be the Miracle Girl? A wry, gritty, absorbing follow-up to The GoodLife, Miracle Girl is a book about disillusionment and redemption, and a book about faith--in yourself, in the people you love, and in the possibility of something greater than all of us.
A wry, gritty, absorbing follow-up to "The GoodLife, Miracle Girl" is a book about the visions of a beautiful, young Vietnamese-American girl as they bring chaos, controversy, and hope to one man and his city.
