Michael Louis Wells hits the mark with his portrayal of the sardonic narrator, Monroe Anderson, in this moving story of tragedy and faith. At the age of 18, Monroe rescues his younger sister, Annika, from drowning in a swimming pool. However, Annika falls into a coma and develops the symptoms of the stigmata. Monroe tells the story of his family's encounter with the miracle. Wells narrates with a mix of dry humor and tenderness as Monroe grapples with the healing of flawed relationships and the meaning of miracles. Wells is also compelling as Monroe's mother, who never loses faith, and his father, who regrets his inattentiveness to his family. K.M.D. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
