I borrowed this book from the library

Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy--three willing but sometimes wayward angels--are each given someone's prayer to answer . . .

Shirley is assigned to help nine year old Timmy Potter.  He longs for a father, although his mother is determined to never trust another man.

Goodness is assigned Monica Fisher, who longs for a husband of her own, but she has given up finding the right man.

Mercy is assigned to bring hope and peace back into Leah Lundberg’s life.  The maternity nurse desperately wants a child with her husband, Andrew.  Can Mercy succeed where other angels have failed?

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed reading this book. Debbie Macomber told a well written story about three silly angels and three women with real life issues. I felt I could relate to Leah and Monica in some aspects. I just couldn’t relate to or understand Timmy Potter’s mother.  I kept thinking just because your husband died is no reason to distrust men all together.  Her husband never cheated on her or anything; he just died.  I think she was just scared of giving up her heart again.

Oh my! That Monica Fisher was a hard person to like with her holier-than-thou attitude.  She sat in judgment of everyone from them wearing make-up and joy in a joke. It’s no wonder she did not have any friends.

Then there was Leah Lundberg. My heart cried out for her. Desiring child of my own, I was able to feel her pain.  I know I couldn’t do her job day in and day out.  I think she was a lot stronger than she allowed herself to be.

With my belief that there are angels out there and everyone is assigned a guardian angel, I had no trouble believing that this could be happening to people out in the world as I read Macomber’s tale and right now as I write this review. This was a fantastic story to read during the Christmas season.  I recommend A Season of Angels by Debbie Macomber. You won’t be disappointed.
