Book:Miracle Creek” by Angie Kim

A courtroom drama unfolds in this novel when two people are killed in an explosion in a hyperbaric chamber that is used to treat a range of conditions. Set in a small town in Virginia, the book explores the complexities of parenting, the legal system and life for an immigrant family.

Kim’s Place Recommendation: Leesburg, Virginia (and the tiny towns that surround it, including Round Hill and Waterford)

“Miracle Creek, Virginia, is a fictional town set in the Virginia wine country. Leesburg and its surrounding towns are too north to truly ‘be’ Miracle Creek, but this is the area I drove around to get a feel for what Miracle Creek might look and feel like. The curving back roads, the hills, the vineyards, the charming small town feel — all these elements of Leesburg inspired Miracle Creek.”
