Editorial Reviews

Review

The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin is the kind of book that invites you home, sits you down at the kitchen table, and feeds you something delicious and homemade. You will want to stay in this world, where new relationships bloom out of broken ones, sisters find one another again, and miracles really do occur. Antoinette will stick in your head like a beautiful song.”
─Tiffany Baker, New York Times bestselling author of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County
 
“Overall, Stephanie Kipper has written a stunning and lyrical debut worthy of a read – complete with complex relationships, deep meaning and, above all, loves that conquer all.”
Bookreporter.com
 
“Stephanie Knipper’s rich prose moves us through Rose, Lilly, and Rose’s daughter, Antoinette’s points of view to weave this beautiful portrait of a family as they grow through life’s difficult moments.”
—Huffington Post
 
“A haunting and beautiful story.”
—The Oklahoman
 
“Full of wonder, told gently and with great respect… What’s beautiful about the book is the deep love between mother and child, sister and sister, man and woman. There’s a sense of abiding hope amidst sorrow, of life and light, underscored by the flowers, always the flowers... The novel is about how all those sounds, the hum of the plants and the people, the words spoken and unspoken, the infinite power of touch, makes us human and divine. It shows that love itself is the miracle.”
—Salisbury Post
 
“This charming debut will appeal to those seeking elements of magic realism, family relationships, and personal growth, as well as Sarah Addison Allen fans.”
Library Journal
 
“The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin is a lovely story of family and love, with a few miracles mixed in.”
—NY Journal of Books
 
“…captivating…and finely written.”
—Kirkus Reviews
 
“The originality of the plot in Knipper’s debut will keep readers turning the pages.”
Publishers Weekly

From The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin

Antoinette sits on the chair next to me, bouncing. It took three months to get this appointment. Now that it’s here, I want to be somewhere else, anywhere else.

Dr. Ketters jots some notes in Antoinette’s file. She has been in the room for less than five minutes. When she looks up and smiles softly, I know something is wrong.

“Antoinette displays a lot of autistic behaviors,” she says. “She not classically autistic. She’s affectionate.” Right now Antoinette is leaning into me, lacing her fingers through mine. “I can’t give you an exact diagnosis. She doesn’t fit neatly into any one category. But I can tell you that she will most likely require lifelong care.”

Dr. Ketters is still talking when I walk out of the exam room, but I’m not listening. As we leave, I think of the second list I made. The one I didn’t show the doctor. On it, I listed the way Antoinette’s fingers clasp mine when we walk in the garden. The way my heart beats easier when she is next to me. The way she taps my back, and I know it means I love you.
