Devotees of Kingsbury's inspirational novels will enjoy this emotional collection of "true stories" about the miracle of friendship. (Kingsbury says that although each story is inspired by a true, miraculous event, the details are fictionalized.) Many of the vignettes explore identical themes to those addressed in her novels, all calculated to tug at the heartstrings: broken homes, struggling single parents, near-fatal illnesses, traumatic injuries, children with special needs, etc. As usual, God gives the characters inspiration in italicized text, and at least one angel-in-disguise puts in a mysterious appearance. Even the most cynical of readers will want a clean hanky nearby to stanch the inevitable tears. (May 11)
