Reminds me of Touched by an Angel and Hans Christian
Are you looking for a blessed quick read this relaxing last week of 2016? Are you into the inspirational, supernatural, and the spiritual? Then The Angel here by Troy Lambert will definitely sate your tastes. I calmly assure you that this mini-story about three individual boys by the names of Abel, Zach, and Jack of differing lifetimes will touch and make your heart be at peace as you look forward to 2017 because it eases the burdens of letting go of the old and the welcoming of the new.
The story begins with the street-dwelling, orphanage runaway Abel who lives off of stale and decaying food from trash disposals he finds around him. His only way of survival is through the medical care provided by a friendly doctor who runs a clinic nearby who writes him prescriptions for remedies for illnesses he is exposed to because of his living situation. His way of payment is through flowers from his “street garden” that he tends and watches throughout his days. One day, something happens and he is left with a life-threatening condition that is not treated in time.
The next story is about Zach, a very lively and adventurous middle grader who also has a life-threatening illness that puts him on track for death. One day as he and his dad go out for some wild and fun skiing, he gets into an accident that sadly escalates his condition. Zach says he has been seeing an angel (most definitely his angel of death) ever since he and his parents found out about his deteriorating health.
After the introduction to Zach’s tragic story, the book reverts back to Abel and his own time in the hospital. It is at this time I found out that both boys are living in differing lifetimes and that Abel is from an earlier time than Zach. I won’t spoil the rest of the book as I want you to discover it for yourself but let me excitingly tell you that this book will eliminate your fear of death once and for all. It is absolutely a great story for those who are lying on their hospital beds stricken with some sort of condition but is still able to read a book. Or better yet, tell this story to such persons to make them smile and welcome their tragic fates. And yes! I will stick to what I declared at the beginning of this review. It will ease the stresses and issues you have going on in your current life as you make the change from 2016 to 2017.
This book will definitely remind you of the angel of death Andrew from that CBS TV show Touched by An Angel that ran in the nineties in the USA. It also will remind you of the great Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen’s remarkable fairy tale about a mythical character who was good all her life and so enjoyed the reward of God’s kingdom afterwards. I’m just baffled as to how this book lightened up my mood on this cold and cloudy Monday after Christmas day 2016. I advise you truly, passionately, and deeply to get this book for yourself before New Year’s Day. Read it on New Year’s Eve to get desired results, God bless.
