Set in Tennessee’s postcard-perfect Smoky Mountains, Lin Stepp’s Makin’ Miracles is an inspiring tale that reveals why love and forgiveness are most important just when they seem most impossible.
Zola Devon has always been a little different. Half Tahitian, with long black hair and dark eyes, she’s especially distinctive in the mountain town of Gatlinburg. She even stocks her gift shop, Nature’s Corner, with items that reflect her island heritage and tantalize tourists. But it’s her gift as a seer and her spot-on knowledge from God that truly sets Zola apart. When she gets a directive or knowing about a person, she’s almost always right. And when the surly photographer who owns the gallery next door wanders into her shop and Zola sees a problem upcoming in his life, it’s only the beginning of ways in which their lives will clash and yet draw them together time and again.
The one thing Spencer Jackson loves more than his camera is the majestic scenery of the Smoky Mountains. Reeling from his painful past, he’s settled in a log home high on a quiet mountain to train his lens on the breathtaking landscape. A woman as uniquely beguiling, and different, as Zola Devon could only throw his simple, uncomplicated days into chaos-and force him to lay bare his darkest secrets. But as Spencer’s and Zola’s lives become more and more intertwined, both may discover the beauty of the truth, and the joy of the unexpected.
