Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Miraculous? Indeed. Miraculous that Steel ekes 200 pages of book out of 50 pages of recycled plot. Quinn Thompson, a 61-year-old recent widower, has just bought the boat of his dreams—an 80-meter beauty capable of sailing around the world. Because that's all Quinn wants to do besides read his late wife Jane's old journals and poetry, which offer an outpouring of love and forgiveness for a man so obsessed with "building his empire" that he ignored his wife and family completely. Less forgiving is Quinn's daughter, Alex, who wants nothing to do with him. Sure that he is alone in the world, Quinn finds himself having regular Friday dinners with an unlikely San Francisco pair: smart but illiterate carpenter Jack Adams and lonely divorcée Maggie Hartman. Full of self-loathing, Quinn refuses to give in to his desire for Maggie; instead he decides to teach Jack to read. Readers follow the two through a 150-page rapturous description of the respect and admiration they have for each other, while Quinn attempts to forgive himself enough to allow himself to love Maggie. Steel ignores the old "show, don't tell" saw entirely here, and the slim plot and repetitive, drab writing may stymie even the most devoted of her fans. (June)

I have to agree with the first reviewer. While Miracle was better than Impossible by far. It didn't wow me either. The story of three main characters Quinn,Jack, and Maggie. Each in their own way trying fight their own personal battles. Basically this story is about love, redemption and renewal. If you are looking for a nice pleasant read this is it.

I sat and read this book by the pool and finished it in a day. It left me with no great opinion. While it was good enough to keep my attention...I cant say it was really great.

I tried as hard as I could but just could not get into this book. Not quite as bad as her book, "Impossible," but close. Danielle Steel is getting so repetitive in her writing. Basically, this book repeated over and over how much Quinn liked sailing and how he neglected his wife throughout the years and that he didn't realize how much she meant to him until she was dying/dead. Drivel. She could have elaborated on what was supposedly the storm of the century but ended it quickly or expanded on the characters themselves, but no. A waste of time. Very hard to get through as there really is nothing there to get into at all. Disappointing, to say the least.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my fisrt review,and only reason Im doing it is so you dont waste your time with this book. In Miracle she tells the story of Quinn (62) a man that feels guilty because he was never there for his wife and children, and only realized that he really loved his wife when it was too late. The book goes on and on about how much she loved him, what a good wife and mother she was, and how his life is empty without her. However, that changes really fast. Four months after her death he becomes friends with next door neighbor, Maggie, a recently divorced and much younger woman (8 years older than Quinn's daughter), and Jack a handyman. Then all of the sudden he stops thinking about his wife and less than a year after the death of his wife he sleeps with Maggie. If this is not bad enough, he starts to compare his wife to Maggie and of course now he realizes that his wife was not that great. That even though she never complained when he left for months at a time,while she was home raising his children and making sure his house was clean, and his #1, Maggie is better match for him. Then in last chapters all of the sudden his daughter (that hated his guts and didn't talk to him for more than a year) allows him to take her children for 3 weeks after a simple phone call.
Of course he and Maggie live happily ever after, and he doesn't take into consideration how his daughter is going to feel about a new woman so soon after the death of her mother. A woman that is only 8 years older than her. But the part that bother me the most was how quickly he fell for this woman and how he had the guts to give her the live that he denied to his wife of 30+ years to a woman that he barely knows and that is at least 20 years younger.

Wonderful story and captures your attention right away. Life is too short to read a bad book and the older I get (58) the less time I spend reading a book that is not interesting. Her writing is always great and this was no exception.

Quinn Thompson is still trying get over the death of his wife when he meet Maggie Dartman after a violent storm one night. But Maggie is also dealing with pain and lost. But these two people are drawn together over their love for sailing. But Quinn is determined to move on and out of Maggie's life.
"Miracle" by Danielle Steel is the first book that I have read form Ms. Steel in a long while, and it was sweet for me. It seem that Ms. Steel just kept driving home her point when she didn't have to. If you want to read some good Steel books, check out her earlier works and not "Miracle."

Format: Hardcover
I have read every book of Steel's. Some of her books are no more than a long, short story. This one fits that bill. The book is small and the print is large.

This book is all about a widowed man who has a passion for sailing. Everything about him revolves around sailing. He tells everyone he meets about sailing and his boat. Did I mention how much he enoys sailing? It becomes redundent. We get it. Move on.

Guess its nice to be so rich and not have to write substantial material anymore. At least save your money and check the book out from the library. I paid .50 for a "hold fee". I think it was worth .25 !!
