Not only did I love the story but I loved how much you had God and His word a big and important part of it Of course I loved the angels too. No one can write this kind of stories as well as you do. The only thing I wish is that you could write as fast as I read. lol
I fell in love with Mary Catherine and Marcus most of all, because of what she went through. And all four of them had continuous faith, not just when they could see the results. Many times throughout the story I was teary eyed, most of them happy tears. However, when it came to Lexy and the baby, I had mixed emotions, only because I loved all of them.
Karen, I hope you will read this and know how we are blessed every time the Holy Spirit guides you in your writings. I also hope you write more about angels and unwavering faith of the characters. Love stories weaved in makes them perfect.
God bless you for writing what we need and want to read. Now to find your next book to read, as there aren't many left that I haven't read. This as my favorite for sure!
Brush of Wings opens with a meeting of angels in heaven. As with the previous two books in the series, these images have stayed with me. I love the image of angels meeting to discuss how best to help us on earth. This series has been a reminder to me to look for the angels in my life.
Mary Catherine is planning a move to Uganda to work at a new orphanage. Despite the fact that she needs a heart transplant. She goes without telling her parents or her best friend. She tells absolutely no one about her condition. This bugged me. An excellent example of pride, I suppose but I would've felt better if she'd told just one person.
Mary Catherine is also fighting her feelings for Marcus, the man she never meant to fall in love with. While reading Chasing Sunsets and this book I didn't feel a connection or chemistry between Mary Catherine and Marcus. Their relationship felt rushed and underdeveloped. However, from the beginning I loved Tyler and Sami. I felt a connection with this couple and their relationship felt real.
Even though this book didn't grab me as emotionally as the previous two I still enjoyed it. There is a satisfactory ending to each story and this reader appreciates having everything wrapped up.
As a fan of Kingsbury's Baxter series I was pleasantly surprised to see a brief appearance by two members of the family.
ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
Ember, Beck, Jag and Aspyn, "Walking Angels" team members were the first to arrive and sat near the front as other angels entered in groups of "twos and threes." The team didn't expect the final assignment to be theirs since they had worked with Tyler Ames, Sami Dawson, Mary Catherine Clark and Marcus Dillinger before.
Yet they were told to continue the mission and warned if they were recognized the consequences would be serious and the entire mission would be in jeopardy since that could stop or interrupt events "that must play out" for their mission to succeed.
Thus begins Kingsbury's touching tale of love and sacrifice wrapped in the power of faith, serious health issues, danger and a team of angel’s divine intervention. It's also a story of friendships, choices and decisions that impact the future of a baby yet to be born who will return generations back to God if Mary Catherine will only listen to her doctor's advice. However, Mary Catherine believes Matthew 6:27, "And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his lifespan?" (ESV) (Page 276) and she continues to pursue her dream.
However, when the doctor's advice conflicts with her dream of working with orphans in Africa she's even more determined to "live out the one dream she could still make a reality" while she still can. Especially since she could never be a wife and mother and have children of her own. Her failing heart wouldn't allow that.
Kingsbury's award-winning writing continues with this redemptive, inspirational romance about the trials and triumphs of a group of friends and an unborn child whose life depends on supernatural intervention. The story also highlights Hebrews 13:2 " Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." (ESV)
I particularly appreciated Kingsbury's focus on angels, demons and prayer without glamorizing the dark side of spirituality as so often happens today. Kingsbury's approach is biblical and spiritual with a faith-based story that reveals the power of faith and prayer available to us all.
