Night of Miracles

Night of Miracles

by Elizabeth Berg

Overview: NIGHT OF MIRACLES is the sequel to THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV, although it can be read as a stand-alone book. It focuses on the fictional town of Mason, Missouri, and the characters who live there, especially the seemingly irascible Lucille, who has begun teaching baking classes in the town. You are also introduced to new characters: Monica, a waitress at Polly's Henhouse and Tiny, a cab driver who is head over heels about Monica, but can't quite make his feelings known. Iris is a new resident of the town who has left Boston to try to forge a new life and get over a divorce. And you meet Abby, who is dealing a terrible diagnosis affecting not only her but her husband and 10-year old son. As with THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV, this novel is meant to provide comfort and offer hope, and to remind us all of the goodness inherent in every person.

Faith Bowers (01/30/19): The Story of Arthur Truluv and Night of Miracles can go together or stand alone. Night of Miracles is about people forming lasting relationships and love. A new cast of characters circle around Lucille, who after a career in teaching elementary school, teaches baking in her home. I like this novel better than The Story of Arthur Truluvbecause it has all these baking elements which is an interest of mine. Almost all the characters find love after learning to love one’s self. If you need some feel good books to read, most of Elizabeth’s Bergs are just that and these are her latest.

Carole Zwicker (12/05/18): Night of Miracles by Elizabeth Berg comes along at a time when we are approaching the holiday season. This is a follow-up to The Story of Arthur Truluv but is easily read as a standalone novel. It is the story of the importance of community in the small town of Mason, Missouri. The author has assembled a disparate cast of characters who cross paths and positively influence each other's lives. Small gifts of time and friendship bring joy and hope to the members of this small community. This little gem tells a beautiful story without being corny. It is the season of kindness and charity and Night of Miracles is the perfect book at this time.
