An in-depth look at the Washington Post from a Pulitzer Prize–nominated Post veteran. Morning Miracle definitively answers the question “Do newspapers still matter?” with a resounding yes. What The Kingdom and the Power did for the New York Times, Morning Miracle will do for the Washington Post. A reporter for more than forty years, Dave Kindred takes you inside the heart of the legendary newspaper and offers a unique opportunity to see what it really takes to produce world-class journalism every day. Granted unprecedented access to every nook and cranny of the paper, including candid exchanges with its most celebrated journalists, such as Bob Woodward, Sally Quinn, David Broder, and former executive editor Ben Bradlee (who gave the book its title), Kindred provides a no-holds-barred look at the twenty-first-century newsroom. As it becomes more difficult to maintain journalistic integrity, stay relevant in the age of blogs, and meet Wall Street’s demands for profits, the newspaper—more than any other medium—also shoulders the tremendous responsibility of acting as a watchdog for democracy. Perhaps no one sums up the overwhelming challenges that face the Post and its power to endure better than the author himself: “It is still a miracle that you can put 700 overcaffeinated misfits in a newsroom, on deadline, adrenaline running, secrets to spill, and before midnight a messenger delivers a smoking-hot city edition to Don Graham’s manse in Georgetown.” From the Hardcover edition.

The stories inside are interesting, emotional, and inspiring. They are both negative and positive surrounding lessons everyone needs about life, death, and grieving. The patients in these stories are children who were diagnosed with life threatening illnesses. Every child referred to us was not expected to live very long. Many of them have died but others have survived their illnesses in spite of their bleak diagnosis. This book was written by parents, siblings, friends, volunteers and even a few stories from the patients themselves. They have shared their deepest feelings and the roller coaster rides that accompany a serious illness. Anyone out there that has been through a health crisis with a loved one can relate to the authors in this book. Reading this book can assist others in understanding that they are not alone, and their unstable emotions and fears are very normal during the worst of times. Keeping a positive attitude is essential for survival. Throughout the book you will read about the importance of the volunteers who gave money, time, and prayers to keep the patients' and their families' attitudes on a positive note and helped them create happy memories. I want to emphasize that volunteering your time to assist others in need can be very important and rewarding to your own lives. When your faith is strong and your heart is in the right place, even if things do not go as planned, God will bless you for your efforts and you will learn another new lesson in life.

A Washington Post Top 50 of 2014 Fiction pick A Wall Street Journal Book of the Year, selected by Phil Klay Electric Literature 2014: Year of the Debut A Largehearted Boy Favorite Novel of 2014 Slaughterhouse 90210's Most Rapturous Book of 2014 Vol. 1 Brooklyn A Year of Favorites: Jason Diamond picks Called "powerful and unflinching" by Column McCann in The New York Times Book Review, "something of a miracle" by Ron Charles in the Washington Post, and named a must read by The Millions, Time Out, New York Magazine, and Grantland; Scott Cheshire's debut is a "great new American epic" (Philipp Meyer) about a father and son finding their way back to each other. "Deeply Imagined"—The New York Times / "Daring and Brilliant"—Ron Charles, Washington Post / "Vivid"—Elle / "One of the finest novels you will read this year."—Flavorwire It's 1980 at a crowded amphitheater in Queens, New York and a nervous Josiah Laudermilk, age 12, is about to step to the stage while thousands of believers wait to hear him, the boy preaching prodigy, pour forth. Suddenly, as if a switch had been flipped, Josiah's nerves shake away and his words come rushing out, his whole body fills to the brim with the certainty of a strange apocalyptic vision. But is it true prophecy or just a young believer's imagination running wild? Decades later when Josiah (now Josie) is grown and has long since left the church, he returns to Queens to care for his father who, day by day, is losing his grip on reality. Barreling through the old neighborhood, memories of the past--of his childhood friend Issy, of his first love, of the mother he has yet to properly mourn--overwhelm him at every turn. When he arrives at his family's old house, he's completely unprepared for what he finds. How far back must one man journey to heal a broken bond between father and son? In rhapsodic language steeped in the oral tradition of American evangelism, Scott Cheshire brings us under his spell. Remarkable in scale--moving from 1980 Queens, to sunny present-day California, to a tent revival in nineteenth century rural Kentucky--and shot-through with the power and danger of belief and the love that binds generations, High as the Horses' Bridles is a bold, heartbreaking debut from a big new American voice.

In this inspirational and informative book, Dani’s parents, Jay and Sue Shotel, vividly convey the strength and courage their daughter displayed in her battle with AML, as they tell the story of the events that led to her recovery. Along the way they provide a wealth of information about leukemia, and tell engrossing stories about their family’s journey to an unknown place, the roles each family member played to support Dani in her fight for life, the value of love and friendship, the anguish in the quest for answers, the power of positive thinking, the vital decisions a family must make as they proceed through the medical maze, and about the young German citizen, Tom--who donated the marrow that saved Dani’s life and then flew in to Washington, D.C., to attend Dani and Scott’s wedding in 2005! The vivid details in It’s Good to Know a Miracle: Dani’s Story, are made possible because Sue Shotel insisted that the family keep a log of everything that occurred during the period from September 11, 2002, until Dani’s release from the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and return to Washington, D.C. in May of 2003. In telling their story, the authors hope that the level of detail provided in this book will assist families who face similar circumstances in dealing with the known, the unknown, and the decisions that need to be made along the way. Reviews: “One of 10 Health Books in 2008 ‘You’ll Actually Want to Read’”—Laura Landro, Wall Street Journal “This is a book that will touch your heart as well as take you on a grueling journey with a happy ending.”—Anne Stinson, Book Critic, Easton Star Democrat Endorsements: “This is an amazing story of a woman who stayed strong in the struggle to fight (and WIN!) for her life. Her dedication, passion and insights in coping with the emotional and physical pain during her journey no doubt played major roles in her ability to ‘beat leukemia’. She is an inspiring figure and gives hope to all of us who ultimately will experience a life’s greatest challenge.”—F. Marc Stewart, MD, Medical Director, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance “A deeply personal, remarkably detailed testimonial to the power of positive energy and medical advocacy to bring about the miracle of a second chance at life through transplantation. Jay and Sue persuasively share the many perspectives that encompass the transplant journey....from that of caregiver, to patient to medical staff. Every reader will find many wonderful lessons and inspiration to take away from this tale. I commend the authors for their honesty and perseverance in the detail of the telling.”—Lynne Coughlin Samson, Esq., Executive Director National Transplant Assistance Fund & Catastrophic Injury Program
