David Liberty is a broken, lonely, and embittered old man. With his mind still intact but trapped in a failing body, doomed to spend his last days in a nursing home, David welcomes his impending death-his escape from life. All that changes when he is visited by an angel, Joelle, who confronts his past failings and offers David a second chance at life. At first David scoffs, but the chance to renew his body and live again intrigues him. But there is an extraordinary condition: "You will demonstrate to God through your actions that you believe and love Him," Joelle announces. David must help others reignite their faith so they do not lose eternity. Temporarily escaping his nursing home, David is thrown into the lives of people he begins to care deeply for. He hopes to reunite them withGod, but he discovers another obstacle-the angel has removed David's ability to speak. In addition, David must fight a powerful enemy, who seeks to destroy God's children any way he can-and David, as well!
Hathaway inaugurates the Guardian Angel Chronicles series with the tale of David Liberty, an old man in a nursing home who cannot speak but whose mind is lively. An angel, Joelle, appears to him in the guise of a physical therapist, offering him a new chance at life if he can successfully complete a series of trials that make him his brother's keeper. David is sent into three different settings, unable to speak but able to act, in an attempt to save lives and souls. This is a classic plot, almost allegorical (David's last name is one obvious device), and reminiscent of The Shack. The novel has imaginative promise but is flawed in execution: characterization is spotty, with some minor characters a bit too far beyond suspension-of-disbelief boundaries, though David is generally engaging and well-developed as he undergoes his trials. Sometimes the author's need to be spiritually edifying produces clunkers ("Sue and John were no longer in a healthy union"), though the dialogue is more surefooted. This will appeal to Christian fiction fans who like spiritual warfare stories. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
