“The future world that Helen Smith paints is frightening in the fact that I could envision it being real instead of fiction. The women are not allowed to work but have to stay home. They have to cover up when they venture out of the confines of home. This reminds me of my time when I was living in Saudi Arabia and had to cloak when I ventured out of my Western compound but The Miracle Inspector is set in London, England! With the happenings in today’s world, it is easy to envision that this just might be the future for us. Perhaps it is a warning?”
–Kristie Leigh Maguire, author of Second Chances
