Miracle Cottage is truly a miracle of love, faith, laughter, tears and determination. Living through the illness and death of her husband Fred, Arlene experiences the worst pain of her life. It takes her through shock, bewilderment, anger, self pity, and pain so deep it cuts right through her. She learns not only to survive, but developes the determination to go on and build the dream cottage she and Fred and planned before he died. Through the building process and the years following, she learns to laugh and love again.
