Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

The Scar of a Miracle by Monica Gonzalez is the heartbreaking story of a young pilot, Martin, who survived a plane crash after suffering multiple burns that saw him undergo a physical transformation and later on led him to a positive transformation; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It is a story of love, faith, trust, courage, forgiveness, persistence, and healing, and will touch the hearts of all readers. Martin dreamed of being a pilot since childhood but the fire from this plane crash not only consumed his body but also his entire life. The book chronicles the various stages of his recovery along with his life story, how he survived the harsh consequences of the tragic crash, and how ultimately forgiveness, faith, and gratitude gave meaning to his entire existence. Martin's connection with an angel helps him over a difficult moment, which ends up making him a hero in the eyes of many people.

His angst, pain, recovery, and healing will leave readers teary-eyed, and the author gives glimpses into the spiritual aspects and realms that can actually help someone come out stronger from any challenges, adversities, grief, and pain. The story also helps readers to understand the meaning of immortality and soul transcendence, and the significance of the number 7. Martin also speaks about how the angels taught him that death brings life and pain brings possibilities, that absences bring company, and how they taught to be grateful by appreciating his family, friends, and acquaintances. The manner in which The Scar of a Miracle unfolds is fascinating. The spiritual undertones and Martin's experiences will leave readers awestruck. The fact that the narrative is based on a true story makes it even more inspiring. Martin's story is touching, positive, spiritual, and amazing. Martin's experiences and journey will help readers perceive life with a new outlook and realize how pain, struggles, and challenges are tests to self-discovery and connecting with the higher power and higher self.
