Book Description: "Micro Miracle" is the moving account of a first-time mother whose expectations of childbirth and parenting are dramatically altered when she gives birth sixteen weeks prematurely.

When Amy and Josh Boyes discover they are expecting their first child, they worry about money and nursery furniture and baby names. Then Madeline is born, weighing just over a pound. As she battles to survive, Josh and Amy’s lives are thrown into chaos as they experience what it means to be loving parents to a micro-preemie.

"Micro Miracle" is a true story of a medical triumph, yet it is also the loving tale of accepting the inevitable, fighting for the impossible, and honouring the most fragile of lives.

About the Author: Amy Boyes makes her home in Ottawa, Ontario, with her husband, Josh, and their daughter, Madeline. A pianist and an educator, Amy earned music degrees at Brandon University in Manitoba and the University of Alberta in Edmonton, and performance and pedagogy diplomas from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto (RCM) and Trinity College in London, UK. As a music festival adjudicator and examiner for RCM, Amy enjoys connecting with young performers throughout Canada. She is also an active volunteer with the Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association. When not teaching in her busy piano studio, or chasing after Madeline, Amy carves out a few minutes, every day, for writing. Her work can be found in a variety of sources such as music teacher periodicals or, most recently, the Humber Literary Review.
