miracle at the higher grounds cafe


What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would he answer?
Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Café, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, expert planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet, a miracle.

Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea's door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They've come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life's biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask, and heaven answers in a most unexpected way.


It might just the the 'reading mood' I'm in- you know what I mean- only certain books will really grab you. others will leave you with the blahs, but this book took 3 chapters to interest me. It is totally appropriate for pre-Easter reading, with it's good versus evil, and the importance of prayer. It is a very quick read, with enjoyable characters that read true to life. You may find yourself wishing you had such a coffeehouse in your town! When the characters learn to let go and 'let God' you will take away the same lesson, so important to remember this Lenten season as we remember God's grace. This is also a great book to give as a gift!
