Editorial Reviews

Review

"Life-affirming! So touching and down to earth... It has changed my way of viewing life forever! Beautifully written, deeply touching, spiritually blessed through God!" Grant Leischman, Author

"Excellent read. Tragic story of a woman and the abuse she suffered growing up and later in marriage. This
book shows the struggles she faced while in an abusive marriage, losing two children, and one child's battle
with cancer. She tells of hospital life while sitting by her son's bed and having to be 230 miles away from
her other child. And how she finds true love and a man to love, cherish, help her through, and spend the rest
of her life with. Janese Base, RN, BSN

"When Angels Fly" covers a very difficult and painful subject, but being written in diary form made it an easier process for me to read. This memoir shows not only the tragedy of a sick child, but abuse. I read the words of an amazingly strong woman who advocates for her children. Some parts of the book, I couldn't believe what I was
reading, but Sarah had a support system in place in the middle of that chaos. I learned a lot about hospital procedures, tests, and being a patient advocate. I felt every emotion reading this. My heart went out to the authors, but I was inspired by Sarah's strength, and above all love. This is a book for those going through difficult times,
but it is also for those who aren't-- so they can understand." D.L. Finn, Author

"This is a powerful and moving story! I laughed a few times, got angry more than once, cringed a lot, and my eyes
got sweaty quite a few times." Mark Schultz, Word Refiner

"This was a heart-wrenching story! The protagonist suffered abuse first, from her mother - a mother from hell, and then her husband, who was a maniac, a sociopath, a psychopath and any other "path" I could find to throw at him! Life threw Sarah an ugly curve with the scourge of cancer that ravaged her son Eli for several months. I wanted to know what happened with Eli, and how things ended between Sarah and Henry. I also wanted to know what happened to her mother. I was glued to the story until the end." Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko, Author

"I admired Sarah's love and devotion to her children and her loving heart comes through. How she managed to cope with the mother's ongoing abuse through her son's illness is beyond belief." Julie Watson, Author

"A book to touch the very core of your soul, 'When Angels Fly' will require plenty of tissues."
Grant Leishman, Author

"For me, this book encapsulates the human spirit. Everyone should read it! When Angels Fly does exactly what it sets out to do I believe - it reminds us that "There but for the grace of God, go I."

"I just couldn't put it down... I kept anticipating the next pages!"

"This story is one of hope and triumph, not defeat!"

"So touching and down to earth... It has changed my way of viewing life forever! Beautifully written, deeply touching, spiritually blessed through God!"

"Gripping... This is a must-read for those who enjoy following a personal, passionate and ultimately uplifting journey."

"It takes a certain amount of strength to live the sort of life Jackson has and not only overcome that life, but write it
down in detail to share with the world. That may be inspirational to some, but to me it's heroic."

From the Author

When Angels Fly was certainly a tough memoir to write, but it had to be done. So many struggle with similar issues, and they need to know that they are not alone. The cycle of abuse is such that when leaving one bad situation, and falling into another is part of the cycle of abuse. Take a look at the positives, the points in helping others get out of abusive situations, the positives of being an advocate for your sick child, the positives of keeping a hold onto one's faith.
WORDS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT LOST A CHILD/ CHILDREN
Does it get any easier losing a child/ children?  Somewhat... Is it possible for a parent to be happy their child/ children are perfect in Heaven above and feel peace with that?  Sure... (It took me twenty-three years for Eli and somewhat less for Joshua) Can a parent ever "get over" losing a child/ children?  No.  This is the KING of loss.  We can be happy that they are perfect in Heaven and sad at times when we miss them the most. Bereaved parents are continually re-writing each day as this is the new "normal."  This won't change.  We will think of our loss when other children reach milestones such as first tooth, first steps, first words, kindergarten, holidays, best friend, graduation, prom, falling in love, first kiss, learning to drive, getting married, the list is endless. The WORST things you can ever say to a parent who has suffered the KING of loss, ever after one, ten, twenty, or more years?  "You should be over it by now," or "Move on with life."  You see we are moving on with life, we just do it one hour or day at a time, re-writing life as we go along.
