Perhaps everyone could use a miracle, but very few will find the one they truly need.

Amid a war torn land, hidden deep within an enchanted forest, hides an orphanage where miracles abound. It s a magical place built by a resolute king who is determined to defeat an evil sorcerer waging bitter war against his people. Victory just might take a miracle, and so the orphanage may very well hide the key to winning the war.

A young girl named Kelsey also desperately needs a miracle. She embarks on a quest to find the mysterious and hidden orphanage. Along the way she s joined by several traveling companions, including an over-sized snow leopard and a boy who cannot speak. In a land enchanted, it's difficult to know the difference between what's real and what isn't ... and what a true friend looks like. Join Kelsey and her companions as they embark on an extraordinary adventure and a quest unlike any other.

The Orphanage of Miracles is a middle grade fiction book that examines the concept of miracles and what it takes to find or make the one you need.

There is a war going on and the country needs miracles. The purpose of the Orphanage of Miracles is to make them. The children spend every day in search of new ones, well, except Monday because everyone knows there are no miracles on Monday. But, although the garden is full of old miracles, it has been a very long time since any one has made another. In fact, no one at the orphanage can remember the last time a new miracle was made.The Orphanage of Miracles is a charming tale with all the colour, magic and feel of a fairy tale. There are talking animals, a mute who converses with birds, and Death is (maybe) a fox named Roland. Aimed at middle graders, it isn't too scary for the younger reader but it has enough charm to appeal to the older ones.The story ends with a hint at a sequel. I hope so because I really enjoyed this tale, its magic, and the characters and I would love to read more about them.read more
