This book was a compelling portrait of a family in the aftermath of a supernatural, life-changing event. If you’re into slice of life stories about families and magical realism, this is for you. I also appreciated how big a role the setting played. Hawaii itself was a character in the novel. I hope to see more from this author in the future.

I don't really know what to say about this book except that I did enjoy it. The different perspectives of the miracle and how their lives separated from it were thoughtful and sad.
