Kevin Morrell is intrigued when he picks up a paper ornament at the mall Angel Tree display. Why would a 15-year-old boy want shoes bigger than his own foot size? Sandra Reed and her son Thomas are penniless - and surviving on faith. Has God abandoned them? A story of kindness and the true meaning of Christmas.
Thomas let out a deep breath and started to write the words to the man who surely didn’t want to hear them. After he was finished, he sat there for a moment, looking at the two words right above his name. Merry Christmas.
So common and so casual.
Christmas doesn’t have to come once a year. It can happen every day.

"Paper Angels reveals the inner beauty of the human soul and reminds us all that its what we give away not what we receive that is of value and creates impact…The individual characters within this novel are poignantly portrayed in such a way that you feel you are living each experience as they unfold…Our lives are busy with to-do lists, dreams to follow, hurdles to overcome, and expectations to live up to. This book tenderly encourages us to slow down and treasure the special moments and people around us regardless of our circumstances. It allows us to see life through the eyes of those who at one time were us or at any point could be…this is an amazing read that will bring tears to your eyes."
"Paper Angels is a heartfelt Christmas tale about finding kindness amid consumerism, highlighting the historic Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. But its so much more than that too: its a story of brokenness and redemption, of forgiveness and second chances, of empathy and integrity and repaying evil with good. Travis Thrasher and Jimmy Wayne have crafted three-dimensional and true-to-life characters and woven their storylines together seamlessly. The result is an inspirational masterpiece set to challenge minds and move hearts."
