- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 9/23/2014
Sometimes we get so focused on ourselves and our success that we forget about those around us that were pivotal in helping us achieve our dreams.
Tyler Ames was a pitching phenom at the ripe old age of twelve. His friend Marcus was every bit as good. They made a pact to never leave the other behind. But as often happens, the passage of time changed things. Different paths were chosen with different results.
After a season ending and possibly career ending injury Tyler finds himself looking back and regretting choices that were made. He regrets the relationships he let go and the paths that he pursued. If he had a second chance there are definitely things he would do differently.
Tyler's not the only one with regrets. His parents Bill and Angie now wonder how they could have let such distance come between themselves and their son. Sami Dawson once thought that she and Tyler would be together forever. How had it all gone wrong?
Beck and Ember are angels on a mission. Tyler and the others are in desperate need of a new beginning. God in His providential way has sent the angels to intervene and redirect the lives of His children. The seemingly impossible suddenly becomes possible. Through the very touching relationship with Alzheimer's patient Virginia Hutcheson, Tyler gets his new beginning.
When I first picked this book up I was a bit leery of it being an angel story. Those stories can sometimes be a bit too "woo woo" for me. But I was pleasantly surprised with Angels Walking. Not only is the story plausible, it is uplifting and hopeful. We've all been in that place where we think all is lost, only to have the situation begin to turn around in ways we never expected. That is how this story plays out. If this first book is any indication of how the series will be . . . it's going to be good!
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
