Synopsis: “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 Cafe, 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 Cafe, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They ve come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the cafe 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 God a question of her own. Heaven answers in a most unexpected way.”
This book is all about love, forgiveness, and of course, coffee. I was instantly caught up in Chelsea’s life and her problems. Keep a box of tissues close by while reading all about Chelsea and her customers and of course, Manny. Grab a big cup of hot chocolate, your favorite warm blanket, this wonderful story and be prepared to finish in one or two sittings. Max Lucado does not preach his story, but rather shows you the beauty of faith and forgiveness.
We can all use a little help in our daily lives. We just have to learn how to ask for it. I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars.
