Description
Twelve-year-old Madeline believes she can perform miracles. And her biggest one to date is saving her father from an avalanche. But, unmiraculously, he divorces Madeline’s mother after his recovery, writes a book about the avalanche, becomes a celebrity, and marries Ava Pomme, a renowned tart maker. When he leaves, Madeline is left with her mother, who is slowly coming undone; her hypochondriac little brother, who spends his days worrying about air-bag safety; a house that is falling apart around her; and no clue how to perform the miracle that will fix it all. Amidst ballet lessons, insufferable recipe experiments for her mother’s Family magazine column, and a life-changing trip to Italy, Madeline learns the true meaning of faith—and family—in this moving novel by acclaimed author Ann Hood.
