Jennifer Wilder Morgan in her new book, “Come to the Garden book coverCome to the Garden” published by Howard Books introduces us to Jenn and Margaret, an angel

From the Back Cover:   A novel based on true experiences, Come to the Garden is a story about a woman’s journey with a mysterious angel that encourages readers to believe heaven is closer than they think.

Years ago, author Jennifer Wilder Morgan served as a hospital volunteer, visiting critically ill patients–praying with them and listening to their stories. As she created a safe space for those of all faiths and backgrounds, patients began confiding in Morgan about the mysterious ways God speaks to them–from encounters with angels to reassurances from loved ones who’ve passed on. She witnessed the profound healing that occurs when people are permitted to talk about these experiences, and as a result, Morgan was inspired to share her own personal encounters with God in a novel.

In Come to the Garden, the main character Jenn wakes up on her birthday to find an angel introducing herself as Margaret in the backyard garden. Lately Jenn has been struggling to make sense of the mysterious ways God has been speaking to her and is trying to understand what he wants her to know. The angel takes Jenn back through her memories and life experiences, revealing how God has been connecting with her all along. Under the angel’s guidance, Jenn finally understands the messages God has been speaking to her, in her dreams, divine promptings, and unexplained coincidences. It becomes clear that God is a faithful and persistent pursuer of the human heart.

Framed as a series of conversations between Jenn and her guardian angel, this unconventional and charming narrative will strike deep into the hearts of anyone seeking a greater understanding of God. Based firmly in scripture, Come to the Garden is an inspirational fictional story about the surprising ways God works in our lives and affirms that heaven is truly closer than we think.

In the Book of Daniel when Daniel prays, we are told an angel is sent with the answer immediately and that the two of them talk. This angel’s name is Gabriel. I mention all this because “Come to the Garden” is based on “true events”. Ms. Morgan had her own encounters with an angel and, based on these encounters, Ms. Morgan was able to build this book. So, while this book is a fiction story, it was written with the purpose of letting us know that God is at work in our lives and that He uses His angels to bring us messages and to protect us in all kinds of ways. I think that this book is a lot of fun. The characters are so easy to identify with and relate to. The events that Ms. Morgan takes us through in this book are there to help others experience the same kind of Godly love she knows. I think you will really enjoy this book and I look forward to more from this talented author.
