Counter Perhaps because children have not yet learned to disbelieve what their eyes, ears, and hearts tell them, they seem to have a special closeness with angels. After the publication of Joan Wester Anderson's New York Times bestseller WHERE ANGELS WALK, people urged her to write a book entirely about children's experiences with angels -- and sent along their own personal narratives as witness to these miraculous visitations.
AN ANGEL TO WATCH OVER ME is the result: a wonderful collection of stories that documents and describes the extraordinary encounters between children and celestial visions. There's the grandmotherly angel who consoles an ailing girl in a hospital emergency room, and the angel who helps a Texas boy lose his fear of thunderstorms. There are angels who combat darkness, bring glad tidings, and offer comfort. For those who read this wondrous book, angels become a warm and loving presence in everyday life, a blessed part of being.
