When Seth Webster’s wife died, leaving him with twin baby boys, his whole world fell apart. He handed the kids over to his in-laws and struggled through his days. But now his in-laws are ready to retire, and it is well past time that Seth become a dad again.
With the boys back in his home, the days are hectic. As one housekeeper after another quits, Seth begins to feel hopeless. Then, as Christmas dawns near, an unexpected knock is heard. Mrs. Merkle, dubbed Mrs. Miracle by the twins, enters their lives. In no time at all, she has the boys and the household whipped back into shape. Shaping up Seth proves to be a little harder.
Mrs. Miracle is a quiet holiday read full of hope with a dash of faith tossed in for good measure. This version by bestselling author Debbie Macomber was re-released for the holidays to coincide with the Hallmark Original Movie of the same name starring Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) and James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek). While not filled with passion and excitement, this story’s grace lies in the simplicity of its characters and the belief that miracles really do come true. With that in mind, be ready for a slow yet wholesome journey. Curl up by the fireplace and remember that somewhere out there an angel keeps watch.
