Book Review: "Angel Song"
by Sheila Walsh and Kathryn Cushman
Anne is a woman trying to make it all on her own in New York, New York. She is flying down to her hometown to see her sister Sarah graduate from a master's program. She's excited to see her sister, but dreading facing the town she grew up in and all the memories that comes with.
Tragically, hours after Anne arrives, Sarah is killed in a car accident. Suddenly, Anne is faced with the loss of her sister, deciding what to do with Sarah's estate, convincing her boss in NY that she is capable of landing the biggest job of her career and being confronted at every turn with a God trying to convince her of His love. Will she reject everything that Sarah lived for, including God, or will she embrace her past, forgive and accept the love of a mighty God?
Mmmm. This book is a good rainy-day-coffee-in-hand-book. I read it in 3 hours. It's not a page turner, but a predictable, easy to read, feel-good, remind you of how good God is book. You'll meet unique characters like nosy Southern neighbors, a little boy who sees angels, and a handsome contractor all with back stories of their own. Definitely worth the read if you are in the mood, but is probably a good one to pick up from your local library. I liked it, but it's not one I'll read over and over again.
