About The Book

“In a way...it was inevitable for immigrants to become child versions of themselves, stripped of their verbal fluency and, with it, a layer of their competence and maturity.”

In the small town of Miracle Creek, Virginia, a hyperbaric oxygen chamber operated by an immigrant family is set on fire. The murder trial that unfolds in Miracle Creek is wholly gripping, begging readers to ask themselves—how far would they go to protect their family? Would you keep their secrets or expose their lies, when the consequences can also affect your own future? In this debut novel, former trial lawyer Angie Kim expertly paints the tension within the courtroom along with the fraught complexities of life for immigrants.
