The visions of a beautiful young Vietnamese-American girl bring chaos, controversy, and hope to one man and his city.
The San Francisco Chronicle hailed Scribner's first novel,The GoodLife, as "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 ram-pant 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.
