From the back cover: The days ahead would be easier if she could forget him. But forgetting Marcus Dillinger was like forgetting how to breathe. Impossible, no matter how hard she tried.
Despite needing a heart transplant and against the advice of her doctor, Mary Catherine moves to Uganda to work at a new orphanage. Whatever time she has left, Mary Catherine wants to spend it helping children—especially since there will be no children of her own. The only problem is Major League Baseball player Marcus Dillinger, the man she never meant to fall in love with. Neither Marcus nor Mary Catherine’s other friends—Tyler Ames and Sami Dawson—know just how serious her heart condition is.
Still, Marcus is sure in the depths of his soul that something isn’t right. Ultimately his correspondence with Mary Catherine leads him on a desperate life-or-death mission to rescue her and get her to a U.S. hospital before time runs out. Meanwhile, Sami and Tyler struggle with issues of their own. In a season when Tyler plans to ask Sami to marry him, the very core of their relationship is in jeopardy.
The team of angels walking is busier than ever in this epic battle between life and death. Brush of Wings is a poignant tale of love, sacrifice, and the power of faith.
No doubt about it all of us have angels sent to protect us. Some of us make these angels work harder than others and I think Mary Catherine falls into that category. She has a heart condition, needs a heart transplant, feels she will not get it so she leaves for Uganda. Until Marcus and her friends can figure out just how bad a situation Mary Catherine is in the angels are working overtime. God has plans for us and sometimes we miss what those plans are and go off to do something else. Until He can get us back on track it is the angels job to keep us alive and protected. Which isn’t always easy. This is an amazing story. Mary Catherine is a likable character that doesn’t really know how to deal with God’s plan and goes off to accomplish her own. Mary Catherine is a lot like most of us and it is almost a healing for us too as we read about her progress. 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.
