A best-selling author with over 4 million books sold. A featured speaker with Women of Faith, more than 3.5 million women have heard her speak. She lives in Texas with her husband, Barry, and their son, Christian.
A graduate of Samford University with a degree in pharmacy. After practicing for several years, she left her career to spend more time at home with her daughters and has since pursued her dream of writing. Kathryn and her family currently live in Santa Barbara, California
When Annie Fletcher returns to Charleston to see her younger sister, Sarah, receive her master’s degree, she finds herself riding in the back of an ambulance, watching helplessly as Sarah fights for life. During the ride, Sarah appears to talk to someone who is not there, humming a melody Annie has never heard before.
Neighbor Ethan McKinney lends a shoulder when Sarah unexpectedly dies. And as a carpenter, Ethan volunteers to help Annie get the Fletcher family home into shape for selling. Ethan’s presence is distracting, but what troubles Annie is her neighbor Tammy’s 12-year-old son. Keith has Down Syndrome and the guile to believe he can see and hear angels.
God begins to reveal Himself to Annie – both in her newfound friends and through heart-rending and clearly supernatural events. Annie discovers faith in God, finally experiencing the comfort that His angels really do surround us.
I was so excited when I got the opportunity to review this book!! I love Sheila Walsh and have read many of her spiritual growth books, so imagine my JOY when I saw this book. I was not disappointed. These authors did a great job.
Everyone has lost a loved one and everyone has questioned why God has allowed such things to happen. What really matters is what we, the survivors, do in those situations. In this story Annie doesn’t trust God, or even believe in Him, due to so much pain in her past. She doesn’t believe the song she is hearing could be coming from Angel’s. She doesn’t want any relationships especially one with a sweet little boy with Downs Syndrome who claims to hear the Angels too. She builds walls around herself for protection and doesn’t realize it is those walls that are ruining her life, hurting her way more than protecting her.
I loved this book. I would recommend it to anyone who loves Christian Fiction, anyone who has lost loved ones, anyone who has ever felt pain and the need to build walls and protect themselves from people and relationships.
Thank you Thomas Nelson and the Booksneeze program for the complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
Counting it all Joy!!
