Much like the warmth and wisdom of Chicken Soup for the Soul, the author of the bestselling Starting Over and Returning offers a rich and diverse sampling of the miracles that occur in the lives of everyday people.The hand of a pianist and the arm of the quarterback are healed. A famous writer gets a feeling that something wonderful is about to happen, then meets the woman he'll marry. A Russian painter captured by the Germans in World War II uses his art to engineer his survival and eventual escape.Bestselling author Dan Wakefield has assembled numerous inspiring stories -- including entries by Michael Crichton, Rabbi Harold Kushner, actress Kathy Baker, and singer Judy Collins -- designed to help people feeling overwhelmed by daily life, physical disability, mental stress, or substance abuse take charge of their lives through faith, prayer, and a belief that the impossible can happen because: Everything counts. Every word, interaction, or thought may seem to mean nothing at the time, but could create a miracle.Already a steady seller in hardcover and trade paperback, Expect a Miracle promises to touch an even wider audience in mass market paperback."Dan Wakefield takes us on a very personal journey through the land of the miraculous. He's been there and he knows". -- Marianne Williamson
