It is truly amazing the way books can transport you to another time and place. How it envelopes you and makes you FEEL what the characters FEEL. You SEE what they SEE and just get totally lost in it. I couldn't put it down, it was so amazing.Ann travels to Charleston from New York on the quest to see her younger sister receive her master's degree is social work. Ann doesn't know that the celebration won't last as long as she thinks. Ann finds herself riding in the back of the ambulance with her sister in the gurney. A drunk driver had smashed into them and Sarah was fighting for her life. On the way to the hospital, Ann hears Sarah humming a tune she has never heard before. Following the death of her sister, Ann begins to hear the very music that Sarah was humming in the ambulance. Sarah's neighbor- Tammy, comes and lends a hand and heart to Annie during this tragic time, and brings her 12 year old son Keith, who has down syndrome. Keith kind-of creeps Ann out because he says he can see angels. Annie is a disbeliever in god, because she can't understand why he would take someone as sweet as Sarah and leave her on earth. She thought Sarah was more deserving of the right to live than she was. God shows himself to Ann, telling her that EVERYTHING does happen for a reason, and sends her the most fabulous friends and peace at heart with her past.This is a very GREAT book. I would recommend this book to EVERYONE. Even if your a non-believer, you will become a believer after you read this book. That's how moving it is. It shows you that YES bad things to happen to good people, but not because HE let it happen.i was not paid in anyway to review this book. They were just sweet enough to let me review their work. This is 100% MY opinion of this product. I wouldn't SAY I loved something unless it were the absolute truth.
I loved reading Angel Song. It's fiction, but the story is so powerful that it was hard to put down. Briefly, it's the story of Ann, a New York interior designer who returns to her childhood home in Charleston to celebrate her sister's graduation. Quite unexpectedly and tragically, Sarah is killed in a car accident, leaving Ann as the only surviving member of her family. While settling her sister's affairs in Charleston, to her surprise, Ann finds herself drawn to Sarah's friends and neighbors. Not professing faith herself, she can't understand why Sarah and her friends do, but she is captivated by the unconditional love that they show her. At the same time, she has a deep desire to prove herself worthy by succeeding in her career. When things start to falter professionally, she is faced with a crisis of decision, forced to ponder what is really important in life. This is a great book for summer reading. It's a very sweet, satisfying story and has a great message for all of us. I highly recommend it!Thank you to Thomas Nelson for providing me this book for review.

Angel Song is an uplifting novel of dealing with grief, struggles, and lack of faith. The authors have done a fantastic job of drawing you into the world of loveable characters who are as heartfelt as they come.This book was very entertaining, but unfortunately jumped full force into the middle of the story almost immediately, making you feel like you stepped into a whirlwind of activities. A bit overwhelming at first, but soon leveling itself out, you could then sit back and enjoy the rest of this well-written novel. Although it was very predictable, with not many surprises around any corners, it was fun to imagine and then see how it all came together.Angel Song is a heart warming read showing how God helps us overcome tragedy and a hardened heart. Through this story, we can see that His peace and love have been there right from the start, no matter how difficult the road is laid.(Thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishers for this book to review.)
You will definitely want to keep some tissues handy with this book! It's one of those with an overall sadness to it. Other than that, I really enjoyed reading Angel Song.I was expecting more "supernatural" events from what I read in the description. That's a very minor part of the book. You're mostly left with the decision of what you want to believe about the book and the characters. I couldn't help but think that the angels of this story are just as mysterious as the ones in the Bible. God didn't give us a whole lot of information about angels. I like to think He wants to save them as a surprise when we get to Heaven. :)This is also one of those books that you know what's going to happen. There really aren't any surprises and yet I was really drawn into the story and couldn't wait to see exactly how things came together.I grew to love most of the characters. You can't help but love Keith! It really brought to my mind the verses about having faith like a child. This book will really make you think about angels and people in general. After reading this book, I plan on re-reading the Bible story of Hagar, because it is mentioned several times throughout the book.I'm so glad that I got to read this book, and I highly recommend it.*This review copy for provided to me from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
An uplifting page turner from beginning to end. This is the story of Anne Fletcher, a woman who watches helplessness as her sister is unexpectedly taken from her. During this devastating time, God sends both people, and angels, to help Anne overcome the tragedy and realize the immense love He has for her. The writing is beautiful and the characters nicely developed. I wanted to read this in one sitting it was so good. Inspirational! Share this one with friends and family. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
