hc mad library1 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (5/9/14) — Kelly Cooper, a resident of Fredericksburg, Va., will be available to sign copies of his book, 'Miracle at Exit Number 3.'

  • Time: 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.

  • When: May 23, 2014

  • Where: Hopkins County Madisonville Public Library, 455 Madison Square Dr, Madisonville, Ky.

'Miracle at Exit Number 3' is the story of unconditional love and the discovery of what makes life such a gift. Growing up, Ed Cooper always looked up to his older brother, Tom. So it was quite fitting for Ed to be the one to save his brother's life. A family's faith is tested to the breaking point when the twists and turns of fate disrupt their beloved family farm in America's heartland. When a tragic auto accident leaves one family member critically injured, will the Cooper family sacrifice all that they love to keep the family bonds strong? Will they pass onto their children the faith and values they cherished so dearly?

This heartwarming story will inspire you about the goodness of mankind. You may find yourself laughing and crying as you read about the joys of growing up in rural America, normal sibling rivalries, and a parent's determination to persevere. This is the story of one family's unconditional love forged through joy and tragedy.
