The End of Miracles is a twisting, haunting story about the drastic consequences of a frustrated obsession. A woman with a complex past wants nothing more than to become a mother, but struggles with infertility and miscarriage. She is temporarily comforted by a wish-fulfilling false pregnancy, but when reality inevitably dashes that fantasy, she falls into a depression so deep she must be hospitalized.

Without posting a 'spoiler alert', the 'end' of 'the end of miracles' honestly challenged my emotions. I think of myself as a very compassionate individual, but this story took me to a dark place I didn't know I had! Where does one draw the lines between an emotional breakdown, mental illness and criminal behavior. Did Margo deserve greater punishment than the ending presented? Why did she stay with Steven? Why did he stay with her? Why didn't the family who suffered demand more from her? Why didn't the law demand more? This is truly a psychological thriller to the end....
