Sara Smith keeps insisting she doesn’t know why she gets pregnant every year on valentine’s day, but Ethan doesn’t buy that story.
In very little time, Ethan genuinely grows to care about the subjects of his investigation and it has placed him an untenable position. Does he write the story of a lifetime or follow his heart? His personal relationships have always been a disaster in the past, but with Sara and her boys, perhaps he could find happiness…
I loved everything about this story. A Sweet and Fabulous ‘feel good’ Valentines story with love, laughter, and trouble on the side.
The story follows down-on-his-luck (pardon the pun) reporter Ethan on his somewhat reluctant quest to find out more about a single mother with no less than 16 children. As if such an astonishing number of kids were not interesting enough, mysterious circumstances surround the family. They children are all conceived and born on exactly the same day, even at the exact same time. They all look the same, as if some dastardly man forced himself on the unsuspecting mother once a year to leave her with angelic-looking offspring and nothing but luck to fend for herself. Needless to say, Ethan is in for a surprise. He not only discovers that Sara is about as far from a slut or in-over-her-head harried mother as a woman can get, but also falls in love with her well-mannered, intelligent brood.
So overall, this is a story about bonds being formed. It is a plea for fairness, a call for second chances. It asks us to be open to possibilities the rational mind might not want to consider, and to never judge someone based on assumptions, conventions or projected perceptions. It’s a story that deals with prejudice, the state of education, suspicions and jealousy, and above all, the media’s bloodhound-search for stories for the sake of stories. And in the same vein, “Luck be an Angel” is also the author’s amazing way of showing that a little kindness can go a long way, and that courage and integrity can be found in the most unexpected places. It is a love story in many regards, but nothing commonplace.
If you like books that make you think and smile, question your own and society’s behaviour, and finish it with a glowing smile and renewed belief in the power of love, then I can highly recommend O’Connor’s latest gem.
Ms. O'Connor writes the most interesting stories. I never see the twists and turns she brings to the characters until the end. While Sara seems like a woman who has so much going against her, she really is blessed. It's the people of the town and around Sara who aren't able to see the truth and I feel sad for them.
This story will keep you up reading and make you believe in miracles. I couldn't stop when I started, I had to know how the story would end. Once again, I can blame Ms. O'Connor for my lack of sleep but I really did gain so much more!
