The Miracle Chase "is an intimate tapestry woven of personal experiences, different spiritual and religious beliefs, and individual struggles and hardships over the years. The journey is heartfelt and authentic, supplying the reader with laughs and some tears along the way as these women learn not only about miracles, but also about themselves and each other. This is a thought-provoking read, challenging readers to examine their own lives and beliefs concerning coincidences that defy human explanation." Portland Book Review 4/14/12
"The Miracle Chase is an adventure story of three women, seeking the meaning of wondrous events of healing, rescue, and survival in their lives. Their quest takes them from Catholic saints through the skeptical philosophers they wryly dub the “Wise Guys” to contemporary healers. As in every heroic quest, the chase discloses their hopes, fears, love, faith, and doubt in a way that draws them closer in friendship, strengthens their courage and compassion, and returns them with a renewed faith in divine presence and guidance. Their story inspires us also to view the world as open to creative and unprecedented possibilities: a field in which each day we are invited to chase with joy the elusive but undeniable traces of miracles." David L. Weddle, PhD, Professor at Colorado College and author of Miracles: Signs and Wonders in World Religions

Nancy Lusignan Schultz, Ph.D., English Department, Salem State University and author of Mrs. Mattingly’s Miracle: The Prince, the Widow, and the Cure that Shocked Washington City.
"If you are seeking a sign to believe again, The Miracle Chase will open your eyes and heart to the wonder all around you.
