Elizabeth Berg always writes such great books. They keep you invested in the characters from the beginning and you want to stick with the book to see what’s going to happen next and to whom. I love her books and this one surely did not disappoint. I wish I had been able to read “Arthur Truluv”
but missed out on that one. The characters in this book keep you so invested in their lives, you have to keep up to see how their lives are going to turn out. It’s a good yarn! The description is shown below and I couldn’t have done a better job of describing the story. If you are looking for a good book to curl up with “Night of Miracles” is a good one to keep you busy and interested. I would give this book 4.5 stars…..but can’t do that so 5 Stars it is. I wish I had an Iris in my town to teach me how to bake!

Description as found on GoodReads:
A delightful novel about surprising friendships, community, and the way small acts of kindness can change a life, from the bestselling author of The Story of Arthur Truluv
Lucille Howard is getting on in years, but she stays busy. Thanks to the inspiration of her dearly departed friend Arthur Truluv, she has begun to teach baking classes, sharing the secrets to her delicious classic Southern yellow cake, the perfect pinwheel cookies, and other sweet essentials. Her classes have become so popular that she's hired Iris, a new resident of Mason, Missouri, as an assistant. Iris doesn't know how to bake but she needs to keep her mind off a big decision she sorely regrets.
When a new family moves in next door and tragedy strikes, Lucille begins to look out for Lincoln, their son. Lincoln's parents aren't the only ones in town facing hard choices and uncertain futures. In these difficult times, the residents of Mason come together and find the true power of community--just when they need it the most.
"Elizabeth Berg's characters jump right off the page and into your heart" said Fannie Flagg about The Story of Arthur Truluv. The same could be said about Night of Miracles, a heartwarming novel that reminds us that the people we come to love are often the ones we don't expect
