When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.
A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an old woman with Alzheimer’s who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks.
A team of Angels Walking take on the mission to restore hope for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can such small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? And can the words of a stranger rekindle lost love? Every journey begins with a step.
It is time for the mission to begin…
My Comments: Karen Kingsbury has done it again! After the Baxter series I didn’t think a series of books could be better, but this one is just as good if not even better. Normal, struggling people involved in living life to the fullest despite huge problems. Sometimes Kingsbury is a little too sentimental for me and this book has some of that, but not everything turned out happily every after in the traditional sense. We see God definitely working in lives and I love that as well. People have choices and Tyler Ames displays both bad and great choices in his life, with the consequences shown for each.
Even though I don’t really like angel books, the difference in this story is that even though they are an integral part of the story, they are not the main characters. I’m sure they will continue for continuity as the series goes on, but as long as they are not the main characters, I will definitely continue reading this series. I loved this book! I wept, I laughed, and I could relate to the characters! Thank you Karen Kingsbury for great thought-provoking entertainment!
I received a free review copy of this book from Howard books in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.
