I can't express how much I loved this book! I read it because my mom recommend it, but it had so many things that I normally wouldn't like in a book that I didn't expect to like it at all. Romance? Check! Contemporary fiction? Check! Christian fiction? Check! Realistic? (Aside for the Angels :P) Check! A Hallmark movie feel? Yep! Sports? Double check! What wasn't on my list was how relatable the characters was, and the suspense and utter brokenness of one character in particular, and how God used the little things to make the biggest differences.
This was the first book I have read by Karen Kingsbury, bit it just took one for me to become a fan! With in a few chapters, I was hooked and literally couldn't put it down! I am so glad I took the chance on this book, and as soon as I finished it I rushed to the library for the second book! Can't wait to see what heartaches the Angels Walking team faces this time!
