Title: Angels Walking
Author: Karen Kingsbury
Rating: 5 stars
Tyler Ames has given up those important to him, his parents and girlfriend, Sami. All in the hopes of making it to one of the big teams in baseball. Then an injury ends his career. Tyler hits rock bottom, but with the help of some special friends – all things fall into place.
Angels Walking opens with an angels meeting in heaven. What a wonderful image that was! To have a mental picture of angels meeting in heaven, planning how they might help us on earth. Angels Walking is a story of grace, forgiveness and love through a series of miracles. The story is a great reminder of Hebrews 13:2, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” A look at how the Lord uses angels even today, but do we recognize them?
I write this review with tears in my eyes and my heart full. Kingsbury knows how to tell a story and pull at my heart strings. I love how she used many people and their kind acts to weave a tale of recovery for Tyler. Each Kingsbury book causes me to think. To examine my heart. I walk away from reading Angels Walking with a reminder to watch more closely for those “angels” in my life.
I was provided with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you, Howard Books and NetGalley for the opportunity.
Angels Walking is the first book in Kingsbury’s Angels Walking series and released in September 2014. Look for my reviews of Chasing Sunsets (book 2) and Brush of Wings (book 3) in the coming weeks.
