A Season of Angels Book Review

I picked out a ton of Christmas books at the library including A Season of Angels by Debbie Macomber which I got to read over Christmas break.  This book was the first in the pile and although I couldn't really figure out the order of these books, I knew that this was the first book with the special angels: Shirley, Goodness and Mercy so I knew that it was a good place to start.

The first appearance of delightfully ditsy yet well-meaning guardian angels Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy. A Season of Angels is a heartwarming Christmas story that can be enjoyed all the year round, as this trio of endearing heavenly helpers returns to Earth to answer the prayers of three lovelorn souls…and must teach them valuable lessons about love and giving in the process.  Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy—three willing but sometimes wayward angels—a reach given someone's prayer to answer . . .

Shirley: She's sent to help nine-year-old Timmy Potter, who longs for a new father. And although his mother, Jody, has vowed never to love another man, Shirley is determined to help her love again.

Goodness: She knows Monica Fischer longs for a husband and home of her own, but the young woman has practically given up on finding the right man to stand by her side with only herself in the way . . . until Goodness steps in to help.

Mercy: Can Mercy bring hope back into Leah Lundberg's life? This maternity nurse desperately wants a child to fill up the home she's made with her husband, Andrew.  The wish for a child is almost ruining their wedding.

But there's just one catch: Each angel must teach her charge a memorable lesson before the prayer can be granted .

I really enjoyed this book as I do most of Debbie Macomber's book.  It is a great holiday classic to really make you understand the joy of the season using other people's life as an example.  My only problem was that it switched back and forth frequently so it was a little hard to switch characters because their lives did not overlap (especially because my version had a few typos using the wrong name).  I really enjoyed following the stories of these three people who had angels following them to try to make their wishes come true.  The first step was to get out of their own way and the not cause their own road blocks.  I hope that you check this out and add it to your reading list!
