Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Through great grief can come great joy.

In the 1950s, doctors often advised parents of disabled babies to put them away in institutions or homes. But when entertainers Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Rogers discovered their new baby, Robin, had Down Syndrome, they were determined to take her home and give her their love.

It wasn't easy. Through countless surgeries and sleepless nights, the Rogers found themselves exhausted and worried-until they began to notice a change in their lives. Somehow the unexplainable and unexpected was happening-Robin was helping Roy and Dale draw closer to God and to each other. Robin's brief life also persuaded them to do all they could to help others in similar circumstances.

Told from Robin's point of view in heaven, Angel Unaware is a touching story that has inspired millions of readers around the world. Whether you are a parent of a special needs child or have experienced the loss of a loved one, Robin's story will bring you the peace and understanding you need in difficult times.

Format: Paperback
This little book is a heartwarming love story and a heart wrenching tear jerker all rolled into one. Dale Evans Rogers shares the tale of little Robin, her Down Syndrome daughter who died at a very young age. The story is told from Robin's point of view, as if she is sitting on her heavenly father's knee relating what happened "down there." The heartache of a mother's loss, and the hope of a child's eternity are entwined in an unforgettable tale. I highly recommend this book to any one who has lost a young child, or has had to deal with special needs like Down Syndrome. Be sure to have a tissue box handy.

We lost our niece over a year ago, she was only 2 days old, and my 9 year old daughter has been having a very tough time dealing with the loss. My aunt had read this book to me when I was about her age and she sent it for her to read. It really helped her to come to terms, as best any of us can, with how "her baby" is in heaven. A heartwarming story for anyone to read.

I read this book when I was in 4th or 5th grade. The story of Robin Rogers has stuck with me for 35 years. While I have forgotten the details, I remember the essential message. All children are gifts from God, especially the ones that aren't everyone's idea of perfect.

My Aunt gave me this book to read when I was in grade school. I am now 42 years old and I still remember this book as being one of the most profound stories I have ever read. I have recommended this book often, I have never forgotten it.
Such a touching reminder for all of us that life is divine and should never be taken for granted.

Format: Paperback
Until I real Dale Evans' account of her daughter's life, I didn't realize anyone felt the way I do. We lost our 2 1/2 year old daughter this year. She had "special needs," some similar to those of Robin in the book. We always felt that God gave us our daughter and she was our own angel here on earth. This book is a wonderful story of the love between a family, their God, and their special angel. I highly recommend it to any parent or family who have lost a child with a disability.

An understanding soul gave this book to my mother shortly after the birth of my youngest brother, who has Down Syndrome. This book is wonderful. It so beautifully written from the POV of little Robin giving an account to God of her brief life on earth. If there is a disabled child that has touched your life, you need to read this book. Dale Evans Rogers has written a masterpiece which will benefit the lives of many. Thank goodness God sent Robin into their lives!

I'm dating myself here, but I grew up when Roy Rogers and Dale Evans' TV program was at the height of its popularity. One of my classmates had the book ANGEL UNAWARE, and while I didn't read it then, I read it later.

It's an unbelievable story. Roy and Dale had children by previous marriages, but little Robin was the only child they had together, and she had Down's Syndrome. The whole family adored the little girl. The story is written first person as though the little girl was telling it, and as if she were actually an angel sent down to be with the Rogers family and to teach them more about love and bring them closer to God. It revealed the extraordinary writing talent that Dale Evans--already an extremely multi-talented person. In the story, Robin herself is talking to the Lord about all the wonderful things that they did for the Rogers family. I get misty-eyed just remembering this story its beautiful message. In fact, I've gotten choked up a couple of times while writing this review.

Robin didn't live long. But the good that came through her brief life still ministers to others.

Roy Rogers always had a burden and love for children with disabilities. Perhaps he always did (he was a good man) but I'm sure that the experience with Robin deepened it. Roy and Dale would later adopt a disabled little boy named Sandy -- which is a story in itself.

If you can possibly get a chance to read this, please do so! You won't be the same after reading it.
