Jason F. Wright celebrates the tenth anniversary of his first book The James Miracle with a republishing of the story. Going into it, there were certain preconceived notions. Namely, the story would be sentimental and have themes that help readers think about their lives and how to improve them. The novel does not disappoint.
Things discovered during the course of this short read include the realization that Wright is quite talented at writing compelling prose and things don’t always turn out the way one anticipates. Although the book is written in a simple enough language for teenagers to read quickly, the very theme of the book speaks strongly to adult audiences.
This book creates opportunities for readers to be grateful for their blessings and reminds them of the things that are most important. It also makes one curious about the author and how much of the story was autobiographical in nature. The story can easily be read in one sitting, but will continue to influence readers long after the cover is closed. This is a great addition to personal libraries.
