About this title


Sisters Rose and Lily Martin were inseparable when they were kids. As adults, they've been estranged for years, until circumstances force them to come together to protect Rose's daughter. Ten-year-old Antoinette has a severe form of autism that requires constant care and attention. She has never spoken a word, but she has a powerful gift that others would give anything to harness: she can heal things with her touch. She brings wilted flowers back to life, makes a neighbor's tremors disappear, and changes the normal course of nature on the Kentucky flower farm where she and her mother live. Antoinette's gift, though, puts her own life in danger, as each healing comes with an increasingly deadly price. As Rose-the center of her daughter's life-struggles with her own failing health, and Lily confronts her anguished past, they, and the men who love them, come to realize the sacrifices that must be made to keep this very special child safe.

From the Back Cover:

This is the kind of book that invites you home, sits you down at the kitchen table, and feeds you something delicious and homemade. You will want to stay in this world where new relationships bloom out of broken ones, sisters find one another again, and miracles really do occur. Tiffany Baker

From The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin

Antoinette sits on the chair next to me, bouncing. It took three months to get this appointment. Now that it s here, I want to be somewhere else, anywhere else.

Dr. Ketters jots some notes in Antoinette s file. She has been in the room for less than five minutes. When she looks up and smiles softly, I know something is wrong.

Antoinette displays a lot of autistic behaviors, she says. She not classically autistic. She s affectionate. Right now Antoinette is leaning into me, lacing her fingers through mine. I can t give you an exact diagnosis. She doesn t fit neatly into any one category. But I can tell you that she will most likely require lifelong care.

Dr. Ketters is still talking when I walk out of the exam room, but I m not listening. As we leave, I think of the second list I made. The one I didn t show the doctor. On it, I listed the way Antoinette s fingers clasp mine when we walk in the garden. The way my heart beats easier when she is next to me. The way she taps my back, and I know it means I love you.
