And now for a new book just released this month!


From the critically acclaimed author of Proof of Heaven comes an unforgettable novel about hope, renewal, and the gift of angels among us—friends, family, lovers . . . and even mystical others—sure to touch your heart.
Sean Magee is a firefighter—a hero who risks his own life to save others, running into dangerous situations few have the courage to dare. While fighting a horrific blaze, Sean becomes trapped by flames and is nearly overcome by smoke. Just when it seems that all is lost, he’s led to a window—by what he swears is divine intervention. And then he jumps . . .
. . . into a new life. For years, Sean has shut down his feelings, existing in a state of emotional numbness. Coming through that fire, he knows that he can no longer be that man whose heart is closed to the world. But before he can face his future, he must confront his past and everyone in it: the family, the friends, the woman—and the love—he carelessly left behind. 


I had not read the author's prior book, so the character was new to me. This is a journey book, about discovering the truth behind the facades that we all put in place. About seeing who we really are, and making changes that are needed to make us into a better, more fulfilled person. God tells us that we are given grace, and by his grace we are saved. In this book the angels that bring that that grace are the friends and family that stick with us, are there when we need them, and return when we need them the most. The book would make a lovely Christmas gift for those who may have lost sight of the bigger picture. It could easily be gifted with say an angel ornament, cookies and a journal, for a lovely basket of inspiration and love. It would also be a great women's bible study accompaniment.
