An Angel By Her Side: A Heaven on Earth Novel
I so loved this book! It was a very different take on Amish fiction. It included endearing Amish life along with angelic intervention. Angels seem to be a theme for me lately seeing that I recently blogged about an angel picture book for children. You can still win a copy of that book here.
This book features our heroine, Katie Bender, whose fiance died in a tragic accident along with her hope of ever again finding love. She has a gift of teaching so she embraces that with all her heart. Things seem to be going along for her, nice though monotonous, until one day when there is a tornado in her little town of Hope Falls. A handsome stranger comes to her rescue and then the real story begins....
I very highly recommend An Angel by Her Side, along with the Heaven on Earth Novels by Ruth Reid. It was an enchanting, feel-good read, and I really liked the deeper spiritual meaning behind the characters choices.
You can pick it up at Amazon for about $10--the cost of a movie but much longer entertainment value. ;) And you can read an excerpt of the book here.
Thanks to the awesome people at Booksneeze for providing me with this book to review!
