Karen Kingsbury in her new book, “Angels Walking book coverAngels Walking” Book One in the Angels Walking series published by Howard Books takes us into the life of Tyler Ames.

From the back cover:   Somewhere in Heaven, a decision has been made. An Angels Walking team has been assigned to a desperate mission: a broken baseball player, the love he left behind and the miracle that might save a whole city. When angels walk, most people never know, never see. Bu they are there. And sometimes the stakes are so high, all of Heaven stands ready.

When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.

A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an old woman with Alzheimer’s who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks.

A team of Angels Walking take on the mission to restore hope for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can such small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? And can the words of a stranger rekindle lost love? Every journey begins with a step.

It is time for the mission to begin…

I like the concept for this series: angels come to look out for us and help us in our situations. God tells us He has given His angels charge over us so this series fits in perfectly there. I think this may be Ms. Kingsbury at her finest. I am not going to rehash the plot for you. You really need to read this book for yourself. You will be glad you did. Tyler, Samantha, Virginia and Cheryl are four individuals in need of help. All kinds of events are happening and, it turns out, they need each other. What really is the star of the show are the angels helping to move them into place and for the healings to begin. Keep in mind if there are angels in the story then, by necessity, there must be demons and spiritual warfare. “Angels Walking” is one inspiring, romantic book.  Issues of faith, emotional healing, dealing with trauma and loss and love fill the pages.  Ms. Kingsbury has given us a great ride in this book and she has provided us with wonderful characters that we rally around and root for.
