Memoirs of a Miracle Baby Book Review


 About the Book

What do a breech birth, a Sabbath-keeping cult, a worshiping ballerina, a prophetic masseuse, and a Spanish-speaking missionary all have in common?  They are all various glimpses into the life of Shiela Miller–growing from a “miracle baby” into a spoiled young girl who was then shaped slowly and lovingly by God into a strong Christian wife and mother, spurring her on to bless others throughout her life.
Memoirs of a Miracle Baby takes you on a journey into the unfolding of a favored life, with unbelievable experiences along the way.  It’s a behind-the-scenes look through one woman’s eyes at four decades of her life, as she reviews her own miraculous birth, church, dance, college, marriage, motherhood, and missions, finally to discover who her identity is in Christ, a worthy daughter of the King.(Author)

My Review
The start of this book makes a great beginning with Shiela's mother and life in the 1950s-1970s. I enjoyed all of the details through Shiela's family, birth, childhood, and adult life. Shiela clearly got her information from many sources, which I enjoyed but it did get to be a bit overwhelming. In one page there will be multiple small paragraphs from multiple people discussing the same topic of the birth or when she was a child. I didn't mind this set up at first but after a while it made it difficult to read the book. The story is great and very real I just wish it had been set up slightly differently.
