Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café
by Max Lucado

What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would He answer?    

Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Café, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet,
a miracle.


Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea's door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They've come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life's biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask, and heaven answers in an
unexpected way.


"Max Lucado's Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café is a vacation of a book. Fun, imaginative, and deeply satisfying. It is heaven touching earth."

-Philip Gulley, author of the Harmony and Hope series


"Step inside the Higher Grounds Café, a place brimming with hope, a heaping helping of comfort food, and a direct line to heaven. Where faith lives, all things are possible, for a family, a community, and one woman who wasn't sure she had the courage to believe again."

-Lisa Wingate, bestselling author of The Prayer Box and The Story Keeper


"Fans of Lucado's comforting stories of hope will delight in this tale of love, loss, and redemption, coauthored with Eric Newman and Candace Lee. Its likable, sympathetic characters and several surprising plot twists make it a charming and inspiring read. Reminiscent of the movie It's a
Wonderful Life
