Meet young Giorgio. He's the son of a blacksmith, lives in medieval Turin, Italy, and loves his pet donkey, Franca. Together they go charging around Giorgio's hometown, running errands, performing for his neighbors, and generally having a great time with his friends. But his father hasn't been the same since his mother's death, and Giorgio, his family, and the whole town of Turin could use a miracle.
Then, one day, Franca runs away.
Giorgio prays for heavenly help - a prayer that's answered when the people of Turin have a miraculous encounter with the Eucharistic Lord.
Perfect for fifth grade and up, Giorgio's Miracle is an entertaining tale of faith, family, and the merciful miracles of our loving God.
