Basil, a 12 year-old dreams of being a reporter. He is on a quest — he must find and report on true modern miracles for his school paper. After Basil sees a real weeping icon, meets with people who have been healed of deadly illness and more, he begins to understand his faith and put it in motion in his own life.
“Basil’s Search for Miracles is an engaging, well-paced and richly-textured story. Mrs. Zydek’s treatment of the miraculous is sensitive and rings true for the Orthodox context. I would heartily recommend Basil's Search to any young person who is struggling to make sense of life and wants to better understand weeping icons, relics and healing. Ultimately, this book is not just about the supernatural—it also speaks to the gift of compassion and how it can transform us from within and bring healing to the broken lives around us.” — Jenny Schroedel, author of The Blackbird's Nest: Saint Kevin of Ireland
