LOOKING FOR MIRACLES tells the stories of Samantha Honeywell and her grandmother, Elizabeth Massey. Samantha is back home after surviving a nasty divorce, when a flash of lightning splits the willow tree and sets it aflame. The nauseating stench triggers bewildering memories that catapult her into an agonizing quest to rediscover who she was before becoming Mrs. Doctor Jack Honeywell: wife, mother--maid. She remembers childhood and her herbalist, faith-healing grandmother, Lizzie, who raised her after she survived the car wreck that killed her parents. She remembers standing in the adult healing circle, as a child, to pray for tiny Olivia, who is desperately ill with leukemia. It's a rite of passage. While remembering forgotten events from her past, strange things begin to happen. The elusive fragrance of roses, Lizzie's signature scent, startles Samantha, rejuvenates her, and eventually leads her to detailed journals that remind her of Lizzie's training. She remembers Deloe's June bug, loose in church; and Pastor Gibson's brush with forbidden alcohol. Sam remembers Bob Gilly, a disgruntled client distrustful of Lizzie's healing abilities, who once threatened the family. She remembers the fires. To this day, she can still feel the terror of Aunt Dicey's screams on one awful night. How could she forget homicidal Eugene Donner, who escaped from prison and held her family hostage with his chilling presence and empty eyes? How could she forget Gaylord's brush with death? Where are all these buried memories coming from? What is this sense of deja vu? More importantly, why is this happening to her now?
