Night of Miracles

I generally enjoy Elizabeth Berg and liked the prequel to this story, The Story of Arthur Truluv (reviewed here). In Night of Miracles, the characters we met in Truluv have aged by some years. In a small Missouri town, Lucille teaches baking classes with her assistant, Iris. Next door, Lucille’s new neighbors discover that the mother has advanced cancer. Lucille takes on afternoon care of the son. And, at the same time, taxi driver Tiny falls in love. While the story is quiet, the chapters (each told by a different one of the characters) are short and move the tale forward. As they are all interconnected, it pushes the narrative forward in a way that makes you want to keep reading to find the resolution.
