A father's wounded heart. A mother's patient love. An eager boy, an impetuous girl, and, above all, the healing power of nature. These are the classic ingredients that fill Virginia Sorensen's Newbery Award-winning novel with a tender power and lift it to classic status.
First published in 1956, Miracles on Maple Hill is almost uncanny in its appeal for today's young listeners. For here is the story of a father returned from war in a distant land, wounded in body but even more in spirit, and a family desperate for him to be returned to wholeness, a wholeness they hope can be found on Maple Hill.
With language that is tender, precise, evocative, and yet fiercely powerful, Sorensen draws listeners into a year in the family's life, a year filled with small miracles that yield great reward.
Lovingly brought to life by the Full Cast Family, this is a recording for the entire family to cherish.

Wonderful, uplifting book for all ages
A Favorite At Our House.
A bonus to the audio version is being able to hear the songs that are talked about. While this may seem small it is something my children enjoyed very much.
One of the earliest scenes is the family getting stuck trying to go up a snowy hill. The discovery of the Sugar Shack is almost magical in the telling.
This book spoke to my heart. There is a desire to do just as the family did in this story, We read a lot of books and listen to a lot of books in our family. Miracles on Maple Hill is one that is a favorite for everyone.
