Review: Wow! I just finished this book (I read it in about a day). It was not a book that I could put down. It has been a while since I've read a Jodi Picoult book and I think that helped me keep reading. After reading several books of hers in a row, you may become bored and things will become predictable. This book raises such interesting questions. Do you believe in miracles? Can someone who has no religion have God come to them? Can people heal others? I was really intrigued by this concept of a little girl who has God visit her and perform healings through her. It reminded me a lot of The Annunciation of Francesca Dunn. I haven't read that book for a while but the topic is the same. Of course, there was a legal trial like every Jodi Picoult book but I was quite happy with the ending which is not the case with many of her books. I would recommend this book if you are looking for a Jodi Picoult book.
