The Miracle Stealer book. Andi’s little brother is buried alive in a tragic accident.
The Miracle Stealer is a great read. Author Neil Connelly takes readers on a journey with Andi as she struggles to decide if she has faith or if fate depends on her actions alone. It's a book about faith and what happens when you lose it, and also what happens when desperate people have too much. It's a book about love, and also the seemingly overwhelming power of guilt. This is a book that takes an unflinching look at our beliefs and concludes that "maybe" is okay. It is a struggle many face, often more than once in life. Connelly's story will speak to many and perhaps answer the question for some.
