REVIEWS

Miracle Boy is a must-tell story. From tragedy to triumph, it fuses hope and faith in the midst of darkness and difficulty. It tells the reader to keep looking to the light even in the midst of great darkness, invoking and inspiring us to keep seeing the good when it seems life has dealt us a ‘slack hand’.  You will cry, rejoice and be moved as you see God’s design and intent for a family that has been challenged and yet prevails, with a hope that only flows from on high.

Miracle Boy is a beacon of hope amidst the darkest of storms. Through the trials of every parent’s nightmare, Charlotte weaves a narrative brimming with resilience and unwavering faith. Many times, I found myself wiping away tears as I immersed myself in the storyline, envisioning the challenges faced as a mother and parent. This true story, though jolting, is imbued with an undeniable sense of hope—a poignant reminder of the miracles that unfold in the most unexpected ways, and the heart of a compassionate God whose love is undeniable. To all the Blaxland family, may God continue to bless you abundantly.

Charlotte Blaxland’s new book Miracle Boy  is an honest and compelling account of every parent’s worst nightmare.  Her language is simple yet powerful, the story is shocking yet full of hope.  It is a testament to what the power of faith and love can achieve.  I devoured this book in a single gulp.

In this personal and powerful account, Charlotte guides us through a journey that is every parent’s worst nightmare. She tells her story with such precision and eye to detail that the reader comes to feel like a participant int he drama, rather than an observer. In the process, beyond the excruciating pain we’re party to, we experience a full range of emotions: we are with her in the fear, the love, the wonder and ultimately the healing.

Captivating, raw, a rare window into the unspeakable trauma any parent, grandparent, or healthcare worker, would flinch at reading, never mind enduring. Charlotte has courageously allowed us in to witness the mixture of emotions from all family members, as they navigated this shocking accident and remarkable recovery of their precious Oscar. It will challenge you to have compassion for those who have suffered deep trauma and leave you wondering, is there another realm - angelic beings even, that intervene as we pray?”

Miracle Boy is a gripping read.  The early descriptions of how the author found out and was told about the fall are just so intense.  The later recounting of the agonies her husband went through are similarly moving.  The appearance of the suited angel is beautifully handled.  Above all else, the depiction of the injuries, physical, potential, as well as actual, and the psychological trauma that Oscar sustained is incredibly distressing.  Being finally able to put all the author went through into words, must ensure the savoring of future joys.
