Miracle at the Higher Ground Café is a new novel by Max Lucado. The main character, Chelsea Chambers traveled back to her hometown to run her mother’s café after her death. She discovered that the café is in a huge amount of debt, $86,000 to the IRS and she only has thirty days to repay them. She is struggling to bring the profits up and save her mom’s beloved business. She is also going through a recent spilt from her husband, Sawyer. He is a famous NFL player who was dropped by the Seahawks. Another female agent tried to assist him in getting picked up for another tea. They ended up becoming closer and he eventually cheated on his wife. She realizes that the path to saving her mother’s business is going to take time but she is running out of time and she needs a miracle. God’s sends her an angel, Manny to assist her in her business and He also creates an internet connection exclusively to her café. This connection allows customers to directly ask God a question and He in facts replies.
I would recommend this exhilarating novel to anyone who enjoys reading novels that have a Christian message portrayed throughout. I have read many non-fiction books by Max Lucado but this is the first novel by him that I have read and let me tell you, he can write fiction and non-fiction. I really liked how he was able to describe the scenes as if I was watching them happen and how he easily mixed the perfect amount of faith based concepts in. I liked how this one included angels and how it illustrated that they are ever so present helping us through our everyday tasks. I especially connected with the notions of God answering people’s questions and like most people sometimes I wish we had a way where we could ask God a question. If I could ask God a question, I would ask one about who I would marry. If you’re looking for a new novel to read, then read this one!

About the book:
Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)
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.
