I discoverd the book, Then An Angel Came, by accident. I had been ill for three years with a debilitating illness called Chronice Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. At one point, I thought it wasn't worth living. I decided to try to find some answers, first. So, I went to a bookstore, and stopped in front of an isle. I didn't know why I was here, but my eyes were led to a book titled, Then An Angel Came. I didn't know if I had enough money for it, and was prepared to use my credit card, but when I got to the counter, it was half price. I don't know why I was led to such a book, but maybe an angel helped me out . . .
I had been reading up on angels, and the title interested me. Then An Angel Came is a true story about a family. It is about a family who tries to keep itself together when a death in the family strikes. Teri, Carol's (the arthor's) daughter, loses her infant son, Gregory, to SIDS -- Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Each family member: Teri, her husband, Gordon, and their daughter, Jessie -- all deal with the grief in his/her own way. This doesn't only deal with the main family, but the extended family of grandparents (Carol being the grandmother of this child), and Carol's father . . . each memeber coming to grips with life and death on his or her own.
Carol then introduces her daughter, Teri, who is a skeptic, to the spiritual side of things and meditates with her. Through these meditation sessions, Janith, a guardian angel or spiritual guide, shows, and makes herself known through Teri. In a meditative state, Teri would write pages of journals with Janith's words and messages on them. Those messages are what pull a grieving family back on their feet.
Those messages, and this wonderful family, are what makes this book a true deep spiritual experience to read.

Can the pain of death be so horrific that it returns from past lifetimes to teach us to heal? Carol Gino and her fantastic Italian family find that just this happens in Then An Angel Came. When the death of a child steals over the Gino's in the dark of night, a darkness of such depth threatens to still the beating hearts of the living. Carol and her daughter search for answers and find them in the realms of another world. The answers and the healing come crashing in upon them like the waves of an angry ocean. But it is the healing and cleansing of those very waves that bring the family to a point of karmic renewal most of us only dream of finding. For anyone who has ever loved anything and lost it, Then An Angel Came takes you through a journey of death and grief all to familiar and then into a cathartic promise of healing. Worth every tear, this book is a must read!

Like Carol Gino, I am the grandmother of a baby boy who died from SIDS. She not only captures every detail of the pain suffered by various members of a family that goes through such an experience, but, better yet, shows how even this most tragic of events can have some positive outcomes in the lives of the survivors.
Given the fact that Ms. Gino is a bestselling author, it is no surprise that the book reads like a novel. It will grab and hold your interest even if you have not lived through a tragedy of the magnitude of her family.
There's no need to buy into all the concepts she introduces to learn and benefit from the wisdom that this book contains. Just be open to parts that speak to you and your world view, and you won't be sorry. And, yes, be sure to have some Kleenex at hand - just remember that if you stay with the book until the end, your tears will be rewarded.
