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, expert 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 a most unexpected way.

This is a quick but meaningful read. Endearing characters and the cozy coffeehouse setting made me feel as if I were in the cafe with my own mug of mocha! Many women will relate to Chelsea and her endeavors to recover from the hurt and disillusionment of a failed marriage. And of course, I loved Manny, the mysterious helper who suddenly appears right when Chelsea loses her only employee and seems to be just what she needs. His klutzy moments and unusual sense of style made me grin. While a book like this can be trite and cliche', Lucado avoids that trap with this inspiring tale.
